FLORIDA POKER ROOMS...Incentives to get you in the door!

Poker Rooms in the Greater Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/Palm Beaches are located in a myriad of venues, such as dog and horse tracks, Jai-Alai Frontons, day boats, and even two different tribal Indian Casinos. They all want their piece of the action, and some offer very inviting incentives and bonuses to get you in their door.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the inventive methods the various South Florida Poker Rooms are utilizing to draw patrons to their establishments.

The Dania Jai-Alai Poker Room (301 E. Dania Beach Blvd., Dania) offers a $5 chip bonus when you start play before 12:30 p.m, as well as a complimentary continental breakfast. If you catch Four of a Kind of Jacks or higher…or a Straight Flush, you receive T-shirt. A Royal Straight Flush gets you the T-shirt, and a $25 voucher for dinner for two at the fronton’s clubhouse. They have also had specials of giving away TV's, and recently a cruise to those who play in mini-tournaments.

At Pompano Park Race Track (1800 SW 3rd St., Pompano Beach) the players are given a “Slot Club Card”, and earn points for hours of play. These can be redeemed for betting vouchers or items in their gift shop.

The Hollywood Greyhound Track Poker Room (831 N. Federal Hwy., Hallandale) offer players free soft drinks and snacks, from noon to midnight. They also give an "award" (they don't want to call it a bad beat jackpot) of $2,000 for Aces full of Jacks being beat.

The Micosukee Indian Casino (Homestead) offers an amazing $17,300 for a Royal Flush in Spades in Omaha, and $13,000 in Hold ‘em for the same hand. Royal Flushes in different suits receive varied amounts with the lowest being $1,100 in Clubs. These figures vary depending on the day’s action. Four Aces will earn you $50, and any Four of a Kind gets you an entry into a drawing for some big-ticket items (car/cash).

The Hard Rock Casino (Hollywood) offers a healthy bad beat jackpot if Aces full of Jacks or better is beat. Last night it was $63,000.
