Heating up at Capitol Casino

The summer in Sacramento will be hot. That’s a sure thing. Another sure thing this summer is that Sacramento’s Capitol Casino will be busting with action, special events, and promotions.

The lineup this summer includes Summer Splash, a $5,000 Player Appreciation Limit Poker Tournament, the Third Annual 102.5 Live Celebrity Bounty Poker Tournament, and the ever-popular 2nd Saturday Deep Stack tournaments.

Summer Splash is a continuation of their popular poker promotion that gives patrons a chance to win one of 19 grand prizes on June 30 and one of 36 grand prizes on Sept. 15. Poker players with a Capitol Casino Rewards Card collect raffle tickets for a full-house or better in any of their Hold’em live games or even during tournaments. (See rules and restrictions at Capitol-Casino.com on the Promotions page.)

Some of the exciting grand prizes up for grabs include an Eastern Caribbean cruise for two, an Alaskan cruise for two, five home theater packages, iPads, Xboxes, with the top prize a 2012 Ford Focus. Plus a total of $28,000 in cash prizes will go to the lucky poker players randomly chosen on the drawing days.

Back by popular demand, Capitol Casino is holding Sacramento’s only limit Hold’em tournament on Aug. 25. However, you can’t buy your way into this event because it is a Player Appreciation Tournament with a $5,000 prize pool.

Players have just over 11 weeks (from June 15 to Aug. 25) to accumulate 110 hours of live cash-game play to qualify. There is even a bonus for those that play more—140 total hours qualifies you for a free add-on at the beginning of the tournament. If you like to play after midnight “double hours” will be awarded to those playing from 12:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Only the first 100 players who qualify and register are guaranteed a seat.

On July 28 Capitol Casino will host the third annual 102.5 Live Celebrity Bounty Tournament. Local radio DJs and on air personalities will be playing in the tournament with special bounties on them provided by CBS radio. In the past these prizes have included concert tickets, iPods, and HD radios. The entry fee will be $102 and early registration is highly encouraged because they sell out every year.
