Walk in to Stones Gambling Hall in Citrus Heights and it’s immediately clear that you’ve entered a totally new type of gaming entertainment establishment. From the fireplace that greets you, to the sleek bar and lounge at the back, Stones offers a first-class poker experience that is unique in the region.
This newly constructed gambling hall, located in the heart of Sacramento County, features two state-of-the-art cardrooms and a full-service restaurant and bar.
The centerpiece of Stones is the Poker Saloon. This action-packed poker room is custom designed for the discerning player. With 17 tables offering a variety of limit and no-limit games 24/7, The Saloon provides live action poker in a sophisticated setting.
For those who enjoy the adrenaline rush of tournament action, Stones offers daily, weekly, and monthly tournaments that are among the richest in the region. Though Stones has been described as “the ultimate man-cave,” the stylish smoke-free environment has a wide appeal, making it the perfect place for a couple’s night out.
In addition to the Poker Saloon, Stones also offers a second cardroom, The Tavern, with Blackjack, Baccarat, Pai Gow, and other select table games.
Stones burst onto the poker scene earlier this year with the inaugural $100,000 Stones Poker Classic—an instant hit with players in which more than $250,000 was given away. Stones has let it be known that a similar event is planned for this fall, so tournament players should be on the lookout for details coming soon.
In the meantime there’s plenty of tournament poker to play at Stones with tournaments at 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Beyond tournament play, Stones makes every hour at the table more valuable with daily promotions for live games. All summer long, you can get the edge and start with a bigger stack with the limit Hold’em Daily Chip Special, which gives you up to $60 in bonus chips for your money. Players can also cash in with these daily promotions:
- $5,000 Aces Full Hold’em Jackpot
- $200 and $300 Rack Attacks, four times daily
- $200 and $300 Aces Cracked, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
- Wheel spin giveaways at 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. with three winners every time
To make playing at Stones even more rewarding, Stones introduced the Stones Card. Signing up for the Stones Card is free. Card members earn points every time they play, then redeem their points for food and beverages while in play at the table, or directly at the full service restaurant on property, Sammy’s Restaurant+Bar.
The players menu makes dining tableside a real pleasure; the Wagyu Cheeseburger is a popular favorite. Players can also choose to use their points to purchase Sammy’s Gift Cards, which are as good as cash at Sammy’s. Plus, Stones Card members enjoy additional benefits, like special offers, invitations to members-only events, and advanced notification of promotions and tournaments.
Players can check their point balance in real time at the Stones Card kiosk in the cardroom. Stones is also planning to release an app, allowing players to check their account balance and access the poker waiting list at any time from their smartphone.
Adjacent to the Tavern you’ll find Sammy’s Restaurant+Bar. Recognized for its innovative, healthy global cuisine, Sammy’s offers menu selections made with local, organic and nutritionally balanced ingredients. Sammy’s at Stones Gambling Hall is the first Northern California location, featuring a modern touch on classic tavern fare, paired carefully with a local brew list and hand-crafted cocktails, making it an instant crowd favorite. With 40 big screen TVs, the Bar at Sammy’s has become a go-to spot for Sacramento football fans.
