List Rules Only casinos operated on Native American reservations

Love the thrill of Vegas but hate the heat? If you’re the type who loves the fun, entertainment, and great accommodations that most modern casinos offer, but aren't necessarily into braving the drunken masses of the Vegas strip, you're in luck! There are lots of good Indian casinos across America that offer the fun of gambling in more relaxed atmospheres. Native American tribes have the opportunity to build casinos on their reservations, even if gambling is not permitted in the rest of the state, because reservations are technically sovereign land. This list ranks the best Indian casinos, run by Native American Tribes who have mastered the art of making casinos and gambling fun for just about everyone.

Over the years, many Native American Nations have left behind the notion that casinos were nothing but a collection of slot machines. Now, many of them offer everything from world class entertainment venues to golf courses and water parks for the whole family. Some of the top Native American casinos you’ll find on the list also offer world class resorts with top of the line amenities that are never more than an elevator ride away after a long night at the blackjack tables. There are many great California Indian casinos, such as San Miguel, Pechanga, River Rock Casino, and Morongo, but other states like Oregon and Connecticut are home to famous Indian casinos as well.

So whether you’re into gaming or just looking for a cool place to vacation, check out this list to find some of the best Native American casinos out there. Vote up the top Indian casinos at which you've had the most fun, or add your favorite casino destination. With a great collection of gambling destinations from all over the United States, we’ve got everything from huge, multi-million dollar resorts to quiet, tucked-away places complete with a water park for the kids.
