Jackson Rancheria

Jackson Rancheria Poker Room has returned $20,000 back to players during the High Hand Tournaments that began in March. By the time the tournaments end in July, over $70,000 will have been awarded.

The next scheduled bi-weekly High Hand Tournaments are May 13 and 27, June 10 and 24, and July 8 and 22. The Finale Tournament, with a minimum $20,000 prize pool to be shared by 10 qualifiers, is set for July 29. All tournaments are at 10 a.m. See JacksonCasino. com for complete details.

The 24 hour non-smoking room recently opened on the casino floor in the new gaming area and features 10 tables, tableside food and beverage service, buy-ins as low as $50, limit and no-limit Hold’em, and more.

Two new restaurants are expected to open in the casino in May. Look for the return of the Lone Wolf Steakhouse & Lounge, with indoor and outdoor seating, a full oyster bar, plus a full bar with an extensive California wine list.

Also opening is the new Rancheria Buffet with six live-action cooking stations featuring a salad bar, Mexican, Italian, Asian and American stations, plus a full dessert station. Watch for special Mother’s Day and Father’s Day buffets.

Dreamcatcher’s Club members have three chances every week in May to win $1,000,000 during the May Millions promotion. Drawings are held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday in May. You get one entry for every 50 points earned on those days, and you earn 150 points for every hour of live poker play so it’s easy to get those entries. Play on Mondays and Thursdays for a chance to play a kiosk game for free slot play and additional entries for the million dollar drawings. Remember to show your Dreamcatcher’s Club card to the dealer when you buy in.
