Wisconsin’s poker scene has been bustling throughout recent history and continues to thrive with around 10 casino poker rooms — many of which operate on Native American land. Wisconsin is the birthplace of World Series of Poker legend Phil Hellmuth, who began his career in Madison. The Heartland Poker Tour recognizes Wisconsin’s contribution by visiting every year. Hellmuth and other famous pros have been spotted at HPT Wisconsin and battle with local regulars for big winnings. Wisconsin also hosts The Mid-States Poker at Ho-Chunk Wisconsin Dells. In spite of such competitive tournament action, online play is not allowed by Wisconsin state regulations.
