    Minimum Age: 21?

    The Nevada Constitution still prohibits all lotteries except charity raffles. The enabling statute does not mention a minimum age for buying a raffle ticket. The age limit of 21 for casinos probably applies.

    Parimutuel Betting:

    Minimum Age: 21

    Almost complete prohibition for everyone under 21. Notice the statutory prohibition on "loitering" or allowing minors to pass through casinos. Also note that the minor is not allowed to collect; nothing is said to prevent casinos from keeping children's money, win or lose.

    A person under the age of 21 years shall not:

    Play, be allowed to play, place wagers at, or collect winnings from, whether personally or through an agent, any gambling game, slot machine, race book, sports pool or parimutuel operator.

    Loiter, or be permitted to loiter, in or about any room or premises wherein any licensed game, race book, sports pool or parimutuel wagering is operated or conducted.

    Be employed as a gaming employee except in a counting room. Any licensee, employee, dealer or other person who violates or permits the violation of any of the provisions of this section and any person, under 21 years of age, who violates any of the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor.

    Nevada Revised Statute 463.350.

    Casinos & Slotmachines:

    Minimum Age: 21

    See Parimutuel betting, above. There are many additional specific restrictions, all set at age 21. Nevada Revised Statute 129.130 prohibits gaming or employment in gaming of a person under 21. Section 205.460 makes it unlawful to allow a person under 21 to enter a gambling establishment or engage in gambling in a gambling establishment. Section 609.210 specifies that "every person who employs, or causes to be employed, exhibits or has in his custody for exhibition or employment, any minor, and every parent, relative, guardian, employer or other person having the care, custody, or control of any minor, who in any way procures or consents to the employment of the minor, in any area of a casino where there is gaming or where the sale of alcoholic beverages is the primary commercial activity unless the minor is in the casino area to provide entertainment pursuant to an employment contract, is guilty of a misdemeanor."

    Charity Betting & Pull Tabs:

    Minimum Age: 21?

    A question mark ("?") A number with a question mark means there is a state limit, but it is unclear whether it applies.

    It is 21 there I believe as I heard a movie actress on the Ellen Dejeneras show today say that she just turned 21 so she can now gamble in Las Vegas.

    Its 21 acoss the board in Vegas..

    How strict they enforce it will vary a great deal. Some places may card you right away if you look under 30 and will not even let you on the casino floor if you are under 21. Some places really could care less and may not even card someone who looks 16. But the legal age is indeed 21.

    You have to be 21 years old to gamble in Las Vegas. You can't even be near a slot machine or table game unless you are 21. If you try and sneak in, they will ask for your i.d.

    21 in Las Vegas, but 18 in many other places like Minnesota :)

  • It's 21 not like canada where it's 19

    Stick to playing on-line and practice as much as you can. Get some home poker tournaments running at someones house to practice playing at live tables, it's a hole new ball game on the felt.

    Generally 21 years old in the U.S. and 19 years old in Canada
