While Las Vegas nurses a hangover from the non-stop summer action, poker players can still get their fix of huge money with the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort’s $100,000 guarantee Big Slicks Poker Classic, which will be featured as part of the Card Player Poker Tour this August.

The $360 buy-in main event boasts a whopping five separate starting flights, beginning Thursday, Aug. 10 and continuing with both morning and night flights on Friday and Saturday.

If the $360 buy-in is out of your bankroll’s comfort zone, don’t fret. Scarlet Pearl has the players covered with numerous satellites options. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 6 p.m., you can score your seat into the main event for just $70. The satellites continue even into the series schedule with opportunities on Aug. 4, 7-11. One in every eight players will earn a ticket.

The 14-event series kicks off Wednesday, Aug. 2 and wraps up Sunday, Aug. 13 with the conclusion of the main event. The tournament schedule is chock-full of variety, with games such as no-limit hold’em, Big O, stud eight-or-better and pot-limit Omaha. Players can choose from a $130 survivor tournament, a $130 ante only tournament, and even a $70 double shootout.

Anyone who manages to take down one of the first 12 events on the schedule will also receive a seat into the main event.

The New Way To Unwind

The Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort is the newest and most exciting property on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, with bright, friendly spaces and an atmosphere of resort modernity complemented by southern hospitality. In fact, the 2017 Southern Gaming Reader’s Choice Awards named Scarlet Pearl the winner in Best Casino Personnel, Best Customer Service, and Best Hotel Rooms.

The 68,000-sq. ft. facility has 300 inviting hotel rooms bursting with amenities such as custom bedding, spa-like bathrooms, and superior comfort and lighting. Stay in one of their luxurious rooms, and you’ll soon understand why Scarlet Pearl took home the 2017 Covey Award for Best Casino Hotel.

The New Way To Win

The Big Slicks Poker Room is the place to be on the Gulf Coast with ten full-equipped poker tables with USB chargers and table-side dining. Players will undoubtedly enjoy the spacious layout, complimentary Wi-Fi, and generous $2.50 an hour in comps on a Pearl Rewards Card.

Additionally, there are always promotions to give back to the players such as Splash The Pot, a $50 bonus added to pot when a flop contains three of the same suit. Players can even earn an extra 1,500 in tournament chips by showing the previous day’s tournament receipt.

“The Scarlet Pearl is home,” said Poker Room Manager Karen Kaegin. “Everyone is treated like family. The property is beautiful and reflects the owner’s genuine love for the casino patrons and the family that works here. We are excited to host Big Slicks Poker Classic this August, not only for the poker action, but to showcase the property and the team that makes it work.”

The casino features poker, as well as a full slate of table games including craps, blackjack, roulette, pai gow poker, three card poker, Cajun stud poker, mini baccarat, and more. Scarlet Pearl also has more than 1,550 slot machines on site, including 75 video poker machines.

The New Way To Dine And Have Fun

Anchored by the award-winning Scarlet’s Steaks & Seafood, the Scarlet Pearl is home to top-notch culinary offerings. Enjoy perfectly grilled rib-eye steaks at Scarlet’s, or more casual dining at Under The Oak Café, Chopstx Noodle Bar, and the Waterfront Buffet.

The fun continues at the family-friendly Lava Links Miniature Golf Course, which features excitement for all ages as you putt your way past an erupting volcano. Afterwards, you can cool off in the luxurious shade of the Garden Oasis Pool or take in a show or concert at the Strand Event Center.
