in the Mid West of the United States, Missouri
shares its borders with Tennessee, Illinois,
Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Iowa,
With a population approaching six million, and
an economy that is described as stable Missouri
earns its income from a combination of heavy
industry and agriculture.
The weather in Missouri is fairly typical of
that of the Mid West, with coldish winters and
summers that are both hot and humid.
Gambling is completely legal in Missouri and
there are a total of eleven casinos spread out
around the state, one each in all the major
cities, with Kansas City having two.
Basically the serenity and wide open spaces
that characterizes Missouri does not lend itself
to casino gambling, and most of the action is
spread around the major cities of St. Louis
and Kansas City
Despite the fact that there are not many casinos
in Missouri there are some pretty large ones.
The largest of them all is the Ameristar Casino
in St. Charles which is a bit of a block buster.
Eighty seven tables are available around the
clock, for lovers of blackjack, craps and roulette.
Poker is played there also, usually Texas hold’em
and some of the other traditional variations
like good old stud poker or three card.
Slots are aplenty at the Ameristar, more than
three thousand to be exact and they provide
a constant backdrop of sound in this spacious
and luxurious casino.
Restaurants and bars are open around the clock
for the convenience of the hungry and thirsty
gamblers, and the helpful and friendly staff
await your beck and call.
Setting the standard for casinos across the
United States is the Harrah group, and their
representatives in Missouri are no exception.
With a casino both in Kansas City and in St.
Louis, the highest standards of quality and
service, the most varied range of table games
possible as well as over two thousand slots
at both locations, have caused Harrah’s
casinos to become a must to visit, both for
the Oklahoman players as well as the many that
come from out of state.
Entertainment laid out at the Harrah is nothing
but the best, and they continue to prove that,
having earned their reputation as being amongst
the finest venues available for the discerning
Obviously big is beautiful in Missouri and that
certainly applies to their casinos. Although
there are not many in number, they make up for
that both in size and quality.
