So I asked the guy at my casino if I could create a list for 5 card draw since they'll allow "interest" lists for any approved game, and he said there are no draw games in Missouri, only stud and hold 'em games because in draw games you hold your cards off of the table and Missouri's commission considers that to be a security risk and prohibits that. So what's the nearest state to me that does have draw poker? Does Indiana do it? If not who all other than like Vegas or Atlantic City offers this game? I want to play it lol

You don't have to hold cards off table for draw games. Just watch episodes of 2-7 draw games. You can find some on YouTube.

Either way Missouri doesn't have any approved draw games, what are states that do?

They are legal in Nevada and CA. You will generally find them in mixed games, which include triple draw and so forth.

These games are not common. To my knowledge, they only occur at the higher stakes in California. I have seen them anywhere from 3/6 limit to 9/18 limit in Nevada (and also at high stakes). But they do not happen often. The most regular one is/was (IDK if it still goes) 9/18 at the Aria.

I'm pretty sure 5 card draw is not included. It's def. legal in California, as I used to see it listed as a possible game sometimes. I'm 99% sure it is also legal in nevada, but I've never seen it played in either place.

My understanding is, the weaker players have very little chance to win in 5 card draw, which is one reason it is so unpopular and higher variance games like triple draw are prefered.

Your best bet is to be in Vegas with a few friends and start an interest list with all your names. Then you might get a few bored locals to jump in with you and get a game going.

For real? Guess he was confused and meant to say PINNACLE doesn't do draw games or that they don't do them in their MO properties, that or that casino just doesn't have or want to create a set of rules for the reasons they described.

Most likely it was due to lack of interest from players and no dealers experienced in dealing the game.

Oh ok, it sounds like a fun game, anyway, I guess I'm still going to have to make my quest for a casual 5 card draw game elsewhere
