Nearly all gambling in Wyoming is illegal, but what agency investigates infractions and enforces the law in cases of legalized gambling – or who investigates when an illegal form of gambling is uncovered in Wyoming – remains unclear.

Some have said there are more than 400 illegal slot machines operating in the state, and there is no one central clearinghouse for enforcement. The cost to investigate a single illegal slot machine can be exorbitant, and local agencies have been hesitant to foot the bill.
