Poker Run 2020

WHAT IS THE POKER RUN?

Starting Saturday, April 11th and running through our release from Shelter In Place (SIP) we are engaging in a fun, virtual Poker Run game!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When you order wine from any of our participating wineries (see below for complete list), you will be given a random selection of specially-marked poker cards. Collect as many cards as you can (based on purchase amount – see below), then submit your best hand to us. We will be giving away weekly prizes based on the best poker hand submitted, and you can submit a new poker hand each week if you choose.

Cards can be earned based on purchases as follows:

    1. 1 - 5 bottles: 1 card
    2. 6 - 11 bottles: 2 cards
    3. 12 bottles +: 3 cards. 

You can only receive a maximum of three cards per winery.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY HAND?
This part is easy; take a picture of your "best poker hand" and submit it one of two ways:

  1. On Facebook by tagging @eldoradowines and using the hashtag #SIPPOKER.
  2. Don’t have Facebook? Not a problem, just click on this link to submit your hand!
  3. Submissions for the weekly contest are due by midnight on Sunday, with the first deadline being Sunday April 19th. We will announce the deadline for the overall grand prize once we know our release from quarantine date.

WHAT CAN I WIN?

Weekly Prize - each week the winning hand will receive two tickets to this year’s The Great Out There (if you already have tickets, we will award two tickets to WINEderlust.)

Overall Grand Prize – LIFETIME TICKETS FOR TWO TO PASSPORT TO THE GREAT OUT THERE!
The best overall hand at the end wins this prize. We have never given away a prize of this magnitude, and it potentially could have a value of thousands of dollars!

Please note: If there is a tie for the Grand Prize, the winner will be determined by random drawing, but the others will still get tickets to this year's event!
