Texas law not allow the running of commercial casinos. However, the Native American lands in Texas are not subject to the same strict gambling laws of the state. That said, there are only a very small number of casinos that are actually in operation on native land. At only one of these locations (Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino) will you be able to play poker. The rest featured only slot machines, mainly of the bingo variety. No sportsbooks are currently allowed to run, either, so if you are looking to place bets on the NFL the closet you will get is by taking part in a Daily Fantasy League.
The gambling laws in the the Lone Star State do allow for horse and dog racing and the placing of bets is allowed at the tracks, provided that is parimutuel wagering, with payouts coming for the large pool of all bets placed on a race. Presently there are three active tracks in the state, one of which (Retama Park in Selma) is owned by casino giants Penn National Gaming.
While the state runs an active lottery that also has access to the PowerBall millions, there are currently no options for residents to purchase tickets online.
Although every care has been taken into providing the information for this map, state law can often change and this map is how we at GamingUSA understand the gambling law in each state to be as of March 27th 2023
