Louisiana Loves its Casinos

Now this is a state where casinos are booming. Currently, there are 27 casinos; the largest of which is the Grand Casino Coushatta. With more than 3000 slot machines and 80 table games, this is the place to visit. The second largest is Harrah’s New Orleans Casino consisting of 2500 slots and 100 table games, perhaps even more popular considering its location. Gambling here was legalized in 1990s and thus, you will also find four tribal casinos, four para-mutual racinos, and 15 Riverboat casinos. One has to scratch their heads when it comes to poker, however. It is legal to play poker in licensed casinos; however, it is illegal to play poker online. Go figure! Moreover, online gambling in Louisiana is illegal. Contradictions abound in this state.
