Deadwood Advantage covers gaming, hotel and entertainment in the Deadwood, South Dakota area. It is operated by John and Kristina Mehaffey under Advantage Media LLC. Deadwood Advantage is part of a branded network of sites that include Colorado Advantage, Vegas Advantage, West Virginia AdvantageMaryland Advantage, US Casino Advantage, Atlantic City Advantage and Pennsylvania Advantage, Ohio Advantage and Michigan Advantage. The sites were launched in that order.

We lived in the Black Hills community of Johnson Siding from 2006 to 2010. John regularly played poker at Silverado and Saloon No. 10. His favorite game is the dealer’s choice at Saloon No. 10. Omaha hi/lo at Silverado is another fun game. We still visit for vacation, to see friends from the Black Hills, and to keep the site updated.
