Cardrooms Deal
California a
Good Hand!

Our employees reflect California’s rich diversity. We are proud to generate tax revenues our communities use to fund community service and vital public safety programs.

The Economic Benefits From Cardrooms Are at Risk

The Tribal Sports Wagering Act on the November ballot imperils 32,000 living wage jobs around the state and hurts local governments that depend upon cardroom revenue to fund public safety.

The Act would authorize hundreds of frivolous law suits sponsored by tribes against businesses across the state, and deprive local communities of jobs and tax revenue. The Act authorizes sports wagering, craps and roulette for the tribes, who would pay no tax and without any benefit for the public at large.

Statewide Economic Benefit

Cardrooms throughout California provide the largest source of local tax revenue for their communities and support surrounding businesses and neighboring communities.

Our Cardrooms Are Lawful

Cardrooms have been authorized and approved by the Department of Justice since 1983. Nonetheless, the tribes who operate tribal casinos - that generate billions of dollars in revenue without paying tax - want to put smaller family owned communitry cardrooms out of business.

Cardroom Facts

California Cardrooms employ more than 23,000 individuals across the state and are under extensive regulatory scrutiny.


“The often-underserved population in my community relies heavily on the stability and security of revenue provided by cardrooms. We fund employment programs and nutrition programs for our youth, furnish meals to seniors in need and offer several successful substitutes to gang membership.”
“The scholarship programs supported by cardroom revenue gives many students in our communities a chance to complete their degrees. Cardrooms are an invaluable partner in their education.”
“Cardrooms contribute steady revenues, well-paying jobs and capital improvements to many communities in need of economic development. Without adequate funding, we will be forced to cut Section 8 programs and efforts to rehabilitate business and residences.”
