Mardi Gras Casino & Sportsbook | Black Hawk Colorado

One important thing to mention is that Mardi Gras Casino is directly connected to Golden Gates Casino, a sister casino along with Golden Gulch Casino. To this end, patrons can hop in and out of either casino and explore the different offers on the table. It is all one big happy family, and there is lots to be happy about.

Players can also enter high-stakes tournaments, as will be discussed below under the bonuses and promotions section.

Bonuses & Promotions

Mardi Gras Casino has a simple strategy to keep customers coming back: keep luck on their side. If you don’t manage to win at the casino floor, you are more than likely to win in one or more of the casino’s numerous in-house promotions.

Most of these in-house promotions are temporary, as they tend to change after some time. They range in nature, but you can be sure that the prizes up for grabs are always enticing. Common promotions include:

· $500,000 Monster Cash Tournaments

Players stand a chance to win cash prizes as high as $500,000 in the Monster Cash Tournament. Players need a certain amount of points and entries to qualify for the tournament.

· Dining Giveaways

Players can also win dining vouchers to spend as they wish at any of the on-site restaurants. The menu features an endless list of local and foreign delicacies.

· Point Giveaways

Every player at Mardi Gras Casino earns points that they can redeem for discounts on a wide range of services. However, the casino has designated certain days as “points galore” days, whereby players stand unlimited chances to win more points (up to 20,000 points at one go) than they usually do. Additionally, players can win as much as $80 worth of free play time for slot games.

· Scavenger Hunt

The scavenger hunt program is designed for new members to help them become familiar with the casino. Participants can have lots of fun looking for clues all over the casino. They also stand to earn as much as $200 to use as they please, including on gift vouchers and free slot play.

Poker enthusiasts have a sweet deal that comes in a series of long-running promotions. These include a Rakeback program, which pays players up to $100 for playing for at least 20 hours per week. The promos also include private tournaments that give way to jackpots with thousands of dollars in prizes.

Some of these tournaments go down every day, but others take place in between intervals. Players are urged to check in with the casino for a timeline of scheduled events.

Additional Amenities

It is worth noting that Mardi Gras Casino focuses all of its efforts on the thrill of gambling. As such, the range of amenities is somewhat limited.


One of the most notable and inconvenient shortcomings of Mardi Gras Casino is the lack of accommodation services. The casino doesn’t feature a hotel, and instead focuses all its attention on giving patrons a good time on the casino floor.

However, it is worth mentioning that patrons at Mardi Gras Casino are within a short walking distance of several outstanding hotels. Patrons looking to spend the night in town can even ask for recommendations to the ideal hotels at the reception.


Stomachs are guaranteed to rumble, with such high-energy gambling. Thankfully, there are three on-site restaurants and an additional three on-site bars where patrons can grab a bite and quench their thirst.
