Laws in the Land of 10,000 Lakes allow residents to gamble on licensed charitable games, including pull-tabs, bingo and raffles, the state lottery, at tribal casinos and bet on horse racing in Minnesota.
The state is home to two racetracks, both of which also offer casino-style gaming: Canterbury Downs in Shakopee, which conducts quarter horse and thoroughbred racing, and Running Aces racetrack in Columbus, which offers standardbred harness racing. Both also act as simulcasting hubs, importing racing from other jurisdictions that residents can legally bet on.
