All In Free Poker has strengthened its relationship with the Isle Casino & Racing, offering seats in Isle tournaments at prizes.
For the past five years, All In Free Poker has conducted free Texas Hold 'em tournaments at bars and restaurants in South Florida, especially catering to players reluctant to try playing in casinos. But as players have become more confident in playing for free, some are less intimidated now, co-owner Bryan Oulton said.
"We know we’re part of a natural transition," Oulton said. The 33 participating restaurants and bars often hold up to four tournaments a night, and in past years the Isle hosted a quarterly tournament for All In Free Poker players.
But now All In offers prizes such as $50 in Isle slot play, an entry into a $100 buy-in Isle tournament and a weekend champagne brunch for four at the Isle's buffet.
Also, the one player with the best hand of the night at All In play across South Florida receives a weekday buffet for two. All In also has weekly and monthly tournaments, and those winners receive entries into Isle tournaments.
"It’s a win-win for both of us," co-owner Sandy Swartzbaugh said.
In addition to the Isle's prizes, many of the restaurants also offer gift certficates of $10 or $25 to tournament winners. More info at AllInFreePoker.com.
