Monarch Casino & Resort Review
The Monarch Casino has announced big plans of a new hotel and full remodel. The new place will easily rival Ameristar and shows pools on the top floor of its towers. It looks magnificent.
The Monarch is the first casino you will see when coming into Black Hawk via Hwy 119 from Golden or Denver. The Monarch is a huge casino with about 750 slot machines, live poker and blackjack. Located right next to another popular casino The Isle of Capr" and Lady Luck - which has walkways above the streets to the other casinos nearyby.
The Monarch Casino offers around 600 slots, video poker machines, and has 14 tables with a variety of games. There is no poker room at this time. It has a spacious indoor parking garage (500 spaces), with the main entrance to the casino on the 3rd level. There’s also valet parking on the ground level. There is no hotel, so you’ll need to stay somewhere else if that’s what you’re looking for.
The Monarch has a large entertainment venue on the second floor and offers a variety of shows and events on a regular basis. Be sure to check their schedule if you’re planning a trip and want to include a “show” of some kind.
Overall, I do recommend a visit to the Monarch, especially for table players and buffet enthusiasts. It’s a great place to park and if it’s too crowded inside just walk on through on your way to nearby places. Remember, it will be a downhill stroll later in the evening when you come back, and maybe by then the staffing levels will better match the numbers of customers.
Gaming at Monarch
Monarch Casino Black Hawk offers players first access to exclusive slots. If you have played at the Atlantis in Reno, you know the quality of gaming you are going to find here. If not, you are in for a pleasant surprise with over 600 slots, video poker games - some never seen anywhere else before.
The casino is situated over two floors and the cabaret is upstairs. The table games are action-packed and many of them allow side bets to really ramp up your winnings when you go on a streak. Straight up blackjack, double deck and Buffalo Bonus are offered with reasonable limits. And forget about what you heard in the past, Monarch is all about the NEW. Now max bets aren't throttled down to $5 or even $10 - when you hit that sweet spot you can bet up to $100 per hand.
