There are many good places to play poker in Oklahoma. Being an avid player myself I have played in just about every poker room in the state. Here are my top three poker rooms that I have visited, and a little bit about why I like them.
Before proceeding with the list, it is important to mention that Oklahoma is right up there with Las Vegas when it comes to some of the best casinos that you can find only the former is a state so therefore it has numerous cities to match Vegas alongwith sites that have situs poker online for beginners. Keeping that in mind, here is my top 3 list:
- FireLake Grand Casino
This is the best poker room in the state to me and its not even close. Not only are the games pretty soft, there is lots of money on tables, especially on the weekends. The $1-2 no-limit game has a max buy-in of $500 which is much higher than most casinos in the state. This leads to some insane action. Now that they are almost done with their hotel I just see the games getting better. They also off the best comps for poker players. Just playing for an hour you get $1.25 in comp dollars which you can use at the sports grill, Ember’s Steakhouse or a Subway that is located in the casino.
- Choctaw Casino-Durant
Being a short drive from the Dallas area the Choctaw casino will get many players from that area. On the weekends it is not uncommon to have over 10 tables running at one time. They also have the best tournaments in the state. Their weekly tournaments are great and usually get over 100 runners on the weekends. The best thing time to be at Choctaw is in the winter months. They host the World Series of Poker Circuit and hundreds of players will make their way to Durant. The action is incredible and is a must for any serious poker player.
- Winstar World Casino
This casino and poker room has the same allure that Choctaw has. Being close to Dallas brings in tons of players looking for a little action. In my experience the staff in the poker room were somewhat less friendly, but as a whole the room is still great. It is definitely the largest poker room in state and for that matter the entire Midwest. They run the River Guaranteed Poker Series in the fall which pays out well over a million dollars every year in cash prizes. The main event winner almost gets a million to themselves. The tournament seems to be growing every year and if you’re a serious or recreational player it is something that you do not want to miss out on.
