Indiana Casino Guide
Online Casinos in Indiana
Although Indiana has a long tradition with some great land-based casinos and a long history with gambling, it has not legalized online casinos. There have been discussions of legalizing online casinos, but it has not yet been approved by the senate.
Indiana does allow online sportsbooks, so it is hoped that online casinos will be legalized in the near future as well. At the time of writing, there is no pending legislation for legalizing online casinos.
But, you can still register with a legal online casino while you're in Illinois. 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 Indiana
There are three types of Indiana casinos: riverboat casinos, pari-mutuel casinos, and one Indian casino.
Riverboat Casinos in Indiana
In June 1993 Indiana became the sixth state to legalize riverboat gambling. All of the riverboat casinos in Indiana offer dockside gambling and, unless otherwise noted, are open 24 hours.
Pari-Mutuel Casinos in Indiana
In April 2007, the Indiana state legislature authorized the state’s two horse tracks (Hoosier Park and Indiana Grand) to have up to 2,000 electronic gaming machines.
There are no casinos in Indianapolis, but the two racetrack casinos are the closest casinos to Indianapolis. Indiana Grand Racing & Casino is about 30 miles southeast and Hoosier Park Racing & Casino is about 45 miles northeast.
Both casinos are open 24 hours.
Indian Casinos in Indiana
Indiana has one Indian casino (Four Winds Casino South Bend) which opened in early 2018. This casino only offers Class II gambling which consists of electronic gaming machines which look like slot machines, but are actually games of bingo and the spinning video reels are for “entertainment purposes only."
Options for Gambling in Indiana
Unless otherwise noted, all casinos offer blackjack, craps, roulette, slots, video poker, video keno, and Caribbean stud poker. In addition, some Indiana casinos offer the following games: baccarat, mini-baccarat, poker, pai gow poker, three card poker, Mississippi stud, pai gow, four card poker, Spanish 21, big-6 wheel and let it ride.
The payback percentages on electronic gaming machines at all Indiana casinos (riverboats and pari-mutuels) are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for all Indiana casinos.
NOTE: If you happen to win a jackpot of $1,200 or more in Indiana, the casino will withhold 3.4% of your winnings for the Indiana Department of Revenue. You may, however, be able to get some of that money refunded by filing a state income tax return. The $1,200 threshold also applies to any cash prizes won in casino drawings or tournaments.
Gambling Laws in Indiana
The minimum gambling age at Riverboat Casinos is 21.
The minimum age for pari-mutuel betting is 18.
If you want to order a drink while playing, be aware that state gaming regulations do not allow Indiana casinos to provide free alcoholic beverages.
