Land of the Dead Man’s Hand

By Linda Tancs

A legend of the American West, Wild Bill Hickock came to the tiny gold camp of Deadwood, South Dakota in search of his fortune.  Instead, he was gunned down during a poker match holding aces and eights, dubbed the Dead Man’s Hand.  You might think that spelled the end of gaming in this historic town (a National Historic Landmark).  No such luck (pun intended).  This frontier town offers an array of 24/7 gaming facilities, featuring slots and live Blackjack, poker and Texas Hold’em tables.
