Slot players in Missouri have plenty of options for places to play. All 13 Missouri riverboat casinos feature hundreds — sometimes thousands — of slot machines. Meanwhile, although online slots for real money aren’t available in the state, you can play slots online in Missouri at several social and sweepstakes casinos.
Here’s an overview of slot machines in Missouri, with a full rundown of where to find one-armed bandits and the many types of slot games available in the Show-Me State.
Are slot machines legal in Missouri?
Slots are among the games that Missouri’s many riverboat casinos can legally offer. The Missouri Gaming Commission has issued each of the state’s 13 casinos a license, and that license allows the properties to offer both slots and a wide selection of table games.
Note that slot machines are only legal in Missouri casinos. If you happen to encounter any in other locations, they are not legal, and the MGC does not regulate them.
Can I play online slots for real money in Missouri?
By contrast, online slots are not legal in Missouri. The state does not allow any online gambling for real money. That means that unlike other states like Pennsylvania or Michigan, where online gambling is legal, there are no real money online casinos operating in Missouri.
As Missouri lawmakers debate whether to legalize sports betting, including online sportsbooks, there has been some discussion of the possibility of legalizing other forms of gambling, as well. Lawmakers have even proposed legislation that would legalize online casinos in Missouri, although such efforts have failed to gain momentum.
Online slots at social and sweepstakes casinos in Missouri
Those in Missouri wanting to play slots online do have a legal option in the form of social and sweepstakes casinos. These sites invite players to play a variety of casino games. Slots are the featured game on all of these sites, although some also offer other games like blackjack and roulette.
These social and sweepstakes sites allow people to play slots using virtual currencies. There are also ways to play slot games for free, and in some cases even the chance to redeem winnings for cash prizes.
The most popular of these sites are Pulsz, Chumba Casino, LuckyLand Slots, and Funzpoints. Here’s a quick rundown of what each of these sites has to offer for slot players.
Pulsz is a fast-growing social casino that features more than 200 slots, with more becoming available each month. Operated by Yellow Social Interactive, Pulsz also offers blackjack, roulette, and a couple of other casino games.
Like at other sweepstakes-style casinos, the slots at Pulsz feature similar high-level animation, graphics, and sound as you’d find at real money online casinos in states that allow them. The titles are different, though many of the themes are familiar and resemble their online casino counterparts. Some favorites include The Legend of Shangri-La, Spiñata Grande, Coins of Egypt, Big Bass Bonanza and Disco Beats.
Operated by VGW Malta Limited, Chumba Casino is one of several sister sites. Chumba is an especially popular site in the US, offering more than 80 slot titles as well as blackjack, roulette, and video poker.
Chumba Casino produces many of its games “in-house,” meaning they are proprietary and unique to the site. Popular titles include Stampede Fury, Triple Double Fever, Lucky Charms, Reelin’ ’N’ Rockin’, and Celtic Goddess.
