South Dakota Casinos 2021Commercial Content | 21+ | T&Cs Apply
South Dakota has a long history of gambling. South Dakota casinos and gambling parlors were among the first establishments to crop up in fledgling towns like Deadwood which boomed in the 1870s.
Gambling flourished throughout the state until the 1950s when those darn buzzkill lawmakers decided to clamp down on it. It took until 1986 for the Dakota Lottery to appear.
In 1989, limited casino gambling reappeared in historic Deadwood. Then, in the early 1990s, the state and the state’s tribes came to an agreement that allowed Native American casinos to operate.
Things have evolved even more in the past couple of decades. Now, the state boasts a mix of tribal and commercial casinos. While the majority are located in Deadwood, there are many other casino resorts spread out across the state.
These establishments offer a limited selection of casino games, loads of fine dining, and world-class entertainment. You’ll find almost any amenity and luxury you’d find in a Las Vegas casino resort.
South Dakota Casino Rules
The casino gambling rules are a little outdated. Most South Dakota casinos have slots, blackjack, casino poker games, and live poker. Casino gambling aficionados will be disappointed with no roulette, craps, video poker, keno, or bingo in the casinos outside of Deadwood and tribal casinos. Another thing you won’t find in any South Dakota casino is a sportsbook. Furthermore, the online casinos are also not an option.
Despite so many other states introducing legalized sports betting, South Dakota hasn’t made the move. There seems to be some hope that this will change in 2020. You might see sportsbooks in South Dakota casinos, but that’s the only place you’ll likely find them. Even if the state allows sports betting, they don’t appear to support online casinos or betting of any kind.
In South Dakota, anyone who enters a casino must be at least 21. Anyone who wins more than $600 must declare their winning on their income tax. 25% of any winnings over $5,000 are automatically withheld by the cashier.
