Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

Minnesota is home to nearly 20 casinos, scattered throughout this great state and owned by various Native American tribes. But what you might not realize is that several of the state’s finest are within a short drive of the Twin Cities. Ranging in size from sprawling Vegas-style complexes to boutique hotels with a handful of blackjack tables and slots, there’s something to suit everyone's taste. You will also find two racetracks within driving distance of the metro, giving thrill-seekers a chance for live or simulcast betting.
