Whether you’re a seasoned poker player or a non-poker player interested in a fun evening out with friends, there will be something for everyone. The Tropical Paradise Poker Tournament offers a variety of sponsorship packages and three different individual entry options – Standard Poker, High-Roller Poker, or Non-Poker – along with heavy hors d'oeuvres; cash bar; live entertainment; blackjack, roulette, craps tables, and slots; a raffle with great prizes; a liquor pull, and more!
