Relevant Legal Statutes on Gambling in Kansas
The minimum legal gambling age in Kansas depends upon the gambling activity:
- Land-Based Casinos: 21
- Poker Rooms: 21
- Bingo: 18
- Lottery: 18
- Pari-Mutuel Wagering: 18
The Kansas legislature approved charitable and social gaming in 1974, followed in 1978 by both pari-mutuel racetracks and a state lottery. State licenses for pari-mutuel facilities ended in 2008.
In 1995, negotiations led to a state-tribal compact for the establishment of four American Indian tribal casinos. This quickly led to the state licensing four commercial casinos.
In 2008, the Wyandotte Nation, a federally recognized tribe in Oklahoma, opened a tribal casino in downtown Kansas City after more than a decade of litigation.

In Kansas, it is legal to own a slot machine privately if manufactured before 1950.
Gaming Control Board in Kansas
The Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission (KRGC) regulates commercial gaming with primary responsibilities centering on the four state-run commercial casinos in Kansas.
The Kansas State Gaming Agency is a separate agency which provides oversight of the tribal-state gaming compacts for the six tribal casinos in Kansas. Its authority for this enforcement role comes through the Tribal Gaming Oversight Act.
Further, each federally recognized American Indian tribe with a negotiated and approved tribal-state gaming compact also has a tribal gaming commission. Each commission regulates tribal gaming operations at a single tribal casino.

Theoretical Payouts and Return Statistics in Kansas
The minimum theoretical payout limit for commercial casinos is 87%.
The KRGC provides monthly revenue reports for the four state-owned casinos. However, there is insufficient information to determine player win percentages from these return statistics. Specifically, these reports do not show the amount won by players.
The minimum theoretical payout limit for all tribal casinos except 7th Street Casino is 80%. This limit is in the Electronic Gaming Devices Technical Standards associated with each tribal-state gaming compact in sub-section “Software Requirements for Percentage Payouts”.
