Featuring a casino open 24 hours daily, including an always-open poker room, Bucky's & Yavapai Casino is a rarity in the realm of Arizona casinos. Most casino-resorts in the state have limited hours for the casino as a whole -- forget about a 24 hour poker room, at some times of the day you can't even find an open slot machine to play. The rarities don't stop there. Bucky's & Yavapai's poker room promises free lessons for beginners, at the individual or group level, and they will set up a tournament for your group or event free of charge. In a state where casino-resorts seem to be heavy on the resort and light on the casino, Bucky's is bucking the trend. Serious table gamers should consider Bucky's & Yavapai on their next trip to the Grand Canyon state.

The poker room at Bucky's & Yavapai plays straightforward poker -- Hold em, Omaha, and 7 card stud. Not mentioning how limiting this choice of games is would be as bad as overlooking the fact that 7 card is a game that is almost impossible to find in Arizona. In other words, for every down about Bucky's I can imagine an upside. This kind of optimism must be contagious, because it is the same kind exhibited by the hotel staff. When pressed on the lack of game variety in the poker room, a member of management asked me "what games (I) would like to see played (there)" and seemed genuinely interested in my response. So table gamers, back me up on this one. The poker room at Bucky's & Yavapai is one of the few available 24 hours a day, and the management seems genuinely interested in improving things further. Get out there, play the room, and talk to management. It seems they'll be more than happy to talk to you.
