Live Poker in New York

New York PokerThere are only a few live poker rooms in New York. They are located upstate and well away from the epicenter of the state, New York City. Turning Stone Casino in Verona is the largest housing 32 tables. Many “New Yorkers” travel to neighboring Connecticut or New Jersey for live poker action.

Online Poker Legislation

There is currently no legislation within the state of New York in regard to online poker. One could think that with neighboring New Jersey already regulating online gambling that New York would quickly follow, however that hasn’t been the case. Also, in the past, the state has even taken action against online poker players.

For now future regulation of online poker in New York State seems unlikely, however, poker legislation can change on a day to day basis – contact us by email if you see an update that should be made to this page or have difficulties getting online to play.
