Adelaide has a rich poker history and was responsible for introducing Texas Hold’em to Australia’s shores more than twenty years ago. Adelaide is still regarded by many as the ‘Traditional Home of Australian Poker’.

Playing at The District Poker 

The District Poker is the largest and best known venue for poker in SA. Located on the north western corner of level 1 @ The District.

The District Poker offers two ways of playing poker – tournaments and ‘cash’ or ‘ring’ games. The basic difference between the two is that players may get up and leave a cash game anytime they like but will need to play a tournament out to a conclusion to win a prize.
