2) Tin Lizzie Gaming Resort, Deadwood: Fine dining, a large, spread-out gaming floor, along with top-tier games. This one is a favorite on Main Street.

1) Cadillac Jack's Gaming Resort, Deadwood: No surprise to see this one at the top of the list. Full-Service casino with over 22 table games, each featuring $1,000 bet limits, or play one of over 240 slot machines,

It's no surprise that the town of Deadwood dominates this list. It's what Deadwood has been known for since the 19th century. But at least things are a little more civil in saloons than they were back in Wild Bill Hickcock's Day.
