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.

If you go to Dawson you have to go to Gerties. Park of the historical legacy of this gold town. Although I did not gamble the setting os relaxed and fun. The show is entertaining, be prepared for audience participation. One visit and you have unlimited entry for the season.

This place was a blast. I didn't gamble as that's not my thing but the show was pretty darn entertaining and the food was not half bad.

True to the Yukon's Klondike Gold Rush spirit and atmosphere, Gerties was the first legalized gambling hall in Canada and remains the place to experience gold rush entertainment and True Yukon hospitality! Try your luck at Roulette, Black Jack, Red Dog, Poker, or slots...even if you lose all proceeds are re-invested into the community! Or watch the talented Gertie and... More

While in Dawson City, we visited Gerties because there wasn't much else to do in the evening. There is an admission charge ($10US per person) but it got you into the place for the duration of your stay in town. The staff is dressed as if it were the Gold Rush Days. There are slot machines and other gambling options... More

We were in Dawson City late in the season. Wanted to take in the show here, but when we arrived, they had cancelled that nights show. I would recommend that you be sure to check their schedule when you get to the end of the season. Have heard the show is great and sorry we missed it.

Went here by myself at 11PM. Good and reasonably priced beer. The show was impressive. It was entertaining and thought-provoking. The band was fantastic.
