Idaho is one of the youngest states to be admitted to the union. Idaho became a part of the United States in 1890. The Gem State is home to around 1,300,000 people. Idaho became a gambling friendly state late in the game as well, far behind most of the country. Within the state, in the 1930’s and 1940’s players were able to find slots games. There were periods in time where the slots games were deemed illegal which made all gaming machines collectors items from then on.
