Bull Durham Casino at Black Hawk

The Bull Durham Casino is located in the middle of Black Hawk, Colorado. It got its name from an advertisement painted on the building’s exterior in 1912.

The building is a historic landmark that has seen many reinventions over the years. In 1880 it was originally used as a wagon works and later as a livery stable and blacksmith shop. Eventually the building was restored and used as an art studio and store, that is until its present-day incarnation as the Bull Durham Casino.

Walking into the casino today evokes that Old West feeling. The casino contains 186 gaming machines, a snack bar that serves pub food and boasts “the best hot dog in Black Hawk,” and an extra long bar.

Casino History

The Bull Durham Casino is owned by Global Casinos. The historic building that houses the casino is 7,967 square feet with 2,579 square feet allotted for the casino. Inside is plenty of room for the 186 gaming machines, including a three-coin bar video poker game and slots with wagers ranging from a nickel to a dollar.

While it is known to have the best percentage of payouts in their three-coin video poker, it is perhaps most lauded for its snack bar. The snack bar serves what has been lauded as the “best hot dog in Black Hawk.”

The casino doesn’t have table games, but it does have two floors of slot machines. It also boasts a newly renovated, larger-than-expected bar serving alcoholic refreshments to accompany Bull Durham’s pub food.
