Jul 18, 2005 1:04 AM


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.
