Erie, PA, January 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Presque Isle Downs and Casino will host a $4500 Invitation Only Free Roll on Sunday, January 29th at 11:30 am in the casino poker room. A player receives an invitation to the event by playing a minimum of 20 hours in cash games January 1st through 11:59 on January 21st, 2012. Registration opens January 22nd at 10 am and will remain open until the first 90 participants fill the event.
“This will be our first free roll tournament at the casino since we opened in October,” said Christine Stacy, Poker Room Manager.
A free roll tournament is different from other types of tournaments in that there is no entry fee to participate, rather players ‘earn’ an entry based on their live game play.
“A Free Roll Tournament is designed to reward our regular players and generate interest for our casual players as well,” said Stacy. “It is a great way to reward the people who enjoy coming here to play.”
The new Presque Isle Downs and Casino poker room features nine tables in a state-of-the-art glass enclosed smoke free environment. The poker room offers live poker games in a wide range of stakes, from $3-6 Limit, $1-3 No Limit to the highest limits customers care to play.
The poker room also features table side dining and cocktail service.
“We have one of the premiere boutique poker rooms in the region,” said Fred Buro, Presque Isle Downs and Casino President and VP and Chief Marketing Officer of parent company MTR Gaming Group Inc.
“We hope to fortify Presque Isle Downs reputation as the place to play.”
As part of the casino’s effort to offer a world-class experience, legendary poker player Chris Moneymaker was recently named the official Poker Ambassador for Presque Isle Downs and Casino. Moneymaker will frequent the casino periodically, play in tournaments and participate in a variety of special events.
