About Black Hawk gaming
Black Hawk, Colorado Casinos - legalized in 1991, limited stakes gambling in Black Hawk, Colorado has been a hit. What started out as small $5 bets has become max $100 bet on November 4, 2008 when Colorado voters approved Amendment 50. Amendment 50 basically boiled down to the following: while the casinos used to have to close at 2:00am, they are now allowed to operate 24 hours a day now! Max bet has been raised to $100, Plus craps and roulette are now available. For the record the legal minimum gambling age in Colorado is 21. So if you're not that age, please don't visit, sorry!
In the beginning of legalization there were no hotels. Now there are over four luxury casino hotels one over is over 33 stories tall (Ameristar). In the beginning of the casino rush in Colorado (much like the Gold Rush) Black Hawk was the underdog of the three towns that were given legal casinos: Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek.
Today it's not quite like that. Black Hawk currently dominates the Colorado gaming scene. Central City and Cripple Creek do have some big casinos there are only one or two of them in each town. Black Hawk casinos are MOSTLY mega casinos making it have the largest draw of gamblers in Colorado.
You'll find the Isle of Capri Hotel & Casino making a hit there as well as the Riviera Black Hawk, Ameristar Casino, the Lodge Casino & Hotel at Black Hawk and the Mardi Gras (to name the largest casinos in town).
Although mostly covered up at this point Black Hawk, CO is in a National Historic district and holds a large portion of history during the Colorado Gold Rush.
