Minimum Casino Gambling Age

Each state or province determines its own minimum age for casino gambling, however Native American casinos are exempt from state jurisdiction and can lower the minimum age to 18 under the Federal Indian Gaming and Regulatory Act.

Some states have 2 minimum ages (18 in some tribal casinos, 21 in others). This is typical in states that control alcohol licenses. For example, if a tribal casino serves alcohol on the gaming floor, the minimum gambling age is 21. If no alcohol is served, the minimum age can be 18.   United States  |  Canada
