America’s Gaming & Gambling

American culture has long included gambling. The popularity and economic impact of gambling in Las Vegas have steadily increased since the 1930s. Casino patrons increasingly desire various forms of amusement in addition to visiting for a single day. Many patrons travel great distances for gambling vacations. As a result, many casinos now include concert halls, entertainment, spas, and other amenities to appeal to a wider audience.


Native American involvement in this industry

With the advent of other locales, particularly the quickly increasing resorts managed by the numerous Native American tribes, the traditional hubs of Las Vegas,  Reno, and Atlantic City have now been surpassed. The biggest marketplaces in the United States are:

  • Atlantic City
  • Las Vegas Strip
  • Detroit
  • New York 
  • Chicagoland, Illinois/Indiana


The gradual expansion of gambling and casinos across the United States is due in part to Native Americans’ involvement in this sector, but it is also due to the fact that many states have loosened casino regulations and legalized sports betting following the 2018 Supreme Court ruling in the New Jersey case of Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association.

This has resulted in the establishment of additional popular places including  The Poconos (PA),  Baltimore/Washington, D.C., Mississippi Gulf Coast, Philadelphia, Kansas City (Kan. and Mo.), and many more.
