Some river basin states in the U.S., scrambling to attract tourist dollars, are legalizing riverboat gambling. In response to these changes in gambling laws, enterprising businesses are applying for costly licenses--for example, $50,000 is the price in Illinois--to run casino-type gambling operations on passenger vessels. The author looks at the situation for states along the Mississippi, Missouri and other rivers, characterizing Iowa's code as a model.
