Types of Casinos in Iowa
There are three types of casinos in Iowa: riverboat casinos, pari-mutuel (racetrack) casinos and Indian casinos.
Riverboat Casinos in Iowa
Iowa was the first state to legalize riverboat casino gambling. The riverboats began operating on April Fools Day in 1991 and passengers were originally limited to $5 per bet with a maximum loss of $200 per person, per cruise.
In early 1994 the Iowa legislature voted to eliminate those gambling restrictions. That same year the state also legalized casinos on moored barges that float in man-made basins of water and no longer required the casinos to be on boats. This allowed riverboat casinos to resemble land-based buildings.
As of mid-2018 there were 16 riverboat casinos in Iowa.
Pari-Mutuel (racetrack) Casinos in Iowa
Electronic gaming machines, such as slots and video poker, were legalized at three of the state’s pari-mutuel racetracks in 1994 and, in mid-2004, a provision was added to allow table games at those three tracks.
Indian Casinos in Iowa
There are three Indian casinos in Iowa and all of them offer electronic gaming machines, as well as table games. No public information is available concerning the payback percentages on gaming machines at Indian casinos in Iowa.
All Iowa casinos are open 24 hours and the minimum gambling age is 21, 18 for pari-mutuel wagering or bingo.
