Building on the success of the 2015 inaugural promotion, Scientific Games Corporation has announced that the 2016 Shuffle Master Classic Three Card Poker event will take place in Las Vegas on September 26.
Qualification for this year’s event will take place at 219 participating casinos across the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas through August 31. The Shuffle Master Classic event then culminates in an exciting Three Card Poker National Championship event at The Venetian Las Vegas (pictured).
The top seven players will be awarded a share of the $250,000 purse, with the winner receiving the top prize of $100,000 in cash and year-long bragging rights as the luckiest Three Card Poker player in North America.
The Shuffle Master Classic promotional event is open to any player who visits one of the participating casinos during the qualifying timeframe. To qualify for the Three Card Poker National Championship, players must hit a ‘Classic Hand’ on one of 10 Shuffle Master proprietary table games: Three Card Poker, DJ Wild, Flushes Gone Wild, Four Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Let it Ride, Mississippi Stud, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, Texas Hold ‘Em Bonus and Crazy 4 Poker.
“This innovative proprietary table games promotional event provides an exciting experience for players and offers a unique marketing opportunity for participating casinos,” said Scientific Games’ senior vice president of table and utility products, Roger Snow.
