Destination Deadwood: South Dakota’s Casino Hotbed

The town of Deadwood, South Dakota was born in the heady days of the Black Hills Gold Rush. The discovery of gold in the Black Hills in 1874 and in Deadwood Gulch in late 1875 led thousands of settlers to the area, erecting a town almost overnight in 1876. Many of the most famous (and infamous) characters of the Old West passed through the town at one time or another. Outlaws like Jack McCall and lawmen like Seth Bullock spent considerable time in Deadwood, and the city remains an integral component of the mythology of the Old West.
Deadwood has a special place in the American consciousness, these images established by countless cowboy and outlaw dime store novels, films, video games, and television shows that celebrate the rich history of the town. However, times have changed and these days, Deadwood has been transformed from a rough and tumble mining town, to a world-class destination for casino gaming, outdoor excursions, historical tours, historic preservation and more.

With slot play at an all-time high, casinos are raising the bar when it comes to insuring their guests are comfortable and feeling lucky. If you ask a slot player what makes a great slot floor, they will likely suggest features such as wide aisles between machines, upbeat background music, high ceilings and good ventilation so they don’t have to play in a smoke filled box. They also like great cocktail service and convenient restaurants located near the floor.

This year’s Top Slot Floors consists of properties that portray many of these features and should be on every slot players list to visit.
