The Cabaret Lounge at Soboba Casino Resort has been transformed into a playing field for cornhole players of all skill levels. The Soboba Cornhole Summer Series from July 12 through Aug. 16 will pit players, 21 years of age and older, against each other with 100% payouts each week.

Each Wednesday, from 7 to 10 p.m. players will be eligible to win the prize money available for this Game of Throws. There will be plenty of space and accommodations for spectators to cheer on their favorite players, adding to the excitement. Up to 128 players will be paired randomly based on a preliminary scoring round.

SCR Chief Marketing Officer Martin Moore said the series was created due to the demand for experiential activities and more social activities. “Cornhole is a game that provides both experiential and social aspects,” he said. “It’s a game that everyone can play, and it is a game that is growing exponentially in popularity throughout the country.”

Players must register online to reserve a spot and check in between 6:15-7 p.m. to play. If they do not show, their spot will be released and others may sign up at the event. Buy-in costs $15 and includes $5 free slot play and one raffle ticket. Drawings will be held after each weekly tournament at approximately 10 p.m. Winners must be present to win.

Soboba Casino Resort’s Cabaret Lounge takes the game of cornhole from the backyard to the bright lights as part of its six-week series.

The total weekly prize pool will be determined by the number of participants. There will also be a raffle for all players to have a chance at Free Slot Play at the end of the night. Each week three players will win either $100, $200 or $300 in Free Slot Play. The top three players will win a percentage of the prize money, which will be $1,920 if the maximum number of players participate. The first-place finisher will receive 50% of the money taken in, 30% will go to second place and 20% for the third-place winner.

Marketing Operations Manager Mario Ramos explained that the weekly tournament will follow the rules of the top-rated Switcholio format. This consists of a blind draw round robin in which players get a new partner for every game and get ranked on an individual basis. The organizer will use that leaderboard to recognize and reward the top finishers. All is done and managed through Scoreholio software.

Ramos said top players love Switcholio because they aren’t always paired with a newbie for every game every week. Second, because over the course of an evening they should be able to do better than an average player, earning themselves a higher spot on the leaderboard. If the organizer ranks the leaderboard by total points, without factoring for win/loss record, which is recommended, top players always have the opportunity to earn valuable points even if their partner can’t hit the board.

Players will compete on Wednesdays at SCR’s Cabaret Lounge to win cash prizes at the Soboba Cornhole Summer Series, starting July 12.

New players love Switcholio because it’s less intimidating than a regular blind draw and they don’t need to feel self-conscious or like they might be holding a better player back all night.

Tournament organizers love Switcholio because they never need to worry about making sure they have an even number of players for randomization or designating a “walker” that plays alone if they don’t. Organizers also love the fact that they can add players late, or let players take a break for a little while, and either way Scoreholio will automatically “catch them up.” Finally, if people leave early for whatever reason, they’re not leaving a partner in the lurch.

This is not a cumulative tournament. There will be top winners each week, although players are eligible to play more than one night. Everyone can play and anyone can win. It’s bound to be a “hole” lot of fun!
