Studz Poker Club is set to give away over $220,000 in High Hands during the month of February with no day of play likely to be more frantic than Saturday, Feb. 23, when the new Super Charged High Hands promotion will be offered. The action is expected to be quick that day as a $500 High Hand bonus will be awarded every 20 minutes, making for a total of $1,500 to be given away each hour. The Super Charged High Hands will begin at 12:20 p.m. and will last until midnight.
Other High Hand payouts during the month include $200 hourly at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and noon every Monday through Saturday, with $200 High Hands to continue every half hour until midnight on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. That number more than doubles to $500 every half hour on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 12:30 p.m. until midnight.
February will also see the conclusion of the $4,000 Big Game Squares Promotion on Sunday, Feb. 3. Entries in the Big Squares Promotion are earned every time a player gets a Full House, with drawings held each Sunday at 3 p.m., including Feb. 3, to award a spot on the Big Game Squares Board.
Once on the Board, participants will have a chance to win $500 in cash at the end of each quarter of the “Big Game,” with an additional $500 awarded at two bonus drawings, one at halftime and one at the conclusion of the “Big Game.”
In addition to a February that overflows with casino and poker promotions, the Twin Spires Tavern, located inside the Casino, will offer a Valentine’s Day special that will run from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Feb. 14. Guests can indulge in a three-course dinner with a complimentary champagne toast at a cost of $50 per couple.
