Florida Poker
Starting in 2001, gamblers in the state of Florida have had the option of gambling via horse and race track betting. However, the gambling options were restricted and have certain set amounts for players to buy-in with. These restrictions were changed in 2010 to allow for more gaming options as well as the stakes were no longer capped. Expansion recently took place with live poker and the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation are now regulating these gaming options.

The state of Florida offers card rooms in twenty five different pari-mutuel facilities. There are tribal casinos in the state and some offer live poker options. Poker gaming has now expanded in this area of gaming as well.

On the home game front, players are able to enjoy poker from home. The game must take place at a home and players must play without paying a fee to play. Players are not allowed to profit unless they win the game. Players have to be 18 and winnings in one hand must not be over $10.

Online Poker in Florida
When it comes to online poker, the state of Florida does not have a law that does or does not allow internet poker. In 2011, the state saw a new bill introduced which would legalize online poker in the state but this bill died in committee. Since early 2013, there has been talk of a new internet poker bill in the works for the state but as of yet no bill has been released. It is believed that the state will enter the market once another large state such as California is in the mix or if federal legislation is passed.
