Minimum Gambling Ages

Each state or province determines its own minimum age for gambling. Some have 2 minimum ages (18 in some casinos, 21 in others). This is typical in states with alcohol-licensed casinos.  If alcohol is served on the casino floor, the minimum age is 21.  If not, the minimum age is 18.
