King Pin Casino in The Bowler conducts charitable gambling for Plains Art Museum. The practice has been legal in North Dakota since 1977. In addition to a Pig Wheel and pull tabs there are 6 blackjack tables here. We also see the occasional poker tournament advertised.
Players can win up to $780 in a single spin of the wheel of fortune and up to $500 on a single pull tab. We aren’t sure about the table limits for blackjack and poker tournaments each have their own parameters.
In recent years they’ve been holding tournaments twice a year at the King Pin Casino so they do have a game on now and then. While reviewing the casino we found a “Gutter-Ball Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament” spanning a weekend with the first day offering $35 single table satellites with 2500 starting chips and the top 2 seats advancing to the main tournament. The other feeder tables for this tournament were at the Blue Wolf.
The next day we see $150 buy-in for 10,000 in chips and a one time option for a $10 add-on (5000 chips) and a $5,000 1st place prize (Based on 120 players).
