Play Poker to Get Dinner on the HousePublished January 22, 2015
A London restaurant has offered customers the chance to win dinner for free by playing Poker hands after the meal.
PokerStars and Jones & Sons restaurants have started to offer a unique twist - play a hand of poker to determine if your meal with be free or a fraction of the price. After a meal, patrons have the option of playing their hand to determine if their meal will be on the house.
Play Poker - Win Free Dinner
Initially run at London restaurant The All-in Kitchen, a short-lived promotion to mark the Tour coming to the capital saw customers being able to play three hands of Poker to determine how much the bill for their meal will be. Once they have enjoyed the three-courses of delights such as Queen Scallops, King Crab Thermidor and roasts with a rosemary sauce, they are given the chance to have the bill ripped up. Each customer is given three hands of Poker to accumulate as many chips as possible.
Poker Chips Determine Price
Over 10,000 chips means that the meal will be on the house, while between 5,000 and 10,000 will cut the bill from an average of about £50, or $76, down to just £5. Less than 5,000 chips will result in a bill of just £10, although it isn't compulsory to play and the restaurant is open to regular paying customers as well.
The offer was short lived, and fully booked, but Jones & Sons have teamed up with PokerStars to bring similar poker themed events to cities along the route of the Tour. Anyone looking to experience these fun nights should visit the All-In Kitchen website where they can see where and when the nights take place and book their tables.
Andy Jones, founder of Jones & Sons said ''Having the opportunity to create a menu that combines two of my favourite things was something I jumped at. (Putting a poker theme) within the dishes was a lot of fun...I can't wait to see the results and serve up some Aces.''
