Livermore Casino once again held a highly successful Insider Tournament that was one for the books. After a very competitive four-month tournament series, the top 40 finalists played on Feb. 10 for a share of the $19,000 prize pool.
After several hours of play, the top four chopped the remaining money to take home nearly $3,000 each. Congratulations to all the finalists who played their way to the end of this series.
On Feb. 20 Livermore Casino hosted their annual Chinese New Year party celebrating the Year of the Dog. Guests enjoyed a fully hosted lunch and dinner buffet, DJ, karaoke, and amazing promotions all day and night. Prizes of cash, tournament entries, casino swag, and lucky red envelopes were given away. Their next party will be a 10-year anniversary party in May, so stay tuned for the final date.
