Nevada's major gaming companies avoided Colorado for nearly two decades. The state's casinos were legalized in the historic mining towns of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. Las Vegas and Reno's gaming firms invested millions to change the perception of the Colorado casino communities. Colorado's mountainous rural casino towns have turned the state into one of top 15 gaming revenue-producing regions.

Colorado: Cripple Creek shuts down casino device fee exemption, seeks up to 33% rise

A new ordinance in Cripple Creek, Colorado, has been passed to eliminate a portion of the fees charged for the first 50 devices operating in each casino.
