TYPES OF CASINOS IN COLORADO
Colorado Casinos are mainly found in the mountain towns of Central City, Black Hawk, and Cripple Creek. There are two Native American Casinos located in Towaoc and Ignacio.
Colorado casinos were originally introduced in 1991, these casinos were only allowed a very limited number of table and electronic games. Additionally, these games limited your single wager to a maximum of $5. New laws were enacted on July 2, 2009 allowing casinos to offer such games such as roulette and craps, and changing the maximum allowable bet to $100. Theses new laws also allowed for all Colorado casinos to stay open 24 hours a day.
Today Colorado casinos offer such games as poker, blackjack, let it ride, three-card poker, craps, and roulette. They also offer electronic games including slots, video poker, video blackjack, and video keno.
Colorado state Gaming laws state that the payback percentages on electronic gaming machines must be released to the public. To see slot machine payback statistics for all Colorado casinos, click here.
