Stars Casino adds games & tourneys

With summer headed for the rearview mirror as we head into fall, Stars Casino in Tracy has positioned itself as the “adult playground.”

Not only can you play all of your favorite games like Blackjack 21, Pai Gow Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Three Card Poker, they recently added the very popular Spanish 21. Along with the new game come two weekly Spanish 21 tournaments, Tuesdays and Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. Entry is free with $320 added by Stars. They also offer the same tournament format for Pure 21 Blackjack on Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday.

For poker players they have created a new $1/1 blind no-limit Hold’em game, which features a $10 minimum buy-in. What began as a Sunday only game has turned into an everyday event. Starting at 11:00 a.m. (which coincides with their $80 for $50 promotion) players are able to maximize their dollars, play in a friendly and introductory type of game, and still compete for the $30,000 jackpot, all in a game with a $3 maximum collection.

Players often ask, “By playing the $1/1 can I still qualify for the $10K Freeroll?” Their answer is “Yes! Of course!” The $10K Freeroll will be held on Saturday, Oct 4. There is still plenty of time to get eligible, and all poker games can be played to qualify.

Their $2/4 no-limit Hold’em game has exploded in the last two months. Starting daily at 3:00 p.m., both of the $2/4 games often go well into the wee hours of the morning. If you’ve been itching to play a poker tournament, but can’t make it during the more standard tournament times, Stars Casino is starting a $1,000 guaranteed no limit Hold’em Graveyard Tournament.

Starting Saturdays at 4:30 a.m. with a $10 + $5 buy-in, the first one will be held on Sept. 13. Beginning Sept. 6, their Saturday tournament start time is changing from 2:30 p.m. to 10:30 a.m. This way if somebody plays the graveyard tournament, they can stay and play another tournament, right afterward.

Sunday’s tournament remains as a free buy-in with a $1,000 guarantee. Stars Casino’s unique Moonlight Patio Lounge is open from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Sing your lungs out with their Karaoke DJs and take advantage of food and drink specials too.

The other big news at Stars is their Mini Cooper giveaway on Dec. 6 (see floor for details). They will also be holding a LIPS (Ladies in Poker Series) event on Saturday, Nov. 8.
