Those that travel to former mining town Central City find that more than 150 years later, they can still hit the jackpot. Especially since the gambling laws loosened up a few years ago, increasing the betting limit to $100 and allowing casinos to stay open around the clock and offer craps and roulette.
A quick 38 miles from Denver via I-70, Reserve Casino Hotel is an adult playground with more than 700 slot and video poker machines; blackjack, craps, and roulette tables; and a four-table boutique poker room.
Escape for a one- ($69) or two-night ($129) stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays, in a Superior Room with a $20 dining credit. Or, opt for a one-night stay for two, Fridays and Saturdays, in a Superior Room with a $50 dining credit ($139).
Order a round of included drinks at one of the hotel's three bars—the Celebrity Bar, the Guitar Bar, or the Lava Room, a sleek nightclub and lounge. Then, use your dining credit toward dinner at Adore, a Tuscan steakhouse boasting a floor-to-ceiling selection of wines from one of the hotel's owner's vineyards, or go casual with pizza or the buffet at Market Street.
After a night at the slots or the tables, retreat to a newly remodeled room with a king or two queen beds, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, and free wireless Internet. Can't sleep? Head downstairs for another round of roulette—the casino will be open, of course.
