Idaho Casino Guide
Online Casinos in Idaho
Although Idaho has a long tradition with some great landbased casinos, it has not legalized online casinos. There appears to be little motion toward legalization at this point.
Idaho does have a state lottery, which can indicate an openness to other forms of betting.
The nearest state with online casinos happens to be Nevada, which offers some great poker through the World Series of Poker (WSOP) website and downloadable app.
But, you can still register with a legal online casino while you're in Idaho. That means you can get the casino's bonus offers or deposit, and then play whenever you're in states where it's legal (even in a layover at the airport). (Do be aware of the casino bonus's expiry date, though.)

Types of Casinos in Idaho
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.
Options For Gambling in Idaho
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).
Gambling Laws in Idaho
