Summer action hot at Capitol Casino

The poker action around Sacramento seems to slow down a bit during the summer months, what with the kids being out of school, people going on vacations to their favorite camping spot, or it being just too darn hot to leave the house. However, Capitol Casino is busier than it has been in years.

With the addition of two more gaming tables and a new state-of-the-art parking facility, Capitol Casino has seen an uptick in business for these hot summer months.

The poker room has been extremely busy with much to offer for any type of budget. $4/8 limit Hold’em, $4/8 Omaha, $6/12 Omaha, plus $1/3 and $2/$5 no-limit Hold’em are the anchors that assure customers they can pick and choose according to their skill level and budget.

Daily weekday tournaments start at $30 with one $30 add-on or re-buy. The prize pools regularly push the $4,000 threshold. The weekend events are a little stronger, starting at a $60 buy-in with one $50 add-on or re-buy on most Saturdays and Sundays.

The first Saturday of every month Capitol Casino offers a $100 buy-in tournament and the second Saturday of every month is the $220 Deep Stack event. Capitol Casino adds two seats to every weekday event with the winner receives a free $220 second Saturday entry and the runner up a free $100 first Saturday entry.

Bad beat jackpots in both Hold’em and Omaha hit quite often. On Aug. 15 customers rejoiced after they hit the jackpot in a $4/$8 limit game twice at the same table within a one hour time span.

They also have high hand bonuses three times daily and royal flush bonuses in both Hold’em and Omaha. You also receive $1 per hour with your Capitol Casino player’s rewards card. With football season comes quarterly high hand payouts on primetime NFL games. Come in to watch your favorite NFL team on one of their newly upgraded HDTVs with the NFL Sunday Ticket.

The $50,000 Thanksgiving Cash Giveaway is right around the corner— Nov. 19—so now is the time to get your raffle tickets when you have a qualifying full house in Hold’em, Omaha, or tournament play. Thirty-eight individual winners will be rewarded from $500 to $5,000, so don’t miss out on this fun-filled day.

The Dragon Room at Capitol Casino offers a trio of games for those that prefer to skip the poker grind. Blackjack, Baccarat and Pai-Gow poker are on the menu for those who enjoy this quick-action type of play.
