South Carolina Casino Guide

Online Casinos in South Carolina

South Carolina is very against the idea of people playing at online casinos. The state isn't gambler friendly and has prohibited all forms of online gambling. Even on land, you will only find one venue to legally gamble at. 

Since the laws are extremely strict around online betting, it doesn't appear online casinos will ever exist legally in South Carolina. If you're found guilty of participating in any type of online game activity, you could be subject to a large fine and prison time. 

You can still play slots and casino games at a social online casino, but won’t be able to play for real money. Sometimes you can even find poker at the social casinos, but your choices will be very limited in South Carolina.
