Trying your Luck at Casino Hotels in Colorado
Are you fond of the game of chance? Does picturesque Colorado hold an attraction for you? Then you will be pleased to know that there are casino hotels in Colorado that you will love because in 1995 the Colorado cities of Black Hawk, Central city and Cripple Creek legalized gambling. Since then, many casinos have flourished but only a few luxurious casino hotels have established their venues to many patrons seeking to win big at the numerous slot machines, poker rooms and blackjack tables.
Welcome to Black Hawk, Colorado
The largest of the three gaming cities is home to many casino hotels, a grand total of 4. The Ameristar Casino and Hotel is a luxury hotel with around 600 guest rooms and suites. Another good option is the Isle of Capri located on Main Street; it is considered one of the more popular casinos due to its size. The Isle of Capri is the second largest casino in the state of Colorado with more than one thousand slot machines and or video poker terminals.
One of the first casino hotels you will see when entering Black Hawk from Denver will be the Lady Luck Hotel and Casino. This fine establishment, with over 600 slot machines and many poker tables, is connected to the Isle of Capri which makes both casinos very accessible. The Lodge Casino on Main Street is historically known for being the first to open its hotel and casino at the same time. Tuesdays and Thursdays at six p.m. poker lessons are offered if you are interested in honing your Texas Hold ém skills.
Central City “The Richest Square Mile on Earth”
Half a mile away from Black Hawk is Central City. “The Richest Square Mile on Earth” holds only two casino hotels The Century Casino Hotel and Reserve Casino Hotel.

The J.P .McGills Casino and The Midnight Rose are both members of the Triple Crown group along with the Brass Ass Casino. This means that although the McGillis Casino officially lacks table games the Midnight Rose Casino does not and, fortunately, they are connected.

Gold Rush has around three hundred slot machines and baby sister Gold Digger has one hundred right next door.
Gambling in Colorado can be a lot of fun but do remember to game responsibly. Carry proper identification and, if drinking, do so modestly as the Casino bartender will cut you off if he feels you are over the limit. Colorado strictly enforces its DUI and age limit laws so be respectful while having fun. Good Luck!
