Some very exciting things have been happening in regards to what casinos are allowed to do throughout the US as late, and in Colorado the change has taken the form of allowing casinos within the state to be open for twenty four hours a day and seven days a week, giving players access to unlimited gambling opportunities. Not only that, but the previous bet limits of just $5 have been lifted, so you can now put down as much as $100 at a time if you want to! Gambling has been around here since 1991, with limited stakes the only legal form of play available here.
You have to be twenty one years of age or older to gamble here, and there are three historic areas which were allowed to open casinos in order to try to revitalise the areas. There are also two native American casinos which are open on reservation land, but these are the only areas of Colorado where casinos are allowed – so make sure that you are near enough to visit either the reservations or the cities of Black Hawk, Central City, and Cripple Creek. The differences between them seem to be that Black Hawk has gone for more of a glitzy Vegas vibe, whereas Central City is more intent on preserving that history that makes it so well known in the first place. Meanwhile, Cripple Creek tends to be right in the middle – with old west appeal combined with bigger casino venues. Slot machines are very popular here, and most casinos will offer dining facilities on site as well as other forms of entertainment. There are fifty three casinos in total throughout the state, which gives it the ranking of seventh in the US in terms of the total number of gambling facilities on offer. The largest number of casinos can be found in Black Hawk, which has twenty one venues; the largest casino in individual terms is the Lady Luck Casino and Hotel, which has seven hundred and fifty four slot machine games as well as fifteen table games. The next venue after this in size is the Century Casino and Hotel, which has six hundred and twenty seven slot machines on offer as well as twelve table games for you to choose from. There is also a lottery which you can take part in, by the by, if you want to strike it rich here.
Even though the venues mentioned above may have the largest amount of games, when it comes to having the largest gambling floor in Colorado it is another casino which takes the honours. The Double Eagle Hotel and Casino has two hundred and fifteen thousand, seven hundred and seventy one square feet of space for you to play in, which certainly allows you to get some elbow space! There are also plenty of other great casinos on offer, though we will not list them all here due to the large amount that we would need to go through.
