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. « less

Casino(non-profit, benefits local charities, etc) with entertainment. Fun place to go in the evening. For gambling, there are slots, roulette, blackjack and poker. Can-can type of show plays 8:30, 10:00 PM and midnight, each one is different, well worth seeing.

Gerties is a fun evening with a can-can style show and casino. This isn't Vegas so lighten up. The great thing is that Gerties is run as a non-profit and all proceeds benefit the local community ( women's shelter, schools, etc.) Not much else to do in town at night anyhow. Enjoy.

My wife and I visited during May 2014. It was a one-night stopover on a bus tour. We enjoyed our pizza slices, which were as tasty as our local pizzeria. There are reasonable prices for drinks and food, such as hamburgers, fries, and such. We attended the early show. I made my show business debut as one of the audience... More

I wasn't sure when I first heard about it, but I went because everyone else in the group did and I loved it. Make sure to see at least one of the shows.

We went to see the show as it was highly recommended. It is like stepping back in time to observe the show. Gertie was great along with the dancing girls.

Although the shows are a little short, they are cute. The staff were friendly and my husband and I thought it was a good place to go for the evening, get a little snack and enjoy ourselves. They serve hamburgers and other sandwiches and pizza slices at a reasonable price. We were spending a couple of days in Dawson City,... More

I liked the energy of the singer and the dancers and those of us watching the performance. I enjoyed the old songs and was totally impressed with the excellent performances of the dancers. A real fun place to spend an evening

During our one-night stop in Dawson City we decided to visit this Gambling Hall. The entrance fee is only for one year?! but still "only" for $12. They have 3 shows every night, we missed the first one. They were not busy during weak day and in low season (May) so we had table just in front of stage. The... More

We'll let the dancers and singers know you enjoyed it. It's true that all the shows are different and get racier the later it gets. Glad you had a good time and hope you'll be back one day! More
