With more than a dozen casinos in Missouri, which are spread across ten cities, you won’t have difficulty playing your favorite casino games. The latest figures show that in total there are over 20,000 slot machines, 500 table games, and 100 poker tables. With a minimum bet of a penny up to $5000, there is no lack of enthusiasm when it comes to visiting the myriad of casinos. But here’s the rub; there are no racetracks or dog racing or even off track betting in the state. Two of the most well-known casinos are Ameristar Casino & Hotel in Kansas City, and the Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in St. Charles.
