Gold prospectors of the 1890s sought riches - not only by digging deep into the rock under Cripple Creek, but also by playing games of chance in the boomtown's saloons and casinos. When Colorado legalized gambling in select historic districts in 1991, casinos sprang up along Cripple Creek's main street and gave the historically rich tourist town at the base of Pikes Peak a whole new year-round appeal.

Today, the thrill of the Gold Rush is back, and no other place on earth delivers the gambling excitement of Cripple Creek. It's the only place in Colorado where you can rock around the clock and enjoy cocktails 24/7. All of the grandly restored Western-style casinos here are within easy walking distance of one-another. Try your luck at blackjack, poker, craps, roulette and all of the latest slots. Cripple Creek's loose slot machines offer the highest paybacks in the state, according to the latest annual Department of Revenue Gaming Report. 

Many of the casinos also offer top-notch dining and accommodations.

The hardy pioneers of yesteryear knew a good thing when they found it, and today's visitors know they'll strike the mother lode of gambling fun in Cripple Creek. Our famous good fortune may just become part of your history, too.
