Wisconsin Casinos

Gambling has been legal in Wisconsin since 1988, when the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act required states to negotiate compacts for casinos with all Native American tribes who wanted to do so. In Wisconsin, eleven tribes took advantage of that offer, giving this state quite a number of Class III casinos.

In 1992, the state created the Office of Indian Gaming and Regulatory Compliance, a part of the Wisconsin Division of Gaming, and this agency now regulated casinos in this state.

Most casinos are open 24 hours a day in Wisconsin, and you must be 21 to gambling in these facilities. The gambling age for bingo is a bit lower at 18. You can find a wide variety of games in Wisconsin’s casinos, with the most popular being blackjack, slots, and video poker games. Casinos are required to pay out a minimum of 80% to winners, and they are audited regularly to ensure compliance with licensing standards.
