Chicago Casinos History

In 1990, the Riverboat Gambling Act legalized riverboat gambling in Illinois. The Act allows for riverboat gambling upon any water within or on the border of the State of Illinois, other than Lake Michigan. Chicago area riverboats are located on the Des Plaines, Fox, Illinois and Mississippi Rivers.

In 1993, Indiana legalized riverboat gambling. Indiana allows riverboat gambling on Lake Michigan and the Ohio River. Iowa legalized riverboat gambling in 1989. Each of these states prohibit boarding by any person under 21 years of age. Wagering must be cashless, so tokens and chips are used.

All of the Chicago casinos and gambling hosts offer slot and video machines with various levels of wagering. Table games typically include blackjack, poker, craps, roulette and baccarat. There are also a number of different virtual options, including playing black jack, slot machines and video poker.
