This place has potential, but needs lots of help in many areas. They need snacks like popcorn, pizza, cookies, hot dogs. (Free for players) hard to win here, especially progressives/jackpots.
Workers could be much friendlier, food is pretty good though, service is bad-slow to come back to slots to check on ya. When you order food at the slots, they forget to bring all the stuff you ordered.
Music is terrible, loud and no variety! Teenager type music, hardly ever any country music. Smoke smells terrible inside casino because they allow smoking by all the doors!!! No 5-cent video poker, not enough penny, nickel slots. Too many new complicated machines, need more old one arm bandits. Retro would be nice to bring them old ones back. Points hard to earn, with little payback. Rooms have smoke smell coming in, beds are so hard/uncomfortable!
This place has great blackjack rules, including stand 17 and late surrender. $100 buy-in on table games gets a $10 cash rebate, which you can do once a day. In addition to this, one hour of table game play gets you a $10 comp to the snack bar or their excellent restaurant.
Good video poker-16/10 NSU Deuces 3 play for .25 and $1, and single line $1.
Every employee was helpful and friendly. The locals are fun people, too, although they are some of the worst blackjack players I've ever seen. Drink service was very good. There is no smoking in any Cripple Creek casino.
I enjoyed this place, and Cripple Creek in general. Most of the casinos are all on the same street and are even closer together than downtown Las Vegas. The town was a circa 1900 gold mining town, and the present-day citizens have done well preserving and restoring the Victorian era buildings.
