Social media has become an important source of news in many areas. Poker is ripe for rapid sharing of poker hands and situations from players. It has also been embraced by poker venues.
All of the St. Louis casinos with poker rooms have Facebook pages and some have Twitter feeds. These pages list general announcements for the casino, restaurants, entertainment and promotions.
You can find Hollywood Casino St. Louis on Facebook at facebook.com/HollywoodCasinoST L. Ameristar Casino St. Charles is on Facebook (Ameristar.Casino.SC) and Twitter (@AmeristarSC).
The sister Pinnacle properties River City Casino and Lumiere Place Casino each have poker Facebook pages (RiverCityPoker and LumierePoker) and Twitter accounts (@RiverCityCasino and @LumierePlace) but they have taken social media to YouTube as well (youtube.com/user/rivercitycas ino and youtube.com/user/LumierePlaceC asino). There you can find videos about food and beverage, entertainment and promotions. Their Facebook poker pages post about current games running, tournament schedule, bad-beat jackpot size and recent bad-beat winners. This is an active source for current information while promoting new games they’re trying to start.
A last resource is useful across all venues. The Twitter feed for the St. Louis Poker Atlas (@StLouisPoker) makes announcements of the tournament each day with the venue, time and buy-in.
