TYPES OF CASINOS IN CALIFORNIA

All of the casinos in California are affiliated with Indian Tribes. These Indian casinos in California are legally allowed to offer electronic gaming machines, blackjack, and other house-banked card games. The games of craps and roulette are not permitted. However, some California casinos do offer modified versions of craps and roulette that are played with cards rather than dice or roulette wheels.

There are many California casinos with hotels and, at the bottom of this page, there is a link to all California casinos which you can use to see it the casino you want to visit has a hotel.

Most southern California casinos are rather large and the majority of them have hotels. The Indian casinos in northern California tend to be a bit smaller and many are located in more remote locations..

All of the casinos in California offer slot machines. However, be aware that the Indian casinos in California aren’t required to release information on their slot machine percentage paybacks and the state of California does not require any minimum returns.

The minimum gambling age is not uniform at all casinos in California; it is 21 at some casinos and 18 at others. Unless noted otherwise, all California casino are open 24 hours.

Although most of the casinos have toll-free numbers be aware that many of those numbers will only work for calls made within the state. Also, many of the California casinos are in out-of-the-way loca­tions, so it is advisable to call ahead for directions, especially if you will be driving at night.

California Card Room Casinos

Most California card rooms also offer some form of player-banked blackjack, but because they are prohibited by law from playing blackjack, the game is usually played to 22 rather than 21. Additionally, players must pay a commission to the house on every hand they play. The amount will vary depending on the rules of the house but, generally, it’s about two to five percent of the total amount bet. There are  about 90 card rooms in California and you can see a listing of them on at: http://www.cgcc.ca.gov
