Prop Bets With Tony G, Daniel Negreanu, and More
Prop bet, also called a side bet, prop, or exotic, is a bet made on an outcome or a proposition. These can be anything from statistics and happenstance in a regular game to personal, one-of-a-kind bets.
Poker is a thoroughly entertaining game, from the suck-outs to the sick reads to the tournament bubble boys. But you know what’s really exciting? hk prize pros like Tony G and Daniel Negreanu making prop bets on any type of oddity to feed their action junkie instincts.
The play at the tables is clearly not enough to satisfy the impulse of these professional players, as there are hundreds of documented incidents (most hilarious) of prop bets ranging from marshmallow mouth stuffing to a prop bets championship title. Who wouldn’t want to see Tony G compete in a foot race with a professional basketball player running backwards? Or Gavin Smith stuff his face with marshmallows while Phil Laak keeps an eagle eye on the clock?
Bodog Deals Billionth Hand of Blackjack
Recently, Bodog Casino put itself in the record books by dealing its 1 billionth hand of blackjack, becoming the first online casino to achieve this amazing feat.
The billionth hand was dealt on Friday, March 4th at 7:17 PM GMT. Fortunately, for the person who was dealt the hand, Bodog was running a promotion. The promotion was awarding $1,000 to customers on every millionth hand and for the lucky 1,000,000,000th hand winner a chance to live like a billionaire with a trip to watch the Grand Prix aboard a private boat in Monaco or Turtle Island in Fiji.
The trip to Monaco includes much more than just the Grand Prix. The winner, if he/she chooses Monaco as the destination, will also receive fine dining and complimentary bar for two throughout the stay, professional hosts for their assistance and up to $2,500 per person to go towards the cost of your return flights.
The trip to Turtle Island is twice as long. An amazing 6 night accommodation at the Turtle Island resort in Fiji for the winner and a guest with fine dining and complimentary bar throughout the stay, full use of the island facilities including private beach and spa. Also unlimited activities including snorkeling, sunset cruise, a personal manager for assistance and more. This trip also offers $2,500 per person to go towards the cost of return flights. Both of these definitely sound like living like a billionaire! Personally, I’d make sure to take full advantage of the complimentary bar.
Casino manager of Bodog.com Casino, Mark Leighton, spoke a bit about the milestone. “There are several gaming sites who have dealt a billion poker hands, Bodog.com included, but to have dealt a billion blackjack hands is a very special milestone for the Bodog brand.”
