Game Rules

All controlled games and gaming activities, such as jackpots, bonuses and drawings must be approved in writing by the Division of Gambling Control and must comply with local gaming ordinances prior to the play at a licensed card room. Here you can find information regarding the process for Division approval of games and gaming activities, as well as the rules and collection rates for all games approved for play in California's card rooms.

View a listing of card rooms in California and links to their approved game rules and collection rates.

Note: The game rules and collection rates are displayed as submitted by the individual gambling establishment pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 19826 (AB 1489 - Chapter 598, Stats. of 2004). The web site is updated on a monthly basis to include additional or revised material received from each card room. The documents are not the product of the Division of Gambling Control. For the most current information, contact the individual card rooms directly.
