Arizona Texas Holdem Card Rooms

Arizona Texas Hold'em Poker Rooms

Arizona is an excellent state for any Texas holdem poker player. Not only do you have plenty of poker rooms around the state, all of which are based on Native American land, but you're also near Las Vegas should you ever get the urge to head over the border and take a seat in the Aria or Bellagio.

Because of this proximity, you'll also find that most of the poker rooms in Arizona are like what they offer in Las Vegas, which is really a good thing as Las Vegas is the gold standard when it comes to running a seamless poker operation.

Most poker rooms offer tournament and cash games, and no limit holdem is still the most popular variant played here. Many casinos offer spread limit tables instead of no limit, however the spread is large enough to make it essentially a no limit game.

The best poker rooms in the state are based in Casino Del Sol, Harrah's, Fort McDowell, and Talking Stick. Talking Stick is the biggest and best room and this is where you'll find the most action in the state. Some of the smaller casinos only offer poker as an amenity, so don't expect anything too special.
