Online casinos 0

Wisconsin has a good selection of land-based casinos spread over the large, often snowy state. There are nearly two dozen Native American casinos, where you can play most of the major casino games. The state also offers pari-mutuel betting.

Online Casinos in Wisconsin

Online casinos are not legal in Wisconsin, but the state is still considered one of the more gambler-friendly states. If you’re an operator taking part in any online gambling business, you could be looking at serious consequences. Players, on the other hand, could receive a misdemeanor charge. 

This being said, there are still a lot of offshore casinos that accept players from Wisconsin. These casinos are not regulated and monitored by the government, which means there’s always the risk of losing your money. Play smart and cautiously. 

Wisconsin has the potential to legalize online gambling someday, however, we don’t believe it will be anytime soon.

Payouts at Casinos in Wisconsin

All casinos in Wisconsin are located on Indian reservations.

Unfortunately, if you are looking for the best casino payouts in Wisconsin, the Tribes are not required to release information on the slot machine percentage paybacks at their casinos, but according to the terms of the compact between the state and the Tribes “for games not affected by player skill, such as slot machines, the machine is required to return a minimum of 80% and a maximum of 100% of the amount wagered.”

Unlike the casinos in Wisconsin, in many states, the slot machine payback statistics for that particular state’s casinos are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for casinos in all U.S. states.

History of Gambling in Wisconsin

Wisconsin has slowly warmed up to various forms of gambling since the mid-1960s. In the early 1990s tribal casinos were legalized, and they were allowed to expand about a decade later.

Timeline of Gambling

  • 1965 – Sweepstakes legalized
  • 1973 – Charitable bingo legalized
  • 1977 – Raffles legalized
  • 1987 – Lottery and pari-mutuel legalized
  • 1991 – Class III gaming compacts negotiated with 11 Indian Tribes. Eventually 22 casinos formed
  • 2003 – Renegotiated compacts allow tribal casinos right to expand, run 24-hours a day, and expand game variety

Gambling Laws and Regulatory Organizations in Wisconsin

Gambling Laws

Unless otherwise noted, all Wisconsin casinos are open 24 hours and the minimum gambling age is 21 (unless you want to play bingo in Wisconsin, then it is 18).

Regulatory Organizations

Gambling In Wisconsin Today

Given the number of land-based casinos and the popularity of sports, the prominent question is, “Will online betting become legal in Wisconsin?” At the moment, there is no serious talk of moving legislation in that direction. 

However, as Wisconsin will now be losing money to online gamblers in nearby states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, there may be pressure to reconsider.
