Jack pot! Black Jack! Bingo! Those are just a few of the words that are likely to be heard Saturday at the Bridge City Community Center. Try your hand at poker, roulette or other games of chance as the Bridge City Chamber of Commerce hosts a night of casino fun.

“It’s a good opportunity for the Bridge City Community to have a fun night,” said Adrienne Colletti, committee chairman for the event.

“We’ve been planning for it about six months,” said Angela Beck, chamber director.

For only $15, guests receive $1500 of play money. Additional money can be purchased at $1 for $100 “funny money.” The cost for a couple is $25. Players must be age 21 and up.

Each person will also receive two drink tickets which can be redeemed for soda, water, beer or wine. Soda and water are also available for purchase, but not alcoholic beverages.

Games offered will be roulette, Bingo, slot machines, Black Jack and poker.

Music will be provided by DJ Greg Broussard of Basset Production.
