Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City is a great vacation destination for gambling lovers who also want to sample some of the sights and attractions of Kansas. The casino opened in 2009, with the aim to provide upscale competition to the handful of large, popular casinos in the northeast of the state and in Kansas City. The Boot Hill Casino and Resort has certainly fulfilled that promise, providing a great place to gamble and more then enough machines and gambling tables to satisfy customers. Dodge City is famous for its Wild West history, so this resort is perfect for gamblers who want a bit more from their vacation than the thrill of the game.
The Boot Hill Casino is not the largest of the Kansas casinos. However, with 580 gaming machines and a dozen table and poker games, it is still one of the major casinos on the western half of the state, toward the Colorado border. Games on offer include poker, 3-car poker, craps, blackjack and roulette, while guests are invited to take part in Boot Hill Casino events such as poker tournaments. It is the first state-owned casino in Kansas, as opposed to being owned by Native Americans. While it is currently of medium size, the casino resort always has plans to improve and to expand its gaming space.
The Boot Hill Casino and Resort has much more to offer than just gambling. The resort provides an all-around experience, meaning you’ll never want to leave. The Firesides Restaurant, serving up good Kansas home-cooking by the fire, is just one of the little touches that make the resort a special place. Breakfast, meanwhile, is one of the most important Boot Hill Casino events, and if you’re a Breakfast Club card holder, you can get a feast fit for a king. After 9 a.m., breakfast at the casino comes with an optional alcoholic drink such as a Bloody Mary. When it comes to relaxing in between games, there is also the saloon, where a cold mug of draft beer or two is the perfect break from a busy day of gambling.
Boot Hill Casino is on the outskirts of Dodge City, home to some of the greatest tales of the Wild West in American history. Among its famous sheriffs is the legendary Wyatt Earp. The city, which now earns its livelihood through cattle, has a long history of buffalo hunting and trading. This history comes to life in the town’s Historic Front Street and in the reconstructions of old-time shops and saloons, recognizable from the great Western films. There are plenty of hotels, some with Wild West themes, only a few minutes’ drive from the Boot Hill Casino and Resort. There are also plenty of accommodation choices near to attractions such as the Boot Hill Museum. One of the most popular historic things to do in Kansas, the museum is full of old relics of the city’s Wild West past. So, when there aren’t enough Boot Hill casino events for the day, you can always explore the fascinating city around the resort.
