Due to the continued spread of the coronavirus, in mid-March casinos across the country closed nearly in unison resulting in an unprecedented shut-down of the gaming industry.

According to the American Gaming Association, as of June 12, 621 commercial and tribal casinos in 29 states have reopened. In other states, governments and sovereign tribal nations are making plans to reopen casinos.

Associate Publisher’s note: Due to the number of sovereign tribal nations and the often changing timeline of casino reopenings, states with both commercial and tribal casinos will only have tribal casinos marked as open or closed. Commercial casinos that “could possibly” or “may” reopen on a date are counted as indefinite until the government gives a reopening date.
