In "the richest square mile" in the U.S., based on the gold mining that occurred in the past, Central City has somehow maintained most of it's old american town look and feel. I visited several casinos in the city, (separate reviews) and the Famous Bonanza by far, had the ambience and feel of the old time casinos. It actually has... More

All the video poker machines and slots were still on the old coin system instead of the voucher system. When I received my players club... More

If you are a blackjack player, this is the place to go in Black Hawk/Central City. The casino is small and somewhat worn looking, but the upstairs backjack table has the best rules in Colorado. They have doulbe deck, $5.00 minimum with double after split. A couple of other casinos have double deck games but all have higher minimums.
