The timeless appeal and cross-generational allure of Elvis Presley make it easy for USAOPOLY to put Elvis spins on games everyone knows and loves to play.
Following the successful releases of MONOPOLY®: Elvis, Elvis Trivia and Elvis Checkers, USAOPOLY unveils the new Elvis "Viva Las Vegas" Collector's Poker Set at the beloved Graceland Mansion in Memphis, Tennessee during Elvis Week, Monday, August 8 - Tuesday, August 16, 2005.
"Poker has this country all shook up," says John M. Davis, president of USAOPOLY. "Putting a Las Vegas Elvis twist on a classic game like poker is a natural fit."
What makes the Elvis "Viva Las Vegas" Poker Set so different is the inspiration behind the cool white case. It's designed to look like the famous jumpsuits Elvis wore during his legendary Vegas performances.
The beautiful red velvet interior holds 200 red, purple and white eight-gram clay chips embossed with Elvis' signature and two decks of high quality Elvis themed playing cards. Of course, each of the kings in each of the four suits has been transformed into Elvis (the one and only "King" of Rock & Roll) performing in concert in Las Vegas and on tour. Every element of the unique poker set is completely customized and authorized by Elvis Presley Enterprises.
The new Elvis "Viva Las Vegas" Poker Set will be available for purchase this month at Graceland and also online at ShopElvis.com.
Specialty stores such as Barnes & Noble, Hastings Entertainment and Tower ecords will also carry the collector's game this holiday.
