Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1What is the difference between a cardroom and a casino?

At Stones Casino, we often receive questions about the distinction between a cardroom and a traditional casino. Here's a breakdown:

A cardroom primarily offers card games like poker and related games such as blackjack and baccarat. These establishments focus on card-based games and do not have slot machines or other casino-style games like roulette or craps. Players compete against each other rather than the house.

On the other hand, a casino offers additional gaming options, including slot machines, table games, and sometimes even sports betting and entertainment facilities. In a casino, players can engage in a more diverse gaming experience that includes both card games and games of chance.

Stones Casino is a cardroom, specializing in card games and providing a unique and exciting poker experience for our patrons.
