Bullwhackers Casino is Making a 'Big Deal' Over Its New Video Poker Room

20 April 2010

LACK HAWK, Colorado -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- No bull, 'the only real gambling in Black Hawk' is about to get even bigger and better! On April 9, Bullwhackers Casino debuts the only room dedicated exclusively to video poker in the Black Hawk/Central City area. The 'Big Deal Video Poker Room's' spacious layout will feature 120 poker machines that are sure to keep the action hot at Bullwhackers. And unlike many other Colorado casinos, Bullwhackers is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Bullwhackers General Manager Bruce Lowder says 'The Big Deal Video Poker Room' is a first-class facility that provides unmatched comfort and amenities for video poker players in Colorado.

"Our video poker players have told us they would prefer playing in a more spacious setting that's all about their favorite games, so that's exactly what we're delivering," said Lowder. "The wide aisles, unmatched variety of games and superior guest service offered in 'The Big Deal Video Poker Room' are features that set us apart from other Colorado casinos and will resonate with every video poker player."

The poker room is located on the lower level at Bullwhackers and can be accessed via elevators or stairs found near the front of the casino. A fulltime-dedicated bartender will serve guests in the room from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.

The Big Deal Video Poker Room features 16 different types of machines including four games that are exclusive to Bullwhackers in the Black Hawk market:

  • Random Rewards® Poker - Several lower ranking hand combinations – from the flush to the straight flush – have randomly designated jackpots, up to 2,000 additional credits per qualified hand.
  • Dream Card Poker - A maximum bet increases the chances of winning a Dream Card™.
  • Quick Quads (single hand) - Turn a 3-of-a-kind hand into a 4-of-a-kind Quad winner – wager a sixth credit to fund the bonus without taking anything away from the standard pay-table.
  • Pick a Pair Poker - Players get to see the first two cards of a hand and then pick one pile of three cards to complete the hand from two piles where all the player can see is the top card.

"Eventually we will be linking more games together and providing higher progressives," said Lowder, "and Bullwhackers will have the best pay tables in town for video poker."

Additional video poker games at Bullwhackers range from old favorites to the latest games being offered in the industry:

  • 50 Play Poker - Allows guests to play 50 hands at once with bets of up to five coins per hand.
  • 100 Play Poker – Guests can play 100 hands on the same screen with poker variations like Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, and Double Bonus.
  • All Star Poker – Players will have their pick from as many as eight games including Triple Play™ and Five Play® Poker, Spin Poker™ and Super Times Pay Poker®.
  • Ultimate X - A bonus multiplier is awarded to each active hand ending in a winning combination.
  • Super Triple Play - For just one extra coin per hand bet, players get a shot at winning double and even triple the normal jackpot on four-of-a kinds.
  • Super Times Pay Spin Poker - Provides a great "cross-over" game for poker and slot players and adds a mystery multiplier event.
  • Multi Strike Poker - Play the first hand of up to four possible separate hands of video poker using the standard pay table. With a winning hand, the game continues with a new deal from a fresh deck and double the pay-table value on the second rung.
  • Spin Poker – Players enjoy a "hybrid" poker-video slot game providing tons of action.
  • Double Down Stud – Players start with being dealt a four-card hand and can complete the hand in normal fashion by drawing a fifth card, or if the first four have potential to form a winning hand - from as little as a pair of 6s or better - the player can double the wager before pressing the Draw button for a chance to win up to 20,000 credits for a royal flush.
  • GK Multi Game - Features Triple hand and Five Hand Poker play and lots of play action.
  • Bally Game Maker - This machine has several games to choose from including Slots, Video Poker, Black Jack, Keno or even Bingo.

In addition to video poker, Bullwhackers Casino offers more than 390 favorite slot machines as well as table games including Roulette, Craps, Bonus 6 and Blackjack. Guests have the choice of dining at either Gregory's Restaurant, serving Black Hawk's 'best burger' or the Casino Café which delivers food to guests at their machine. Also, members of the Lucky Bull Club can even receive free gas via comps at the Bullwhackers Gas Station!
