Gambling In California

While many head to California for the beach life, there is also a lot for those who love to gamble. Casinos are literally all over. One of the more unique gambling options that California possesses are cruise ship casinos.

The Coral Princess sails from Santa Clarita. In addition to the fixed dining times that most cruises offer, the Coral Princess offers Anytime Dining. This means that guests can dine on gourmet food whenever and wherever they want. The onboard casino has plenty of slot machines as well as table games such as poker, blackjack, roulette and craps. After gambling for a few rounds, gentlemen can relax in Churchill’s, a cigar lounge and sports bar with satellite broadcasts of sporting events. Coral’s Lotus Bar is a spa that allows women to pamper themselves while their mates enjoy quality cigars. The Explorer’s Lounge is designed with the Far East in mind and features nightly live entertainment such as magicians, singers, cabaret acts, comedians and dancing. The Universe Lounge always has live bands for dancing. People who want to gamble and bring their kids along can send them to the Teen Center, which has Nintendo, big screen TVs, karaoke, games and juke boxes. The Coral Princess is owned by Princess Cruise lines and they also own several other similar casino ships. Crystal Cruises owns ships that sail from Los Angeles.

Traditional casinos can be found throughout the state. Many of the casinos in California are Native American casinos. One of the largest is Blue Lake Casino. One of its draws is that it offers tournaments seven days a week. There are also 700 slot machines and 16 gaming tables with different limits so that all levels can enjoy themselves. There is also a poker room with five tables, which offer varying types of poker and limits. Bingo lovers can play their favorite game almost every day of the week as well. Types of bingo and jackpots vary by day. The casino has three restaurants, one of which is an all-you-can-eat buffet and one of which is open 24 hours. The Blue Lake Casino boasts the best entertainment on the west coast with headline performers to DJ’s to karaoke. Special events such as charity tournaments and larger tournaments take place throughout the year.
