June 10, 2011: Sacramento Card Room Expansion-Goes Beyond City Limits
The City of Sacramento appears to be the testing ground for the expansion of its card room activity. Two clubs are proposing a “new business model” significantly expanding the scope of gambling in one location. Additionally, a new state regulation creates an opportunity to increase the number of card rooms in the city limits. These proposals generate an imbalance between the various vested gambling interests and the state’s current gambling policy that go far beyond the city limits of Sacramento.

The Card Room ballot measure would raise the cardroom tax rate on gross revenues from 13% to 15%, allow each cardroom to seek City approval to increase the number of tables from 40 to 49, remove the limit on the number of permissible card games by permitting any card game allowed under State law consistent with city regulations and increase the current $200 betting limit to that allowed under State law.
