The state officially lowered the age limit in tribal-owned casinos more than a year ago.

North Dakota gamblers who are between 19 and 21 now have a new place to play, according to a KFYR local news report. Tribal-owned 4 Bears Casino and Lodge has instituted the lower age limit approved by the state at the end of 2022.

Per the terms of the deal, casinos around the state owned by Tribes can admit customers who are under 21 but older than 18.

The casino checks IDs and issues band to those who are between 19 and 21, according to the local report. Banded guests at 4 Bears can now get in on the action on slot machines and table games throughout the casino thanks to the new state law.

However, Casino General Manager Patrick Packineau told local news that the age limit reduction will not affect how the destination sells alcohol.

He said that the alcohol-drinking age will continue to stay at 21 and older. Patrons will still need to provide a valid state ID before they can purchase drinks.

The casino lodge offers its guests access to a Vegas-style sportsbook bar and lounge that features wagering options on sporting events from several pro national leagues that include the NFL, NBA and MLB. Sports bettors can also take advantage of opportunities to bet on college football and basketball games through 4 Bears Casino & Lodge.

Players can access both in-person ticket counters or via self-service kiosks. The recently remodeled lodge is home to a sports bar that offers gaming stations and a dining room, as well as 90 guest rooms, a spa, a fine dining steakhouse and several meeting rooms.
