The Encore Back Bay Poker Run
Our first Back Bay Poker Run is tonight at 6:00 pm with DJ Southern Destiny spinning your favorite water & gambling tunes. Listen as he flies high above the Back Bay of our 81 region var and giving us Coast Guard reports of boating mishaps and channel speed limit violations. The free boats will be at the Welcome Center Harbor, the Encore Marina as well as the docks of all our venues and attractions.
It's a race and your invited. Collect as many cards as possible to create the winning poker hand, and you win! Be advised, SAFE BOATING IS NO ACCIDENT so WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET!! Unlike the Poker Run with cars, there is a lot more area to cover (81 regions) and they are all accessible via the Encore Sea. Remember flying will be turned off during the event, so unless ya wanna walk...you best grab a boat and cruise.
Once you start up your outboard engines remember the rules of the open sea - Arrow forward - to go forward, arrow back - is reverse, page up - shifts gears up, page down - shifts gears down. Poker card kiosks will be at the following locations, remember best 5 cards win, Jokers are wild (so is our DJ) and duplicate cards are also wild. 5 card ties will be decided by adding a 6th or 7th card if needed.
The winning hand will receive E$1,000.00 !!
