First Gold Casino


The First Gold Casino is the first major casino you’ll see if you enter Deadwood SD from the East.  The First Gold Hotel Deadwood is part of the complex so you can stay on site.

From Rapid City, take I-90 west to exit 30 at Sturgis, continue on Hwy 14A (boulder canyon) to Deadwood.  Total trip one way is about 50miles.

From Spearfish, take I-90 east to exit 17.  Continue on US hwy 85.  Take a right on to Main St (which is also Hwy 85) and you’ll be at the First Gold, it is just a 15 mile trip from Spearfish.

The Deadwood trolley stops at this casino.  On the trolley you can take a ride to the historic downtown area of Deadwood.  On a nice day you could walk to the historic downtown, but the trolley stops at the casino every 20 minutes and is a great way to see Historic Deadwood SD.


The First Gold has eleven casinos, all of them smoke-free and all of them open 24 hours a day.  If you are going to be gambling at the First Gold Casino, I recommend becoming a Gold Club member.  With your membership you earn cash back rewards, discounts on food and merchandise and they will send you monthly newsletters.

The First Gold also has live table games with bet up to $100.  Some of the table games they offer are Blackjack, 3-Card poker and a new 5-card poker game Mississippi Stud.


The First Gold has a large parking lot, a covered parking ramp and on many evenings they even have valet parking
