Florida Gambling Laws
The Florida gambling laws are long and somewhat complicated at times. For poker the rules are rather straight forward. "Whoever plays or engages in any game at cards" for money will be guilty of a second degree misdemeanor. That sounds bad, but luckily Florida is home to many great legal poker rooms.
Where to play live poker in Florida
There are some large poker rooms in the state of Florida. There is even more of them in the cruise ships circling Florida. The top poker rooms can be found inside the Miccosukee Casino, Seminole Hard Rock Casinos in Tampa, Coconut Creek and Immokalee. You can play Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha hi/lo and 7-Card Stud inside many of these casinos.
Poker sites accepting players from Florida
Ignition, America's Cardroom and Betonline.ag have the top three online poker rooms that accept players from Florida. The quality of poker rooms drops a lot after these three. So much so, that Ignition will have more players in a single tournament, then the rest of the poker rooms have combined playing inside their poker rooms.
