There are close to 650,000 residents living in Alaska, which is the largest state in the U.S. There are at least 365,039,104 acres of land in Alaska, most of which is devoted to primitive, wilderness areas. Outdoors is an important aspect of Alaskan culture for this reason.
Indoor fun is not to be discounted in Alaska as its casinos provide quite a bit of entertainment around the state. Many of the Alaska casinos are owned and operated by Native American tribes and the casinos are spread out all over the entire state. It seems most offer a break from the outdoors for some fun and excitement inside.
While there may not be an abundance of Las Vegas-style casinos in Alaska, there are a number of medium-scale casinos specializing in games like bingo. Bingo is a low profile game perfectly complimenting the laid back attitude and vibe of both native Alaskans as well as the Alaska casinos. These casinos are just as much fun as their large-scale, flashy counterparts and perfect for the population of this large, but low-key, state.
