Tennessee, or the 'Volunteer State', runs a public lottery in order to fund its local schools. The state also also allows for horse racing, simulcast wagering, and pari mutuel betting, however, when it comes to casinos the state strictly forbids them within its borders, as gambling devices are prohibited according to legislation. For those caught gambling in Tennessee, it is considered a Class C misdemeanor, resulting in a fine of $1-50, however, running a gambling establishment is far worse and is classed as a Class E felony, which could mean up to 6 years jail time and a $10,000 fine.
