Casinos in Utah

Utah is a top destination for scenic trips past canyons and caves. Home to 5 impressive national parks Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Capitol Reef and Canyonlands, Utah offers travellers many rewarding experiences. Boasting high quality snow, Salt Lake City hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002.  It also draws a crowd of artists and critics for the Sundance Festival, originally founded by Robert Redford in 1981.  So there’s lots to do… but not for gambling fans. Unfortunately due to the conservative majority of the state, there are no casinos in Utah. In fact there isn’t any gambling of any kind! (at least not legally anyway). Read on to find your nearest options for casino gaming.
