We urge all of our players to never play with money that they cannot afford to lose. When our game is not fun, it is time to go see a movie... It costs a lot less and the poker game will always be here tomorrow. Do not push it when it is not your day. It is the nature of gambling that there will be streaks, both good and bad.
Most important to us is Game Quality. We consider this much more than simply a lot of action. We want our games to be a positive experience for all. We all know that all players cannot win all the time. We strive to keep our games cheerful and recreational even though we offer the highest limits in the area.
Our buy-in requirements for the larger games are five times the standard in the big cities. We do not want players at our casino that cannot afford to play.
Any kind of negative behavior is not tolerated at the table. Part of our mission statement is our employee's manual states, "We prefer to have one game of golden, happy customers than two games of problem customers."
If you can appreciate a game for true ladies and gentlemen; if you can appreciate a winning hand, even if it is your opponents, then come give us a visit... You will be happy that you did. Win, lose, or draw, you'll be treated with courtesy and most likely agree with the SLO county players that voted us, BEST OVERALL GAMING EXPERIENCE.
