Arkansas Review

Arkansas Casinos & Gambling: 2014

Currently, the only legal forms of gambling in the state of Arkansas are horse racing and greyhound dog racing as well as something known as "electronic games of skill". These games can be slots made by Bally or IGT, virtual blackjack, roulette, craps, or even electronic poker tables where the game is played normally, but the virtual cards are dealt to a personal monitor.

One of the only two places in Arkansas where any type gambling is legal, is in Hot Springs, AR, home of  Oaklawn Park Racing & Gaming.  If you're unfamiliar with Oaklawn, maybe the name Smarty Jones rings a bell.  This is the racetrack where Smarty Jones got his start.

There is also Southland Park Gaming & Racing in West Memphis, Arkansas. Thousands of Arkansas residents flock to pari-mutuel (Dog/horse races) facilities during racing season to gamble on their favorite horses, but some residents still crave more.  So with competition form neighboring states the legislature has allowed other forms of gambling and even extended casino hours. Southland is open 24 hours a day now.

Southland and Oaklawn are on opposite sides of the state with no legal action in between them.

Aside from these two venues, the closest gambling casinos for Arkansas residents are either in Mississippi or Oklahoma, depending on your location, a short drive from most parts of the state.  Many residents are arguing its pointless to not bring in gambling to the state because residents are already spending their money playing elsewhere.  The majority of Arkansas residents that enjoy gambling just end up contributing money to the neighboring states.  This is revenue that could be benefiting Arkansas instead of their neighbors.

Putting the direct revenue generated from the casinos aside, casinos could bring far more to Arkansas, indirectly.  By looking at the amount of tourism and people that Oaklawn brings to the state every year, we can get a good idea of how profitable casinos could be in other parts of the state.  By legalizing gambling in the state of Arkansas, the state can bring tourism to an all time high, offering even more entertainment for out-of-state visitors.
