Almost all of the Floridian gambling facilities offer poker rooms, although they mostly tend to be on the small side. However, there is a total of 31 poker rooms in addition to Tribal Casinos and Cruise Casinos spread widely across the state, so while they may not be big in size, they certainly are pretty numerous and fairly easily accessible no matter what region of the state you are from.
You can play home poker games, though the provisions for social games are quite strict. In addition to the standard US-wide rules about nobody making a profit or rake from the games, there is a maximum win of $10 in place in the Sunshine State.
Of course, you can play many different types of poker (Casino Hold’em, Texas Hold’em, Caribbean Stud Poker, No Limit Hold’em etc.) perfectly legally and without fear of breaking the law at any one of Florida’s casinos and many poker rooms and card clubs.
