While the Sahara Hotel and Casino might not be the newest or hottest place on the Strip but the poker room is a golden nugget. With huge crowds at the 7:00pm including quality players and a free dinner if you make first hour. I’ve won a couple times here over the last few years and it has been nothing but a blast.

The same dealers are always there and know what is going on (please tip them well). The 7pm and 11pm tournament cost $45 for 3,000 chips and you can do an additional buy in over first hour for $15 for an extra 2,000 chips. Don’t quote me on the addition buy but it’s something close to that.

The poker room is in a quiet corner of the casino with 15 tables for action. They also have some lower limit poker games going which you will find yourself waiting for on the weekends. There is a bad beat jackpot which is paid out to all the players in the room if it is hit. I really like some of the managers that run the room here and not so much a few other ones.
