Nearly all of America's fifty states now have casinos or legal gambling of some form, either casinos (indian casinos or otherwise), pari-mutuel facilities, or at a minimum - a state "lotto" or lottery.
With the "re-birth" of poker in the United States - primarily the poker game "Texas Hold'em" we are even seeing poker tournaments at local bars across the U.S. We also see charity poker tournaments, home poker games and casinos ramping up their old poker rooms to some of the nicest poker rooms the world has seen all holding regular tournaments. All of this combined leaves a wealth of casinos and gambling establishments including riverboat casinos, indian or tribal casinos, pari-mutuel facilities: greyhounds, harness racing, horse tracks, etc, state lotteries, pull tabs, video poker parlors and more - all for the hard core U.S. gamblers, and American tourists traveling the nation. It seems America is the worlds gambling paradise.

American Casino History Prior to 1931, gambling in the United States was illegal. In 1931 Nevada re-legalized gambling in the state becoming the first state in the U.S.A. to re-legalize gambling. Throughout the United States that decade 21 states legalize racetracks. Low stakes bingo for charity becomes popular throughout the nation. Until then, gambling had been strictly prohibitied.
By the 1940's gambling in Las Vegas is a huge success and continues to thrive to this day, probably the most popular gambling destination in the world. New Jersey legalized gambling and the first casino opened in Atlantic City in 1978.
By 1987 the U.S. Supreme Court decision that states the right of Native American Indian tribes to regulate high stakes version of all casino games.
In 1988 South Dakota legalized gambling and in 1991 Colorado legalised gambling in three towns with Illinois riverboat casinos opening at the same time. Low stakes at first, but high stakes gambling followed.
