Two Legal Casinos in Texas

The Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino operates in Eagle Pass, Texas. It is perhaps the largest one in the state with 2800 slots, 12 poker tables, poker tournaments, and Bingo. The Arkansas Queen is the second casino. How can slots operate in a state where traditional slots are illegal? The answer is a small loophole in the law. The slots in question are not the kind you would find in a Vegas casino, rather, they are not slot machines as we know them. Confusing? Yes. Other types of slots pay out less than $5. The only reason these two casinos exist is due to strict guidelines the casinos must follow.
