Gambling in South Carolina laws appear restrictive compared to some-other-states in America. No casinos, tribal-or-commercial, are legal within state lines and live poker is practically non-existent. Charitable games are heavily-restricted, and social gambling is implicitly illegal.
Casino cruises launch from South Carolina cities, and the State Lottery is popular, as are the 100% legal Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) competitions.
Since its 2002 launch, the South Carolina State lottery has provided the state with more than $5 billion in revenue, which goes to improving public education outcomes.
