If you are a crapd player, this little town has several tables and some super strong 10x odds on tables. We had a great time walking around, as well as playing the tables

There are many casinos up and down Main street. Not much else in town unless you like to gamble. You can ride a train and visit a gold mine nearby.

We are glad we went. The town physically is adorable. Nicely preserved building. A true step back in time. The casino scene and all the tawdry it attracts ruined it. Will never go back.

Yes, all the casinos have the latest modern slots and are ticket based. But Bronco Billy's still has a few coin payout machines.

We've been visiting that area for many years. The elevation of Cripple Creek is over 9,000 feet. Snow may be expected most anytime during the Fall, Winter, or Spring.
