Land-based and online gaming products innovator Scientific Games Corporation is set to run its second annual Shuffle Master Classic event next month offering one lucky poker player the chance to walk away with $100,000 in cash.

Scientific Games Corporation stated that qualifiers for spots into the final of its Shuffle Master Classic will take place at 219 participating casinos across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and The Bahamas until August 31.

To secure a seat, players must hit a ‘classic hand’ on one of ten Shuffle Master proprietary table games encompassing Three Card Poker, Crazy 4 Poker, Four Card Poker, DJ Wild, Caribbean Stud Poker, Flushes Gone Wild, Let It Ride, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, Mississippi Stud and Texas Hold ‘Em Bonus. For Three Card Poker, a ‘classic hand’ is a six-card straight flush or a five-card royal flush in any of the other games.

Qualifiers will then travel to The Venetian Las Vegas for the September 26 Three Card Poker final offering a $250,000 prize pool to the top seven finishers embracing $100,000 for the ultimate champion.

“This innovative proprietary table games promotional event provides an exciting experience for players and offers a unique marketing opportunity for participating casinos,” said Roger Snow, Gaming Senior Vice President Of Table And Utility Products for Scientific Games Corporation.
