What we do

Come Play with Us

 

Lone Star Craps Players Association is considered the place to play and learn in a safe, risk free environment.  Members may participate in private social gatherings, parties, education seminars, tournaments and games held at local public venues.


We strictly follow the Gambling Laws of Texas.

What if the poker tournament or casino night is held in a private place?


Here is what the Attorney General of Texas has to say about playing casino games in our homes:


It is legal for individuals to play poker or other casino activities in a private place, defined as "a place to which the public does not have access." They can bet money and win money. However, all money must be redistributed to the participants. The "house" cannot keep a cut.  Texas Attorney General Statement
