The most populous state in the U.S.A. is also swimming with poker rooms. The largest of these are the Commerce Casino and the Bicycle Casino, with more than 200 and more than 100 poker tables, respectively. Away from these behemoths, independent card rooms and poker venues are common throughout every well-populated area of the state. Online poker is not yet legal within California, although activists and major companies continue to lobby legislators to make this happen. The state’s land-based casinos pay out in excess of $500 million to players every single year, giving some indication of the raw strength and potential of the area’s poker economy.
