BLACK HAWK – Colorado’s mountain casinos continued their celebration today after a jam-packed launch of higher limits, new games and round-the-clock gambling.

Business at the the Isle Casino Hotel Black Hawk was up about 60 percent compared with the same time a year ago, said general manager John Bohannon.

At 1 a.m., the Lodge and Gilpin Casinos in Black Hawk had nearly three times more gamblers than they did on the same day last year.

“It’s fair to characterize the launch as successful,” said John East, an official with Jacobs Entertainment, which owns the Lodge and Gilpin casinos.

Golden Gaming, operator of three casinos in Black Hawk, also had a big turnout.
