California Casinos

Gambling in California was unregulated and dangerous until the state passed the 1984 Gaming Registration Act. The casino laws in this state were further tightened with the 1997 Gambling Control Act, and today, all casinos in California must be licensed under this law. This state also has card rooms, which are strictly regulated under California law.

Most California casinos are open 24 hours where the legal gambling age usually is 18 or 21 years of age.  Legally the California can offer electronic gaming machines, blackjack and other various house banked card games. The state is prohibited to offer player banked blackjack which is why casinos offer a version of black jack that is played to 22 instead of 21. The house takes a commission on these games anywhere from two to five percent of the total bet. 

The California tribes are not required to release their slot percentage paybacks and do not have minimum returns on their gaming machines.  In general you will find the following games in California casino: video poker, video keno, slots and other optional games such as blackjack, Caribbean Stud Poker, off track betting and baccarat.
