Current gambling laws

For gamblers, South Carolina is one of the spots you don't need to visit. The in-state options are limited and they have one of the most strict sets of gambling laws in the United States.

The laws are so stringent that there is no need to even speak about online casinos or online poker. In this state, it is illegal to gamble or even own gambling devices, and doing so could lead to fines or jail time.

Lotteries and in-state and multi-state drawings are allowed and the same goes for "Charitable or House-Based Gambling," but even those are only allowed under very strict definitions.
