(S.D.)-Five Casinos Up For Sale In Deadwood

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 04/15/2013 07:36 AM
     DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Five casinos are for sale on Main Street in Deadwood, the Black Hills gambling town in western South Dakota.
 
    
Deadwood's gambling industry brought in more than $1.1 billion in gaming revenue last year, but some buildings on Main Street now have fallen silent.
 
     Some people speculate that the Main Street casinos have been left behind by flashier resorts that offer lodging and other services.
 
     Former Deadwood Mayor Tom Blair says the larger casinos draw people who want beds and they also attract conventions.
 
     Blair says he wants to see Main Street casinos promote Deadwood's Western flair and historic significance.
