Gambling rules in South Dakota

South Dakota has a lot of gambling options, and even though it is one of the states with the fewest people, commercial and Indian gambling still bring in a lot of money.

In 2018, South Dakotans spent more than $106 million on gambling and VLTs in Deadwood. This number is outstanding because the state only lets people bet up to $1,000. By far, slot machines are the most popular type of game in South Dakota.

In South Dakota, you must be at least 21 years old to gamble in Deadwood, commercial, and tribal casinos and you must be 18 years old to play the state or national lotteries or bet on horse races. Slot machines, blackjack, poker, roulette, craps, and keno are legal ways to gamble.

Even though the state has the same games as Las Vegas, there are strict rules about how the casinos should be run. For example, South Dakota is one of only a few states that has legalized gambling and set a limit on how much a player can bet.

No single bet can be worth more than $1,000. Honestly, this is a good bet and that as someone who has been gambling for years. Anything bigger is a lot more dangerous. So, you might be wondering how South Dakota's gambling laws got to be what they are now.

In 1989, SL ch 374, 5 made it legal for the city of Deadwood to have slots, craps, and roulette. In the same year, ch 374, 30 said you had to legally be at least 21 to gamble in South Dakota. If this law is broken, it is a Class 1 misdemeanor, and the gambling license of the place that did it could be taken away.

The state's gambling companies have to pay a 9 percent tax on the total amount they make from gambling. There is also a fee for a license stamp for each card or slot machine at a casino or a site that is not a casino. This fee has to be paid once a year and costs $2,000.

But before there were casinos in the state, there was the Lottery. Since 1986, when it was made official, the lottery has been going on. Lottery games come in the form of scratch-off tickets and video terminals.
