This offer is open to all live action Hold’em and Omaha cash game players. The offer will be available from Sunday, January 7, through Saturday, January 13, and will run from 18:00-02:00 local time. During that time, eligible players can win a minimum $300 High Hand bonus prize if they meet the requirements specified below.

  • Qualifying Hands:
    • Hold’em: ACES FULL or better
    • Omaha: QUAD DEUCES or better.
  • If a qualifying hand is not dealt within the time allocated, the $300 prize will be rolled over to the next hour. This means that the next High Hand winner will be awarded $600.
  • The High Hand offer and supervisor tracking will only apply from 18:00-02:00 local time during the offer period.
  • If a Royal Flush is dealt the guest will automatically receive a $300 prize and the next level of tracking will not begin until the current level has elapsed.
