In March, Table Mountain Casino in Friant paid out $120,000 in cash and prizes with much more to come in May. Current promotions include Four of a Kind Frenzy, High Hand, High Hand Second Chance, Hot Seat, Moonlight Splash, Full House of Fortunes, and $5,000 Bad Beat Must Go.
Four of a Kind Frenzy: All active players in the poker room that make a four-of-a-kind with a pocket pair will win $50 to $200. Each Thursday denominations will be seeded at $50 going up $25 each day until it is hit. Once a specific four-of-a-kind is hit it will not be available again until the following Thursday at 8:00 a.m.
High Hand: Beginning with the start of live play on Tuesday until the close of the room on Friday night, the high hand will be awarded each hour with $50 to $100 depending on how many live play tables are in action. With one table there will be one winner of $50, two to seven tables—one winner of $100 and eight to ten tables— two winners of $100. Both hole cards must play.
High Hand Second Chance: On Mondays, every full house or better earns a drawing ticket which is placed in a barrel. Then, each hour starting at 4:00 p.m., tickets will be drawn and winners awarded cash. As the evening gets later there are more winners each hour. The first drawing gives one winner $50 and the final drawing at 1:00 a.m. awards five players each $100. Players must be present to claim the prize, with any unclaimed prize money awarded through a hot seat drawing.
Hot Seat: Every Monday and Wednesday one player will be randomly selected by seating cards every hour to win $100. The first of 10 Hot Seat drawings will be at 8:00 a.m. and the last will be at 5:00 p.m. If the seat chosen has a missed-blind button they will redraw until a guest who meets the requirements is picked.
Moonlight Splash: Every Saturday and Sunday beginning at 1:00 a.m., and each hour until 5:00 a.m., tables that are contributing to the player’s pool will be put into a drawing and one table will be selected for a splash pot of $100 on their next hand.
Full House of Fortunes: Every Friday and Saturday poker room guests can win $100 to $1,000 for making the selected full house hands. At 8:00 a.m., or when the first live game begins, the dealer will shuffle and spread the deck. The supervisor will randomly select the card representing the full house that will qualify for the cash prize. For example, if a 9 is selected any hand of 9s full (both hole cards must play). The pay structure on this one is complicated—see the poker room for more details!
$5,000 Bad Beat Must Go: On May 26 and 27 (the last weekend of the month) this jackpot begins on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. and is guaranteed to pay off by midnight Sunday. It starts off at four-of-a-kind beaten by a straight flush, then as long as it is not claimed, the requirement gets easier as the weekend goes along. The final hour is any ace-high straight or better beaten. If that doesn’t do it, then at midnight all active players will share the prize.
Tournaments: As if all this wasn’t enough, they also have tournaments every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
