In mid-1993 Arizona’s Governor Symington signed a compact with the state’s tribes that allowed them to offer slot machines on their reservations.
The compact originally didn’t allow for any table games but in early 2003 blackjack was added as a permissible table game.
Arizona tribes aren’t required to release information on their slot machine percentage paybacks, however, according to the Arizona Department of Gaming, the terms of the compact require each tribes’ machines to return the following minimum and maximum paybacks: video poker and video blackjack - 83% to 100%, slot machines - 80% to 100%, keno - 75% to 100%. Each tribe is free to set its machines to pay back anywhere within those limits.
All Arizona casinos have slots, video poker and video keno. Optional games include: blackjack (BJ), Spanish 21 (S21), let it ride (LIR), poker (P), live keno (K), and bingo (BG).
The minimum gambling age is 21 and all casinos are open 24 hours. For more information on visiting Arizona call the state’s Office of Tourism at (866) 275-5816 or visit their website at: www.azot.com
