2017 Travel Guide to California - - CASINOS -

Just be­cause Cal­i­for­nia has casinos doesn’t mean games there play the same way they’d play in Las Ve­gas or At­lantic City. Per­haps the big­gest dif­fer­ences: craps and roulette. State gam­ing laws ex­pressly pro­hibit the out­come of a game to be de­ter­mined by dice or a ball. While the games in­cor­po­rate tra­di­tional el­e­ments of dice and a ball, the games them­selves hinge on over­turn­ing dif­fer­ent types of cards. For novices (or those just look­ing for a good time), these dif­fer­ences are min­i­mal. For hard-core craps and roulette play­ers, how­ever, they make the games so for­eign that ad­just­ing be­comes tough. Ask the croupier to re­view the rules be­fore buy­ing-in. If a game seems con­fus­ing, don’t bother; there are dozens of other op­tions through­out the casino.
