    Are the new casinos that just opened at the 2 horse tracks subject to the same laws as the riverboats? The Indiana code as I read it requires riverboats to provide a safe and secure place for patrons to check in concealed weapons.

    Quoted from 68 IAC 1-7-1

    (d) The riverboat licensee shall provide a secure place to which patrons do not have access to store weapons checked by:

    (1) patrons;

    (2) off duty law enforcement officers; or

    (3) off duty federal enforcement officers.

    (e) Security personnel may carry a weapon on board the riverboat during times that patrons are not present. (Indiana Gaming

    I like to gamble late at night and it just makes me mad that I was told that there is no weapons check in at Hoosier Park and as a matter of fact I was not to have a weapon anywhere on the premises including locked in you car. What better to time to rob someone late at night, big dark parking lot, and lots a money because you got lucky. Anyone experience or knowledge would be helpful. I have emailed my state congressmen but they are Dems, fat chance they take me seriuosly.

    Well, the answer is right there in the law. The facitilty must provide you with a place to store your weapon before entering the casino proper, which is where the gaming will take place. Restaurants, etc, are not included, unless they are on the actual boat.

    If they are giving you a line of BS, ask to speak with the Gaming Commission Agent on duty. Also, print and take with you a copy of the law.

    Edit: Ooops, sorry missed the part about the horse tracks. I am not sure who regulates horse tracks, but I do know that they usually have a different set of rules for them, as they are a different class of gaming.

    Horse tracks work off of pari-mutual systems, meaning that you are not betting against the track itself, but rather against a pool of the wagers. The track takes a cut of the pool for its profit. This is commonly referred to as Class 2 gaming, from the defination provided in the IGRA.

    Casinos are different. In a casino, you are betting directly against the casino itself. The casino makes its profit directly from the losses of the player, and creates these losses by a mathematical advantage in the games it offers. This is known as Class 3 gaming, and is more heavily regulated, to prevent fraud on the part of the casino.

    The race track (hoosier park) now has a casino. This a seprate buildingfrom pari-mutal gamming.
