Some states have more casinos then you can shake a stick at. Others are almost completely devoid of the excitement of gambling and betting, watching the rise and fall of stakes, the thrill of throwing your money down. Georgia happens to be one of the states who chooses not to dip their fingers into the multi-billion dollar land based casino business.
When it comes to gambling Georgia has extremely strict laws that completely outlaw this activity within the state. Not only do they prohibit casinos they also do not allow betting on dog or horse races, dog fighting, chain letters, as well as pyramid clubs are also banned. Raffles are allowed as long as they benefit a charitable organization. Georgia does have a lottery within the state, with the profits compiled from it going to mostly education and scholarships. So if your are looking for casinos in the Peach state you will have to visit the water front and hop on a boat to enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of laying your money down and playing the stakes.
