Deadwood Gaming Numbers Rise Slightly in July

Deadwood’s casinos saw an uptick in revenue last month, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. In July 2017, just over $106 million was played on machines and tables in the city, resulting in a 0.6 percent increase over July 2016.

While gaming numbers increased slightly, stays at the city’s hotels declined by approximately 2.0 percent in July 2017. Celebrity Hotel and Casino General Manager Ken Gienger indicated rental homes marketed online may be contributed to the decline in hotel stays. Travel websites are also used to help gauge the relative cost of prices to keep hotels competitive.
