Baha Mar Casino, "Junkanoo" Poker Deck by Uusi
An Uusi exclusive commission for Baha Mar Casino, "Junkanoo," is a playing card deck that pays homage to the storied folk festival of the same name held every year in the Bahamas by the local island residents.
Casinos are central to these Bahama residents' economy and identity whose imaginative reinventions on the playing card theme weave throughout the "Junkanoo" parade. Baha Mar is one of the largest casinos on Nassau's island and a thrilled supporter of the artistry that takes center stage in this exuberant, local festival. From the Junkanoo dancers and musicians' bold patterns and colorful costumes to the thrilling, larger-than-life floats, island pride comes together joyfully in this immersive, high-spirited celebration of the local island community.
This First Edition Junkanoo playing card deck was printed as a Limited Edition of 1000 decks for the High-rollers, friends, and patrons of the Baha Mar casino. The casino has graciously shared 225 of these unique decks with Uusi so we can make them available to our collectors, magicians, flourishers, poker players, and all who enjoy the artistry and beauty of rare, custom playing card decks.
"Junkanoo" playing cards reflect the beauty and creative abundance of this local community and truly embody the Baha Mar catchphrase, Life Spectacular. Enjoy!!
