Our Pennsylvania Blackjack Survey also covers variants offered in the state’s casinos.

There are 22 non-blackjack table games dealt at Pennsylvania’s casinos.

Every table game that we found in May 2021 is listed in our Pennsylvania Table Game Survey. Games include baccarat, craps, roulette, pai gow poker, pai gow tiles, Four Card Poker, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em.

The data includes the expected minimum bets and individual game details, like craps odds and the type of pai gow poker dealt.

We have a section dedicated to Pennsylvania poker rooms.

There are nine open Pennsylvania poker rooms. The most common game is no limit Texas hold’em. Pot limit Omaha and fixed limit hold’em are other games offered by Pennsylvania poker rooms.
