Casino sponsoring poker run, giveaway

Jul 14, 2014 - From staff reports

The Wind River Hotel and Casino will host its annual poker run July 26 to help celebrate its motorcycle giveaway.

Ride the Winds Poker Run registration begins at 10 a.m. with the event starting at 2 p.m. The casino will match the amount raised during the event, and the winner will select a charity where the money will be donated. All participants must return to the casino by 6 p.m., and the winners will be announced at 7 p.m. with prizes for first, second and third place finishers.

A poker run is a fundraising event where participants travel to five locations to receive a playing card. At the end of the run, the player with the best hand wins the grand prize.

At 8 p.m., the casino will give away a 2014 Vintage Chief Motorcycle. Players must swipe their rewards club card at the Wind River Hotel and Casino to be entered into the drawing. Extra entries will be given to players who use their rewards club card while playing their favorite slot machine or table game. Nine runner ups will receive $500. Hot seats also will be given out all weekend long.
