Tropicana AC wraps up its 30-year anniversary celebration with an astounding million-dollar blackjack event
From now through February 19, excitement is in the cards at Atlantic City’s legendary Tropicana Casino & Resort. The casino is abuzz due to the $1 Million Dollar Blackjack Challenge, a big money promotion which is open to all members of the Trop’s Diamond Club.
The promotion, which launched on December 1, allows players throughout the casino to earn free entries into the promotion just by playing their favorite games. At the blackjack tables, one entry is awarded every time a player is dealt a blackjack. One entry is also awarded every time a poker player gets a straight or better while playing Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker, Texas Hold ‘em, Caribbean Stud and Let it Ride. Meanwhile, traditional poker players can earn an entry with a full house or better.
Every craps player actively playing at a table when a 12 is rolled will receive an entry; a mini-baccarat player can get into the promotion when a natural nine wins at the table; and everyone actively playing roulette when a zero or double zero hits gets an entry. Slot players are getting in on the action, too; everyone who earns a hand-paid jackpot is given a free entry. Hourly entries are also being issued to slot players between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. each day, while new members in the Diamond Club are being given entries just for signing up.
On Sunday, February 19, 2012, participating players must deposit all earned entries into the drawing drum located in Palm Walk by 3:30 p.m. At 4 p.m., seven finalists will be randomly selected to play in the finale. Each finalist will be dealt one hand of blackjack at the final event.
If any of the seven finalists is dealt a blackjack in the first two cards, that player wins $10,000. A blackjack in spades is worth a $100,000 cash prize. And any player receiving three sevens on the first three cards will win the $1,000,000 grand prize, to be paid over 25 years.
“As we conclude the celebration of our 30 year anniversary, it’s a great opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our loyal players,” said Tony Rodio, president and chief executive officer of Tropicana. “What better way to do that than by giving you a shot a one million dollars?”
