Deadwood Gaming

Welcome to Deadwood!

The Deadwood Gaming Association (DGA) is the only non-profit association representing the interests of South Dakota’s commercial casino industry. Founded in 1990, the association represents the gaming industry before the legislature, the South Dakota Commission on Gaming, and the Deadwood City Commission. 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.

Statement for Constitutional Amendment B Passing

DEADWOOD, S.D. (11/03/2020) –We want to thank the voters of South Dakota for their support of Deadwood, not only today but for the last thirty years. Giving Deadwood the tools it needs to stay competitive nationally as an integrated gaming destination with legal sports wagering is greatly appreciated.

Deadwood will continue to uphold its promises to the people of South Dakota as great partners with South Dakota Departments of Tourism and Historic Preservation, along with our contributions to Deadwood Historic Preservation, Lawrence County, and area school districts and municipalities through gaming revenue taxes.

We look forward to working with the legislature and the Governor to implement the voters’ wishes for legal sports wagering and hope to be accepting sports wagers by July 1st, 2021.

Thank you again for your support of Deadwood and tribal gaming with your vote today.
