Isle of Capri Casino – Colorado
The Isle of Capri Casino remains one of the largest gaming establishments in Black Hawk, one of the three towns in the State of Colorado which allows small stakes gambling. Open 24 hours a day all year long, the casino attracts visitors from around the country.
The Isle of Capri maintains a colorful, fun-filled tropical vacation theme in its decor. The casino is located on the first two floors of a massive multi-level modern building at 401 Mainstreet. It operates in conjunction with two hotels, the Isle of Capri Hotel upstairs and the nearby Lady Luck Tower (located at 340 Main Street in Black Hawk). Patrons at all of these facilities can utilize a convenient adjacent parking garage. There is also a small shuttle bus that regularly transports visitors from a general parking area a few miles away into Black Hawk.

Gaming Facilities at the Isle of Capri Casino

Slots and Video Poker Games
Run by a large corporation, the casino frequently moves electronic gaming machines around, upgrades them and adds new, more current items to its large roster of entertaining selections. The lower level of the casino contains many halls of slots machines. Some of the machines exist in rows, others are scattered across rooms in semi-circular configurations. There are convenient ATM machines near most sections. The gaming area is generally well attended and spacious.
Some popular slots games at the casino include traditional three and five reel machines. Although gambling remains low stakes, patrons can play for as little as one penny or as much as $25. Popular games include Blazing 7s, Monster Money, Buffalo and Queen of Atlantis. There are many rows of video poker machines in the Isle of Capri Casino, too. Some of the offerings include Double Bonus, Jacks or Better, White Hot Aces and Deuces Wild. The Isle of Capri boasts a fairly high percentage of player returns on some video poker machines (into the 99th percentile in some cases) and the large selection of games usually draws crowds.
The Isle of Capri Casino furnishes a wide array of table game selections. These include both traditional non-progressive games and table games linked in a progressive payout arrangement.
