The sky’s the limit for guests for this weekend’s debut of baccarat and no-limit betting!

Monarch Casino Resort Spa will raise the stakes for gaming guests starting Saturday

Take flight to Monarch Casino Resort Spa in the historic gold mining City of Black Hawk this Saturday as a second Colorado Gold Rush begins! Players with deep pockets and big dreams will try their luck with new no-limits wagers for the first time in state history, made possible by a recent voter-approved change to Colorado's gaming laws.

“No-limit wagers, new games, like baccarat, and side-bets are exciting additions Coloradans have wanted for quite some time,” said David Farahi, COO for Monarch Casino Resort Spa. “On top of an enhanced Guest experience, no-limit gaming helps keep a significantly larger portion of gaming revenue in the state of Colorado, while helping to fund institutions like community colleges and History Colorado,” added Farahi.

Later this month, Guests will be able to enjoy the debut of Monarch’s all-new poker room beginning May 14th at 6 PM. Players will be able to showcase their best “poker-face” playing Texas hold ’em, Omaha, or seven-card stud. 

There’s something for everyone at Monarch Casino Resort Spa. Come enjoy the newly-opened luxury spa featuring world-class amenities atop Monarch’s mountain modern 23-story hotel to help guests relax, renew, and rejuvenate. Foodies can indulge in some of Colorado’s finest craft beer and a mouthwatering 14-er inspired burger at the fan-friendly Twenty-Four 7. Discerning diners can make a reservation at the Tripadvisor 5-star rated Monarch Chophouse to indulge in a classic white-tablecloth steakhouse dining experience!

Monarch Casino Resort Spa is a short drive west of Denver through Colorado’s breathtaking high country. Guests will feel like VIPs from the moment they valet or self-park in Monarch’s state-of-the-art parking garage featuring the shortest walk in Black Hawk to the red-hot action of the gaming floor. Take a trip for a day, a night, or an entire weekend to Colorado’s premier gaming resort destination!
