Colusa Casino sits approximately one hour north of vibrant Sacramento, California. Recent renovations to the establishment have added a hotel to the site as well as upgrades to the casino gaming area. The main attraction at this casino is the game of bingo. There is a large scale bingo hall dedicated to this popular game. Card players need not be discouraged however. There is still plenty of card gaming action that takes place at Colusa Casino.
Featured card games at the casino are No-limit and Limit Texas Hold ‘em. The No-limit Texas Holdem games offer 2/4 blinds with a $40 minimum to $400 maximum buy-in fee. Players should be prepared for an occasional extended wait time. This is to be expected when the gaming area only contains two to three active tables at any given time. Given this, the casino offers the option for players to place their names on a waiting list. When a seat at a table becomes available, the player name is announced over the loudspeaker.
For tables that contain six or more players, the rake amount is $3 + $1. Table of five or less players can ask for a reduced rake amount. This reduced amount is $2 + $1 and is taken after the flop occurs. Card tables conduct business with the help of Shufflemaster automatic shuffling machines. No post is required of first time players that elect to sit down at a table and play some cards.
