Gambling is illegal in many USA States. I guess most States have their own State lottery but not all.
They have some strange laws in regards to gambling.
For example, some States allow gambling on WATER but not on the land.
Metropolis, Illinois, for example.......yes it is known as the home of Superman
the 'Merv Griffin RiverBoat Casino'. I've gone on that several times. You get on the boat and there is
three decks of gambling rooms with bars (booze). It stays out for 2 or 3 hours at a time. Gambling
does not start until the boat leaves the dock.
Tunica, Mississippi is a hot spot. There is casinos all along the river and various hotels.
Las Vega, Nevada, of course is the big one. Most everything is legal there. Sin City.
There is a lot of gambling in the USA but as I stated, with the exception of Nevada, most are on water
or near water.
