Come Win Money Other People Have Lost at Casino Del Sol

Whoever likes free money, raise your (virtual) hand!

Okay, for the four of you that didn’t comply, please click on another link. Everyone else, read on.

Casino del Sol’s renovated poker room finally opened last week after several months of work. The upgraded, expanded room boasts 13 poker tables, nearly as many flat screen TVs and a self-service food/drink area that several nights a week includes free buffet-style grub.

But, back to the free money …

To christen the redone room, Del Sol is giving away $40,000 through a series of drawings every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through the end of October.

Each drawing is worth $250, and is based on who’s name gets picked out of a rolling bin of tickets collected for each time a player hits a full house or better in a live cash game. So, of course, that means you’ve gotta get into a game and hit some high hands in order to be able to scoop up some extra cash.

The drawings begin at 5:30 p.m. on Fridays, 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and will be ever half-hour or so. Each weekend will see $8,000 given away.

The $40,000 giveaway is one of many promotions Casino del Sol is running in the weeks and months leading up to the opening of its hotel, which goes live on Nov. 11. That’s 11/11/11 for all the numerologists who stumbled across this post.

Del Sol’s poker room also has a variety of promotions tied toward frequent play, whether it be in terms of hours logged in cash games or performance in tournaments. Players are currently trying to accumulate 40 hours of live play by early November to get a free entry into a $20,000 freeroll tournament Nov. 17-19.
