Top 10 biggest poker clubs in the world
Poker is a game of small rooms. This is not slot machines which are stockpiled in the most casinos. Card games require com comfort and some atmosphere. That is not always the case. There are some giants, Walmart, Media Markt and Tesco of the poker world.
The casinos that will be mentioned are sorted by the number of tables – from the smaller number to the bigger one. This is the only condition. We don’t take into account stakes, no service level or placement. This rating is only about the size – the bigger, the better. By th way, the biggest poker rooms are usually first-class facilities. So there is a direct correlation between the size and the quality.
The most interesting part in this rating is where these biggest cardrooms are placed. 9 out of 10 are situated in the USA. The USA is the country with poker life concentrated in several cities. Online poker is illegal in almost all the states. Well, we know that Americans like everything gigantic like big cars, big houses, big dogs and… big poker rooms as well.
