Colorado’s Tribal casinos are
the most often overlooked gambling facilities in Colorado. The Sky Ute Casino
and Ute Mountain Casino are in Towaoc and Ignacio, Colorado and they are both
top notch facilities operated by the Ute Tribe in Colorado. Moreover, they offer
some of the best Colorado gaming around.
Sky Ute Casino has Colorado’s
only non-smoking slot room. Ute Mountain Casino has a brand new hotel. Both of
these casino facilities are spotless and are complete with convention center and
hotels attached to the casinos. Both have excellent poker facilities, a key
component for today’s casino customers.
The Ute Indians have a rich
history in Colorado, as well as the Southwest in general.
While Colorado tribal casinos are
not legally bound to the rules set-up by the Colorado Division of Gaming, the
casinos comply voluntarily with the exception that they stay open 24 hours a
day. The other Colorado Casinos must close at 2 a.m. each day.
Indian casinos have the same
games as the casinos in Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. They have
live blackjack and live poker games including Texas Hold’em, plus the standard
slots, video slots, video poker and more.
