  1. Compare share trading platforms. Use our comparison table to narrow down top brokers by fees and bonuses.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. You’ll need personal and financial details, like your contact and bank information.
  3. Search for the stock you're interested in. Find the stock by name or ticker symbol, like SGMS or DKNG.
  4. Decide on how many to buy. Some brokers will allow you to purchase fractional shares, while others require you to purchase whole shares.
  5. Choose an order type. Invest in the casino stocks now with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until the stock reaches your desired price.

The value of any investment can go up or down depending on news, trends and market conditions. We are not investment advisers, so do your own due diligence to understand the risks before you invest.

Bottom line

While it’s possible to turn a profit investing in casino stocks, keep in mind that — like any investment — casino stocks are not immune to risk. These stocks are subject to fluctuating conditions — both in the market and in the gambling and entertainment industry, so carefully vet your picks before you invest. And if you’re new to investing, or if it’s been awhile since you’ve taken a critical look at your investing accounts, compare brokers to make sure you’re getting the best features in your trading account.
