There are three forms of legal gambling in Oregon, the Oregon Lottery, Oregon's Tribal Casinos, and social gambling, such as bingo halls and poker rooms that have opened under county specific social gambling laws.
Oregon voted to continue the tribal casino monopoly that we currently have within the state. We will be getting a new casino however, as the Coquille Indian tribe intends to open Oregon's newest casino in Medford.
In addition to the Bingo halls, which are required to give some of their proceeds to charity Oregon features 7 tribal casinos all operated by Native American Indian tribes.
As we mentioned above, all of the casinos in Oregon are owned and/or operated by Native American tribes. For information about the Native American Indian tribes behind each casino, click the casino review page.
Spirit Mountain Casino
This casino really is located pretty much in the middle of nowhere. If there were no casino in town, well, there wouldn't be much at all. As luck would have it though, Grande Ronde Oregon is home to the biggest, and most beautiful of all Oregon Casinos.
Spirit Mountain Casino in Oregon offers a vast selection of table games, slot machines, and video poker games, in addition to the largest poker room in Oregon.
Accommodations at Spirit Mountain Casino include a hotel, as well as an R.V. Park. The casino also features Play World and an Arcade for the kiddo's, and a newly built auditorium for shows.
Chinook Winds Casino
Tribes of the Siletz
Lincoln City - Oregon Coast
Oregon also features a casino set right on the beautiful Pacific Ocean, Chinook Winds Casino. Chinook Winds is a beautiful place, the suites off the ocean are to die for. If you're not looking to stay right at the casino, you might check out another hotel in Lincoln City, near the casino.
This casino sits on prime Oregon coastal real estate. In fact, one is left to wonder why there are so few windows on the inside of the casino that rests on the crest of the ocean, perhaps the casino does not want the waves luring the players outside to play. The moment you make the turn from Logan Street, or Highway 101 onto the casino's street, you'll feel your breath catch, as your eyes feast on the casino resting just in front of the breathtaking Pacific.
Whichever way you decide to travel to Chinook Winds, you're surrounded by nature. Green trees, farms, mountains, and of course if you're traveling on highway 101, the Pacific Ocean.
Kahneetah Casino closed down during 2012, however, the water park is still a happening place to visit in the Oregon Desert area. During the colder months, for those that prefer a warmer climate, something in the Oregon Desert perhaps? You'll want to check out Kah Nee Ta. Even though the Kah Ne Tah casino is no more, the Water park and lodge is nestled amidst desert land in what looks to be a fairly deserted parcel of tribal land in Oregon. In contrast to the casino's located near the western coast in Oregon, Kahneetah is surrounded by gorgeous landscapes of rich red mountains.
The home of what used to be known as Kah Nee Ta casino is still , Central Oregon's #1 Resort and as such is a great summer destination, due to the awesome water park right and the spa.
