Kansas City, Missouri is not the first city that comes to mind when thinking about legal gambling in the United States. The first cities that come to mind are Las Vegas, Reno, Atlantic City, and Biloxi. Unknown to many people outside the area, however, Kansas City has had legalized gambling since 1994, as long as it takes place on either the Mississippi or Missouri Rivers. While the intent of the law was for gambling to be held on traveling riverboats, the riverboats have since become fixed, semi-permanent structures attached to hotels, restaurants, and performing arts venues. Technically, though, they are on the water and not on the land.
