Kentucky Gaming

Source for Kentucky Gaming Information Header


This website is designed to offer you a considerable amount of insight into the state that probably carries the most prestige in at least one area of gaming (pari-mutuel wagering) and has brought about some of the most burning controversy as it concerns yet another area of gaming (online gambling).

Because of its relationship with the pari-mutuel industry, in fact, the state has become particularly unfriendly to encroachment, so much so that it conducted a seizure of domain names of some of the leading players in the online gambling industry. That is still a hot topic.

The possibilities in the Bluegrass State are still very much alive. Everything that is attached to those possibilities will be covered by the material you will read herein.
