Minnesota Casinos


All Minnesota casinos are located on Indian reservations and under a compact reached with the state the only table games permitted are card games such as blackjack and poker. Additionally, the only kind of slot machines allowed at casinos in Minnesota are the electronic video variety. Therefore, you will not find any mechanical slots that have traditional reels – only video screens.

According to the terms of the compact between the state and the tribes, however, the minimum and maximum payouts for casinos in Minnesota are regulated as follows: video poker and video blackjack – 83% to 98%, slot machines – 80% to 95%, keno – 75% to 95%. Each tribe is free to set its machines to pay back anywhere within those limits and the tribes do not not release any information regarding their slot machine percentage paybacks.

Unlike the casinos in Minnesota, in many U.S. states the slot machine payback statistics for that particular state’s casinos are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for casinos in all U.S. states.

Unless otherwise noted, all casinos in Minnesota offer: video slots, video poker, video keno and blackjack. Optional games include: poker, Caribbean stud poker, pai gow poker, three-card poker, ultimate Texas hold’em, Mississippi stud, let it ride and bingo.

The hours of operation are listed for those Minnesota casinos that are not open on a 24-hour basis and the minimum gambling age is 18 at all casinos in Minnesota.
