The $150 million Black Hawk Casino, managed by the Chicago-based Hyatt Hotels Corp., is slated to open Oct. 29.

The casino will be the largest gaming complex in Colorado and will feature 1,332 slot and video games. There are also 22 tables being built for poker and blackjack.

A 25-story Hyatt hotel with 350 suites will be built starting next year if the casino is successful, according to a Dallas-based developer Windsor Resort Corp. Black Hawk has become Colorado's top source for gaming and tourist revenue.
