HUSTLER® Casino Details
Hustler Casino opened its doors in Gardena, California more than two decades ago on June 22, 2000, by the legendary Hustler Magazine founder Larry Flynt, an avid poker enthusiast, through his holding company El Dorado Enterprises Inc. and has quickly grown into one of the most popular places to play poker in California with the casino conveniently located just 15 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles.
Flynt purchased the site of the El Dorado club in 1998 before demolishing the facilities in order to fulfill his wishes of building an upscale casino designed to attract high-stakes players. The everyday player should also feel more than at home at the Hustler Club with many low buy-in games running around the clock. The casino undertook a major expansion in 2007 with the multiuse Crystal Room, which is used for hosting conferences and poker tournaments or for extra floor space on busy days.
In 2021, the SoCal card room launched the livestream cash game show, Hustler Casino Live, which blew up into a popular production within months.
In May 2022, HCL had grown so much that it attracted some of the biggest YouTube and Twitch celebrities such as MrBeast and Ninja for a game of high-stakes poker in what turned out to be one of the most epic and memorable poker livestreams in history.

The poker room has notoriously run some of the highest stakes games in the United States including a legendary $2,000/$4,000 with a $1,000 ante Stud game featuring a $200,000 minimum buy-in. Many legends have invested significant time at the casino including Phil Ivey, Ted Forrest, Barry Greenstein, and the late Chip Reese.

In addition, the daily tournaments are designed for lower-stakes players with buy-ins as low as $80 and the most one can spend is $140 including the optional add-on six days a week.
