Dai Loy Gambling House Museum

Built in 1915 by Bing Lee, this gambling hall was in continuous operation until 1950 when the Sacramento County officials closed its doors. The name Dai Loy means ‘Big Welcome’ in Chinese. Pai Ngow, Fan Tan, and the Chinese lottery using 80 Chinese characters were the games of chance that were popular among Chinese gamblers. It is now restored as a museum with displays of the games and tables and Chinese artifacts as well as archival photographs from the Delta.
