Fall poker in Mississippi is the best time to visit Tunica. The best action in town is consistently found at Horseshoe and there’s no better time to play than football season.
Every Monday, Thursday and Sunday play football squares. The game board has 100 squares up for grabs. Each axis (home and visitor) will have no numbers assigned while squares are being signed. Starting at noon on each game day, each player actively playing at least one hour with a player’s card logged in is eligible to write their name in a square. Each person may earn one square.
In the event the board doesn’t fill up, participants will receive one ticket each hour for a chance to write their name in an additional square. The poker supervisor will pick up the entry tickets and place them into the drawing drum before the kickoff of each game. At game time, entry tickets will be randomly drawn from the drawing drum to fill the any remaining empty squares.
Once the board is filled with signatures, the poker team will randomly draw numbers to assign to the squares. These numbers will remain on the board for two quarters and then at halftime a new set of numbers will be drawn and they will remain until the end of the game.
Each Sunday and Monday game is worth $500. At the end of each quarter, $100 will be given away to the score’s corresponding square. The final score is worth $200.
Thursday night games are worth $1K with each quarter awarding $200 and the final score paying $400.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up some pre-holiday cash and enjoy the game with friends. If you’re visiting from out of town, call the poker room at 800-303-7463 to book the poker room rate. – Jennifer Gay
