Playing at
the District

The District Poker is 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.
