Vermont

Few states in the United States offer less legal gaming options than the state of Vermont. With no casinos, no poker rooms, and no race tracks, Vermont residents that want to gamble legally are forced to either visit a neighboring state or play the Vermont Lottery.

New Mexico

For nearly 20 years residents and visitors of New Mexico have had the chance to play casino style gaming thanks to the state's compacts with tribal gaming in the area. Tribal casinos joined horse racing as another popular form of gambling in the state.

Sports bettors and poker players are left with fairly limited options in New Mexico, and by the letter of the law any bet placed outside of regulated casinos is illegal. But with no specific laws about internet gaming on the books and lack of enforcement against placing bets, many residents opt to play online at offshore locations.

Maine

For gamblers in the state of Maine, options are fairly limited. Only two live casinos are open across the state and only one of them has a poker room. Two harness race tracks are also available, as well as some high stakes bingo rooms on tribal lands.

The limited gaming options, especially for sports bettors and poker players, leads many residents of Maine to look to offshore casinos to place wagers online. There are no laws on the books against online gambling in Maine, though the act could fall under the state's somewhat unclear law against gambling.

Delaware

Outside of Nevada, things don't get much better for bettors in the United States than they do in Delaware. Delaware has casino gambling, live racing, live poker, and even a legal variation of sports betting in the form of NFL parlay cards. The state is one of the most gambling-friendly states in the entire country.

Alaska

Betting and Alaska do not go together at all. The state offers virtually nothing when it comes to gaming; there are no casinos, no poker rooms, no horse racing venues, and not even a state lottery. A couple of bingo rooms, pull-tab cards and oddball charity wagers are the closest Alaska residents will get to live betting action.

Wyoming

Gambling in Wyoming is limited to three state-licensed tribal casinos that offer slots and other gaming machines plus some table games like blackjack and poker. Betting on horse, harness and dog racing and charitable gaming including bingo and raffles are also allowed.

Montana

Betting in Montana is legal for those 18 years and older who visit one of the state’s tribal casinos, which offer video gaming machines like slots and poker plus table games such as blackjack, craps and roulette. Other legal activities include betting on licensed horse and dog races along with parimutuel wagering, video poker and keno with a liquor license and charitable gaming including bingo and raffles.

Idaho

Betting in Idaho is limited to seven tribal casinos that have gaming machines such as slots, video poker and blackjack plus bingo. In addition, the state also allows betting on horse and dog racing plus parimutuel wagering and charitable gaming including the lottery.

West Virginia

Gambling in West Virginia includes five casinos with state-owned table games along with two operating horse and dog tracks. The casinos were legalized in 1994 and are primarily known as “racinos” where video lottery games are located at parimutuel horse and dog tracks. In addition, West Virginia has a lottery and allows charitable gambling such as bingo and raffles.

South Dakota

Legal gambling in South Dakota can be found in tribal casinos along with others in the famous city of Deadwood. Gamblers there have a variety of options from slots to table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette and poker. In addition, the state has a self-funded lottery and also allows betting on licensed horse and dog racing plus charitable gaming like bingo.
