Several Deadwood casinos that delayed reopening are now welcoming guests again.
Saloon No. 10 opened its doors on Thursday. It closed a few days before the casinos were ordered to do so by the city commission in March. The bars and restaurant are open. Slot machines are the only form of gambling that will be offered by Saloon No. 10 at this time. The table games and poker room will remain dark.
Bullock Hotel opened last week. It is home to slots, video poker and two electronic blackjack machines. It also has a few classic $1 coin slots.
First Gold came on line this week. Its table games are included in that. The casino noted that promo play that was impossible to claim in March will be released in phases. Celebrity Hotel and Gold Country also now welcome guests again.
There are two casinos that remain closed: Iron Horse Inn and Deadwood Gulch.
Cadillac Jack’s remains the only live poker room in Deadwood. It has six tables and limits players to four to a game. Silverado confirmed this week that its poker room will remain closed through at least the end of 2020.
Deadwood casinos were permitted to reopen two weeks ago on May 7. The South Dakota Department of Health reports that no COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed in Lawrence County since that time. Deadwood is the county seat of Lawrence.
