Corey Novak Wins Main Event Seat as Scavenger Hunt Winner
Starting last night and going up until 1 p.m. today, players had the opportunity to participate in the RIU Reno VIII Scavenger Hunt.
In order to be entered into the drawing, players had to complete a set of tasks throughout the Peppermill Casino. They included play three hands of each of the blackjack, Ultimate Texas Hold'em, and Fortune Pai Gow Poker; place a bet at craps and roulette; and finally play two orbits in the poker room, place a sportsbook bet, purchase a keno ticket, and spend $10 at the RIU merch booth.
Three winners were selected with two players receiving a Nike PokerStars duffle bag and a $125 seat. Those went to Michael Holmes and Ryan Schoonbaert.
Up top awaiting the winner was a $600 Main Event seat, dinner at the steakhouse with 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Chris Moneymaker, and a PokerStars chip set. The final name pulled and the winner of the RIU Reno VIII Scavenger Hunt was Corey Novak, who let loose a "Let's go, baby," after his name was draw.
We'll see you in the Main Event Corey!
