INDIAN CASINOS IN IDAHO
All Idaho casinos are affiliated with Native American tribes. There are currently seven Idaho Native American casinos, they all offer electronic pull-tab machines and other video games. There are no Idaho casinos that offer live table games, only electronic versions of games such as: craps, baccarat, blackjack, and roulette. These electronic machines only print out a receipt which which can only be cashed by a floor attendant, or taken to the cashier’s cage. Some Idaho casinos also offer off-track betting, bingo, and poker.
Idaho does not require its Native American casinos to provide minimum slot machine payback percentages to the public, nor do they make any information available on what the machines actually pay back to the public.
Unlike the casinos in Idaho, in many U.S. states the slot machine payback statistics for that particular state’s casinos are released as a matter of public record. Just click here to see a list of slot machine payback statistics for casinos in all U.S. states.

You can also come here during the winter months if you enjoy skiing and snowmobiling.
These falls are also called the Niagara of the West and can be found on the northeastern edge of the city of Twin Falls. The falls are 212-foot-tall and were created by the turbulent forces of the Snake River. The waterfalls flow year-round and are at their peak between April and July. You can also explore the surrounding areas which include the adjacent Dierks Lake which is filled with swimming spots, hiking trails, and scenic overlooks. Picnicking areas are also popular and provide stunning views of the falls.
