I haven't been here for years. This was the first Indian casino in the Sacramento area that made it easier than driving to Reno or nv. My gambling carrer started when I was in grade school. Parents would drop me off with 5 bucks at the arcades, I loved SAMs town, they had unlimited motion theatre, mini gollf, but I would always want to play blackjack. During college I would go and play 1-2 dollar min blackjack and really score on the buffets. It wasn't until thunder valley opened in early 2000s and I went on my streak that hooked me for life. I was right out of college and would visit my parents that lived a few miles from thunder valley. My bank roll was 200, and for 7 days straight I'd walk out with over 500 profit. I quickly thought I was going to switch jobs. Good thing I was young and due to a short attention span I got busy with other things Fast forward to today. I'm in town since moving away for a work conference. This casino is PACKED, multiple tour bus companies from many surrounding cities come in. Ventilation is poor for being a large casino, I'd say Paris size. High limit had black jack. 6 deck shoe or double deck, 3:2, no surrender and hit soft 17, the double rules are fine. Bacarrat, but I didn't see anyone peel cards. Outside had either double deck 21, or cont shufflers 15 min, most tables busy Tons of paigow with fortune bet, tons of mini baccarat. I feel they have a lot of bj switch at least 6 tables. 2-3 fake roulette and one California craps. I played a variety in 1hr. Ran up 500 into 1400, but gave back 200 in gimmick games playing nickels. It was nice to scratch an itch while on a work trip and it brings back fond memories of my early gambling days.
