WE decided to take a short detour and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly store owners. We did not gamble but that seems to be the main attraction in the city.

Overall the casinos are always fun! However the town doesn't seem to take kind to outsiders. It is almost creepy since this is 2016 and America has changed so much! It would be nice to see the locals have friendly smiles. I notice most of...More

Yes, all the casinos have the latest modern slots and are ticket based. But Bronco Billy's still has a few coin payout machines.

We've been visiting that area for many years. The elevation of Cripple Creek is over 9,000 feet. Snow may be expected most anytime during the Fall, Winter, or Spring.
