Boulder Station is owned by Station Casinos.  It spreads 11 tables in an enclosed area by the sports book.  There are only two walls in the poker room.  The other two sections are separated by glass.  The Boulder Station poker room banned smoking in 2013, making it the second-to-last poker room in Las Vegas to do so.  Arizona Charlie’s on Decatur is the only poker room in Las Vegas that still allows smoking at the tables.

Boulder Station Cash Games

Boulder Station is the home of Omaha High in Las Vegas.  It is spread at $4/$8 limits.  The game plays much bigger than a standard $4/$8 limit game does.  There is always thousands of dollars in chips on the table and the average pot can run well over $100.  It is easily the wildest limit game in Las Vegas.  Players will often need the nuts to win and expect raises on previous streets while trying to make it.  This game runs 24 hours a day.

Players will often find $2/$4 and $4/$8 Limit Hold’em 24 hours a day.  There may be a single $1/$2 No Limit Hold’em game during peak hours with buyins of $50-$300.  There is a special $1-$6 Seven Card Stud spread limit game on Thursdays at 3pm.

Boulder Station Tournaments

Boulder Station does not spread any tournaments.  Sam’s Town is located just south of it and spreads three tournaments each day.

Hold’em Bad Beat Jackpot

There is a bad beat jackpot in Texas Hold’em that pays $40,000 to the loser, $20,000 to the winner, and $1,000 to every player at the table at the time the hand hits.  The qualifying jackpot hand starts at aces and lowers one notch until it hits.  Quads must use pocket pairs.  Straight and royal flushes must use both hole cards.

Texas Hold’em players win high hand bonuses for four of a kind and better.  The jackpots start at $20 and increase until hit.  Four of a kind requires a pocket pair.  Straight and royal flushes must use both hole cards.  On Monday and Thursday, there is a $500 bonus for flopping quads with a pocket pair.

Omaha Players Get Separate Jackpot

Omaha players have a separate bad beat jackpot.  A player that loses four of a kind jacks or better releases it.  Quads require a pocket pair.

Environment

The crowd at Boulder Station is working class.  The games are looser than most locals casinos, especially the wild Omaha game.  The dealers are competent.  On the other hand, we have had trouble with unhelpful floor people.  The Bravo Poker system is used to track waitlists and player comps.
