From Miami Vice to Atlantic City Nice: Actor Don Johnson to Host Mega Blackjack Tournament at the Trop

So the Tropicana casino is bringing in actor Don Johnson (Miami Vice and many other TV shows) to host a mega blackjack tournament this coming Sept. 2-3.

That’s cool.

I loved Miami Vice and Johnson is an awesome actor.

But even more than that…I’ll be there for the play.

“We’re thrilled to have Don host our $100,000 Winner-Take-All Blackjack Tournament onSeptember 2 & 3,” said Tony Rodio, president and chief executive officer.

Johnson is a player, you see.

“Since winning over $5 million at one of our blackjack tables himself, Don has become a celebrity over night since his big wins in AC. Now our customers have the opportunity to meet and play with or against him in this tournament,” said Rodio.

By signing up for a free Diamond Club card on September 2 at the Promotions Booth, new club members will get a chance to play in Tropicana’s $100,000 Winner-Take-All Blackjack Tournament, an otherwise invitation-only event.

Here is how it will work…courtesy of a Trop press release package I received:

These new members and invited guests will participate in a “Ready, Set, Go Blackjack” qualifying round, that will take place from 5 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. on Friday, September 2.

The top seven scorers will then advance to the $100,000 Winner-Take-All Blackjack Tournament, which takes place at 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 3, along with 42 invited guests including Don Johnson and 7 qualifiers.

On September 2 at 3:00 PM, to thank the celebrity for making this appearance, Tropicana is donating $10,000 to Don Johnson’s favorite charity: the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation which supports innovative community efforts to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

Good cause.

So, I’ll see you there.
