Virginia Poker & Casino Gambling

Today Virginia is one of the US’ fastest developing and happening states in the field of gambling. History of gambling in Virginia is very old and interesting; with the 1860s came the great mining excitement of the fabled Comstock Lode in Nevada because of which most of the gambling activity in the Comstock was centered in Virginia City and nearby satellite communities. As in San Francisco, gambling houses dominated the main streets of the new towns. At the height of the boom an agent of the U.S. Geological Survey, studying recreational opportunities in Virginia City, found that the town of 18,000 had a gambling house for every 150 inhabitants. The best known of the many resorts in Virginia City was the Gentry and Crittenden Gambling Saloon, which featured a no-limit faro table, presided over by the famous dealer Hamilton Baker. Other houses of notable popularity in the Virginia gambling circuit were Tom Peasley's Sazarac, the Delta Saloon, owned and operated by Jim Orndorff and Jack Magee and Tom Buckner's Sawdust Corner.
