Gambling and Gaming Law


A variety of federal and state laws govern the legality of gaming.  In Iowa alone, casino gaming occurs in twenty casinos licensed by the Racing and Gaming Commission and three tribal casinos. Approximately 2,400 licensed retail locations sell Iowa Lottery products throughout the state. Additionally, there are numerous entities authorized by permit to conduct social and charitable gaming and thousands of registered amusement devices regulated by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. 

Dickinson attorneys have successfully worked with both regulators and licensed entities on ensuring gaming activities within and outside the state of Iowa operate with integrity, and have been recognized for that work both within the state and on an international level.

Our attorneys understand the complexity of maintaining profitable and secure gaming operations, and can provide valuable assistance and advice on gambling and gaming law matters
