All around the world, Louisiana is known for its famous riverboat casinos. Ask any tourists, they will tell you how you need to experience gambling on a boat, it’s a must! Did you know that Louisiana was only the fourth state in the United States to approve the use of riverboat for gambling purposes? Indeed, only 15 boats are allowed to operate state wide. That way you won’t see any boat owners getting ideas of creating a casino of their own. Due to many regulations, those river boat casinos rarely set sails off the docks so don’t expect some aquatic creatures sightseeing because what you’ll probably see is the flashing lights of slot machines. These boats don’t close, you can enjoy playing at the games 24/7. Those casino boats will generally include a restaurant and a bar so you don’t have to leave the premise to fill your belly.
