INDIAN CASINOS IN IDAHO
All of the casinos in Idaho are affiliated with Indian Tribes. Currently, there are seven Idaho Indian casinos that offer electronic pull-tab machines and other video games. The machines don’t pay out in cash. Instead they print out a receipt which must be cashed by a floor attendant or taken to the cashier’s cage. Some Idaho casinos also offer bingo, off-track betting and poker. There are no Indian casinos in Idaho that offer live tables games, only electronic versions of table games such as: blackjack, craps, roulette and baccarat.
The terms of the compact between the tribes and the state do not require any minimum slot machine payback percentage that must be returned to the public.
All Idaho casinos are in somewhat remote areas and there are no casinos in Boise, Idaho. Also, there are no casinos in Idaho Falls. However, there are three Idaho casinos within a 60-mile drive south of that major city.
Four of the casinos in Idaho offer hotel lodging, while the other three only offer casino gambling. The Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort, in Worley, is the largest Idaho casino. It has a 300-room hotel, a spa, seven restaurants, and an 18-hole golf course, as well as a 100,000-square-foot casino.
The next largest casino in Idaho is the Fort Hall Casino, located in the southeast corner of the state, about 50 miles south of Idaho Falls. They have a 156-room hotel, four restaurants, a casino with over 900 video gaming machines, plus a bingo hall that operates five nights a week (Wednesday through Saturday).
The minimum gambling age at all Idaho casinos is 18, except for the Clearwater Casino where the gambling age is 21, and all casinos are open 24 hours. For more information on visiting Idaho casinos, or for general Idaho tourism information call (800) 635-7820 or visit: www.visitidaho.org
