Kansas has a lot to offer land-based casino players. They’re something of a rarity in that they have both Native American and state-owned casinos. 

The casinos alongside a collection of nice hotels positioned primarily at the borders of the state calls to neighbors to come spend a few nights and enjoy some slots and games. 

Online Casinos in Kansas

Although Kansas has a long tradition with some great land-based casinos, it has not legalized online casinos. There appears to be little motion toward legalization at this point. However online sportsbooks have been approved in Kansas, so there is the hope that online casinos will soon follow. 

Kansas 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 Kansas. That means you can get the casino’s bonus offers or deposit, and then play whenever you’re in states where it’s legal. (Do be aware of the casino bonus’s expiry date, though.)
