Many people ask, “are casinos legal in Texas?” The short answer is yes. However, there are some details that must be included. They are only allowed if they are located on a boat and sail out to international waters or if they are located on federally recognized indian reservation. but even then, there is still some room for dispute.
The state is in a legal fight to try and shut down one of the two Texas casinos, Naskila Gaming, but it has not been successful and the casino is still open. However, be sure to call the casino ahead of time if planning a trip there.
Texas also has one casino boat, Jacks or Better Casino, which is based in Galveston. The boat sails nine miles out into the Gulf of Mexico where casino gambling is permitted. The boat offers: blackjack, craps, roulette, three card poker, a sports book, slots and video poker. You must provide a photo ID or you won’t be allowed to board. The minimum age for gambling on the boat is 18. If you are looking for Texas casinos near Houston this is your best bet. While Houston has no casinos, Jacks or Better Casino is only about an hour away.
