Blackjack on the Decline in Deadwood

For years it was card games like poker and blackjack that grew the reputation of Deadwood, South Dakota as a gambling hotspot, but it appears that card games are on the decline, as November numbers revealed that blackjack and poker revenues fell 28% during the month.

The South Dakota Gaming Commission on Gaming reported that poker and blackjack games fell by 28% in the month, while other table games were down roughly 8%. Slot machine wagers for the month totaled $74.3 million for the month, which is up 10% from the same period last year.

Commenting on the results Deadwood Gaming Association Executive Director Mike Rodman said, “Despite November’s mixed results, 2015 year-to-date Deadwood gaming handle continues to outpace 2014 by 3.34 percent in slots and 7.57 percent in table games.”

Deadwood grew to infamy during the 1800s as a variety of outlaws and frontiersman, with the legend of Wild Bill Hickock ending when he was murdered during a poker game. Today there are 24 different spots to wager at, with some sites offering slot machines, some offering table games, and some spots offering both.
