Stones GH: For those with a passion for poker

The minute you walk through the door, it’s immediately clear that Stones Gambling Hall has set the bar high by creating a 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. Open for just over a year, Stones is located in Sacramento County and features two state-of-the-art cardrooms and a full-service restaurant and bar.

The centerpiece of Stones is the Poker Saloon. This elegant, 17-table poker room was custom designed for the discerning player, providing great live action poker in a sophisticated setting. The Saloon has offered a variety of no-limit games around the clock since opening in 2014, and a recent commitment to limit games means you’ll now also find limit action at Stones 24/7.

For those who enjoy tournament action, Stones offers regularly scheduled tournaments—ranging from daily to quarterly “big events”—that are among the richest in the region. And 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 California Blackjack, Baccarat, Pai Gow and other select table games.

This fall, Stones will feature the $100,000 Limit Hold’em Live Game Poker Challenge. Running from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, this event rewards limit players for their time and skill at this finesse brand of poker. The top 40 qualifying players, who combine the most high hand wins with time at the table during the promotional period, will win their share of $100,000. It’s the first event of its kind in the region.

Along with large signature events, Stones offers a full schedule of smaller tournaments for players of all abilities. You’ll find daily tournaments at 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

As a player-focused cardroom, Stones makes every hour at the table more valuable with daily promotions for live games. Limit players can get the edge and start with a bigger stack with the Limit Hold’em Daily Chip Special which gives you up to 60% more chips for your money. Players can also cash in with these daily promotions:

  • $100 and $200 Rack Attacks, five times a day
  • $100 and $200 Aces Cracked, noon to 1 p.m., 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., and 1:00 to 2:00 a.m.
  • Royal Flush Wheel Spins around the clock
  • Double Points nightly

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 and gourmet pizzas are favorites. 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.
