Together, these businesses in Deadwood are the entertainment of choice for over a million people annually, generating enormous economic impact throughout South Dakota from out-of-state visitors to Deadwood. Our casinos are also good corporate citizens, contributing numerous resources to the local and state economies. Last year, Deadwood casinos contributed over $15,929,000 in gaming tax revenue for historic preservation, tourism promotion, Lawrence County and its municipalities and schools, the State of South Dakota’s general fund and other governmental entities.
