If you haven’t been to Las Vegas in awhile you may be surprised to know that the gambling mecca is a far cry from the quaint locales that populated the heyday of old west. But if you’re not willing to take the plunge into the wilds, there’s still a bit of Las Vegas to be found in your own backyard. This includes casinos in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. In fact, there are actually 14 commercial sportsbooks in the Old Dominion.
Those looking for a real life gaming experience can get in touch with one of the several licensed land casinos. Meanwhile, online gambling is legal in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. One of the many casinos in the area has even partnered with one of the best online casinos around. Whether you’re looking for table games or slots, the good news is you can count on a friendly face. And that’s a good thing, as the state has been in the casino business for over a century. The state also makes it easy to bet on your favorite team in the NFL or NCAA, if you’re into that sort of thing.
There’s a lot to be said for playing poker at a tribal casino, but if you’re willing to fork over the cash you can hit the tables at a few online sites as well.
