High hands every 15 minutes at Mardi Gras

 The Big Easy Poker Room at Mardi Gras Casino is known for its easy-to-figure-out promotions.

In July, it's every 15 minutes all day, with the cash rolling over.

 They'll pay out $300 for $2-$5 no-limit or $3-$6 limit from noon to 10 p.m., and $200 for other games during those hours. It takes aces full to qualify and no cards in hand, but still with a 15-minute period there are some chances for that jackpot to climb.

 It's $100 from 10 a.m. to noon and 10 p.m. to midnight, and $50 from midnight to 2 a.m.

Now, if you're shopping for high hands, there's this to consider: $300 every 15 minutes is like $1,200 every hour, except divided among four players. So, while the number might not look as flashy, they are still handing out a lot of cash. (Of course, it's really our cash, and we can debate the merits of high hand promotions, but that's a horse that has done left the barn...)
