Unwrapped toy nets free poker at Dania tonight

The monthly Dan Le Batard Celebrity Poker Tournament is set for 8 p.m. Wednesday, and there's a twist: It'll be a free tournament, as long as patrons bring a toy.

The guarantee is $2,000.

Dania, the lone pari-mutuel in Broward County without slots, is again tinkering with its poker schedule in an attempt to draw a crowd.

The casino will offer a free-roll with a $500 guarantee at 1 p.m. Sunday; $10 tournaments with $1,500 guaranteed at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and at 1 p.m. Saturday; and $5 buy-ins with $500 guaranteed at 1 p.m. weekdays. Add-ons will apply.

The feature tournaments are a $40 buy-in with $5,000 guaranteed on Wednesday nights and a $105 with $10,000 guaranteed at 6:30 p.m. Fridays.

High hand stars at $100, requires only one card to qualify, and requires aces full of 10s or better. It increases $100 per hour. Royal flushes pay $250 every day.

There's free lunch from noon to 5 p.m. daily from a select menu, and free cocktails, beer, wine, bottled water and soda.
