The Gilpin Casino

A modern casino with old west charm and one legendary ghost


The Gilpin Casino, established in 1992, was one of the first casinos to open in Black Hawk, Colorado, following the legalization of gambling. Situated in the heart of the “storied” gaming district, this historic building which originally opened in 1869 as a hotel, now offers the same “Old West” charm but with the added modern conveniences of today’s casinos. The Gilpin Casino now encompasses more than 37,000 square feet with 500 slot machines, electronic video poker as well as blackjack, craps and roulette.

The Gilpin Casino is also known for its famous Lucille Malone’s Restaurant. The restaurant was named after a young woman who jumped to her death a century ago after learning her lover was run over by a wagon in front of the hotel. Legend has it that Ms. Malone’s ghost still haunts the premises.
