My brothers and I were checking out a few casinos here in Black Hawk. We each felt that the Golden Gates needed some sprucing up. It was OK for a short stint of slot playing, but then we moved on.

Looked up on-line and saw they had poker tournaments. We drove up and they didn't have enough dealers for their advertised tournaments, during a holiday week?!?? Just a big disappointment and a wasted drive.

Due to all the downsizing and reduction of player's comps, most of the premium players, have defected, to other Casinos. Until they realize this, stay away from this once, very enjoyable Casino.
