Black Hawk, Colorado-Mini Las Vegas of Colorado
Colorado opened as a casino town in 1991. It's home to 15 casinos consisting of: Ameristar Casino Resort & Spa, Bull Durham saloon & Casino, The Gilpin Casino, Golden Gates, Golden Gulch, Isle Casino and Hotel, Lady Luck, The Lodge Casino, Mardi Gras, Monarch Casino Resort & Spa, Red Dolly Casino, Saratoga Casino, Sasquatch Casino, Wild Card Saloon, and Z Casino. Black Hawk has only 118 permanent residents. The town has been in heated competition for gambling revenue with its neighbor Central City since casinos opened in both towns in 1991. Black Hawk continues to have three times the number of casinos, and generates more than seven times the gambling revenue that Central City, Colorado does.
