All of the Montana casinos are Native American owned and operated, and while
they can't match the Vegas casinos, they are fun places to hang out if you're
looking to enjoy a little gaming action. If Montana gambling is something that
you want to add to your list of things
to do for your trip, there are casinos spread out across the land, so you
can choose accordingly. The casinos in Montana are relatively simple, as they
feature little more than machine games. Some have a restaurant and a bar to
offer, while a few also offer accommodations. You'll find Montana casinos near
all the top travel destinations, which includes some of the state's larger cities.
One of the largest concentrations of casinos in Montana can be found in and around Billings. The Billings Hotel and Convention Center is home to one of the city's most popular casinos. Known as the R-Club, this casino is open every night until 2 a.m., which is true of most of the Montana casinos. Video Poker and video Keno are among the highlights when it comes to testing your luck on the gaming machines here. On Friday nights, the R-Club hosts two comedians if you're up for a little laughter. There are 245 attractive rooms at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center, not to mention a good restaurant, so you might add it to your list of potential Billings hotels. Another fun casino in Billings can be found at the Shooters Sports Bar, Casino and Grille. As the name applies, there is also a sports bar here and a restaurant. When you're not watching the big game, playing pool, or enjoying a meal at Shooters, you can see if the casino's twenty video gaming machines are feeling friendly. As is the case at some of the other casinos in Montana, the Shooters casino features live poker if you prefer that to machine gaming.
Butte is another city in Montana where you can find casinos, and among them is Lucky Lil's, which also has a presence in Billings, Helena, and Kalispell, among other places. Lucky Lil's in Butte is open around the clock, so the gaming action doesn't have to end at 2 a.m. There are twenty video gaming machines here, as is the case at the Plaza Royale Casino in Butte, which is another top Butte gaming establishment. The Plaza Royale Casino also boasts a bar and a restaurant. As Montana gambling is mostly limited to video gaming machines, you can expect the other casinos in Butte, and across the state really, to feature little more in the way of gambling opportunities. That doesn't mean that you can't win a decent amount of money when enjoying a little Montana gambling. Hit these machines at the right time, or perhaps play the right hand, and you might be walking away with enough winnings to pay for your whole vacation. Even if you just win enough to fit in a round of Montana golf or an extra tour, then all the better.
Other top places to find a bunch of casinos in Montana is Kalispell, which boasts almost a dozen gaming establishments. There are a couple Lucky Lil's here, not to mention a couple Magic Diamonds. Like most of the Montana casinos, these establishments offer around twenty video gaming machines. If you're looking for a more complete casino in Kalispell, the Sawbuck Saloon is a good bet. In addition to the usual twenty video gaming machines, it also offers some table games. You can also grab a bite to eat at the Sawbuck Saloon, as there is an onsite restaurant. Just north in Whitefish, a couple of other casinos await you if you're up for exploring the area options a bit further. The Remington Casino in Whitefish is among the top places to enjoy some Montana gambling, as it features two poker rooms, as well as a restaurant.
Gambling in Montana might be relatively subdued, but it is there for those who are interested. When you're not enjoying some Montana gambling, chances are good that wherever you find yourself in the state, some enticing attractions aren't too far off. Butte and Billings are close to Paradise Valley, for instance, and you can enjoy plenty of outdoor activities in and around the area. For those visiting Kalispell and Whitefish, Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake will hopefully be on the agenda. The Montana casinos are always there when you're looking for a bit of a break from more touristy pursuits, so you might keep them in mind when making your vacation plans.
