Ameristar gives back to its poker players



Ameristar Casino St. Charles is offering a $25K freeroll to players with 100 hours of cash play between May 3 and July 7. The tournament will pay $10K for first place and will run July 14.

Another way Ameristar rewards live players is with bonus chips for nightly tournaments (500 chips are awarded for each hour of live play to a max of 2,000). These are added to the starting chips of the nightly tournaments. Bonus chips can be purchased for $5 per 500, again up to 2K.

Most tournaments are typical no-limit hold’em, but there’s some variety. Tuesdays are bounty events and the first Saturday of each month offers an Omaha/8 tournament. The times and buy-ins vary each day, so call the poker room.

The winner and runner-up of each daily event earn entry into the monthly Tournament of Stars Championship on first Saturday of the month.

Players earn $1 per hour in comps for live play. This room also offers progressive high-hand jackpots. Check the display in the room for the jackpot payouts.
