Casinos are one of the biggest links to gambling for the state of Alabama. There are currently over 4.8 million people within the state, and they are catered for within 3 land-based casinos.
Alabama Online Casino Rule
There is no access to any online casinos within the state of Alabama. The state has actually been highly active in making sure that any illegal sites have been shut down. They carry out frequent raids on buildings that are thought to be connected with any illegal online casino activity.
Given that there is a land-based casino (below) there is hope for the online sector, however. There has been a number of attempts to try and get online regulated, but so far, they have failed. This is a similar story of AL sports betting, which remains unpermitted.
The hope comes in the form of the online horse racing being accepted and also online daily fantasy sports being accepted as well. They work differently to that of casino activity though, with a huge difference in terms of the skill to chance ratio with each.
Many people believe that they need to get a state lottery running before an online casino can be accepted. They are one of just six states that don’t allow lottery and this, at the minute, is a big stumbling block.
Retail Casinos in Alabama
Throughout the state of Alabama, there are three retails casinos that are currently in operation:
· Wind Creek Casino Atmore – 303 Poarch Road (includes over 1,600 slot machines)
· Wind Creek Casino Montgomery – 1801 Eddie Tullis Drive (includes over 2,100 slot machines)
· Wind Creek Casino Wetumpka – 100 Rover Oaks Drive (includes 2,500 slot machines)
The Alabama casinos are all run by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. They are one of 8 tribes that reside within the state, but they are the only ones with sovereignty there, so only they can legally run a casino.
All three of the locations are some of the best in the country. The Atmore casino is located to the south of the state, with the Montgomery and the Wetumpka casinos being more centrally based. Given that all three of the casinos offer alcohol, entrants must be aged 21 or older.
