Description: Dawson City’s world famous non-profit gambling hall is named after bona...
Dawson City’s world famous non-profit gambling hall is named after bona fide dance hall queen Diamond Tooth Gertie. During the Gold Rush of 1898, in order to distinguish herself from numerous Klondike kings and queens, Gertie Lovejoy wedged a sparkling diamond between her two front teeth. Any discomfort this caused paid dividends. Instead of working the creeks for her riches, Diamond Tooth Gertie made her fortune by mining the lonely prospectors who readily opened their gold pokes in return for her affections. In Dawson City today, Gertrude Lovejoy’s moniker lives on at the town-run Diamond Tooth Gertie's Casino.Replete with cancan dancers and a singing master of ceremonies named Gertie, Canada’s oldest gambling hall gives you a chance to re-live the heady days of Dawson’s Gold Rush era. With three nightly shows by Gertie and her Gertie Girls, Diamond Tooth Gertie's is today a fixture of fun-filled entertainment where patrons can enjoy a beverage while playing blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold'em poker and an array of glittering slot machines.

Gertie's offers three shows a night that highlight colorful local history. The dancers were amazing, quite talented for such an out of the way location. Food was served but we only enjoyed drinks. There are also other casino activities to enjoy.

Something is missing from the '90's... staff smiling! Cranky staff! Does not make it very inviting. The show was good

Once you pay for entry you can reuse this ticket for the rest of the season. We were there several days and went to see all the shows at there different times. Can Can Dancers and a stage show. Noisy but fun.

We'd been worded up by friends in Whitehorse that this place was a little corny, but still worth a visit. 3 shows are run over the course of the evening (your $12 entrance fee allows entrance into them all), 8pm, 10pm & 12pm, each getting progressively racier. Audience participation is encouraged, the dancers were of suprisingly good ability, and it... More

We found this quite tame and not worth the $12 each to get in. The show is only about 30 minutes long, we don't gamble and for us just not worth the price. We went to a similar thing in other places and it was much more fun. If we had known, we would have given it a pass.

We sat at a front row table and enjoyed a can-can show with a singer. Males should not sit in the front area unless they would like to be a participant in the show. The female singer sat in my lap and mussed my hair while enchanting the audience. I enjoyed the attention. Gambling is encouraged. Admission is $12- and,... More

Went for the 8:30 show. Ended up staying and seeing all 3 shows...Very energetic performances with lots of audience participation. shows get more Risque as night goes on. Fantastic "Old times show", and had a great time playing poker with the locals as well. Very friendly game with lots of action.

We enjoyed the show that was geared to the older gray haired set. We didn't gamble, but the food was good and reasonable priced.

I felt obliged to see Diamond Tooth Gerties to check it off my list but I'll confess that I don't gamble and hokey shows with audience participation make me uncomfortable. We arrived a few minutes late for the 8:30 p.m. show and stood for a few minutes before deciding to take two chairs from the tiny snack bar area. The... More
