Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Travel back in time to gold rush days. Gambling and music hall. Diamond tooth Gertie was excellent singer and dancing girls were good as well. Fun evening with a male singer called 'Buddy' who was very good. Lots of slot machines and tables. You really felt you were back in old days

Great casino with an interesting floor show featuring none other than the infamous Diamondtooth Gertie belting out songs and teasing the males in the audience. Dancers are high stepping, high kicking and fun to watch. Great fun for all unless you are the one called upon the stage. Went to the earliest evening show. Have heard that it gets more bawdy as the evening gets later; but I am too old for that much fun. It is a serious gambling casino; but it is a fun place to spend an evening.

This is a very fun place and the shows are great. It's just perfect for Dawson City. Where else are the streerts still dirt and an old time gambling casino with showgirls! I expected to see Marshall Dillion on the next corner.

The Oldest continuous gambling Hall in Canada. The show that was put on was by Diamond Tooth Gertie and her Dancer was wonderful. Gertie can belt out a song like no one else. Her Dancers don't get much practice before the start but they do a great job. For the cost of $10 you can stay for all three shows, each one is different. It is well worth going to if in Dawson City.

They have three different shows each night, we never are able to stay awake to see the later shows. The show is fun and worth a visit, also if you are into slots, which we are not, you can gamble.
