California Online Poker

If you are looking for an online poker site to play Texas Hold’em and other poker games in California, options are currently quite limited.

California has had several legal bills introduced over the years to foster a regulated online poker market, with no effect thus far.

Efforts to legalize online poker in California began well before New Jersey, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Michigan & other states brought legal online poker to U.S citizens.

The absence of a regulated online poker industry in the statemeans that for now the only legal online poker options available to California players are social and sweepstakes poker sites.
