A historic building with fun old time characters. Calamity Jane works the tables upstairs, where you can also play darts and shoot pool. Beautiful decor and atmosphere. Good assortment of slot machines, great Window seats. Organized happy staff. I visit often.

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.
