Artichoke Joes Casino Poker Room

Artichoke Joes is a family founded and owned California poker casino that originated back in 1916 as a popular pool parlor.

An exciting new feature to poker play at the casino is the introduction of lightning poker™ tables. This revolutionary game of poker takes the dealer out of the playing equation. In the dealer’s place is an electronic touch-screen presentation that serves in the same capacity as a traditional dealer. Players are seated around the table and rounds of poker are played utilizing a touch screen application. As a result, cards are dealt faster and deals are instantaneous.

The adrenaline builds with each round of play. The main game played here is a Texas hold ‘em split version. Traditional Texas hold em poker is available at standard live dealer tables. In May of 2008 a player was awarded $100,000 as a bad beat jackpot. There is a regular NL cash game that runs, with a minimum buyin of 100 dollars and blinds of 1-2-2.

Poker tournaments are held daily with a no limit Texas hold ‘em event each Sunday at 6:45 pm. There is a buy in fee of $40 plus entrance fee of $9 to play. This entitles players to $500 in chips. Re-buys are available for $20 to $500 limits. This earns a player an additional $500 in chips. There is a guaranteed cash prize of $3,000.
