The Brass Ass Casino, Cripple Creek

#3 of 6 in Fun & Games in Cripple Creek
Located inside one of the city’s most historical buildings, the Brass Ass Casino features old town street scene décor, including street lamps, western building facades and the original Cripple Creek lighted sign from H.H. Rosser’s Pool Hall. This Colorado casino is named after the painted wooden brass ass in the table games room – one of the original brass donkeys that launched boats with a well-placed kick at the 1893 World Exposition in Chicago.

The Brass Ass Casino offers live action Blackjack, High Five Poker, Craps, 3-Card Poker and Roulette. Tables are open 24 hours 7 days a week. It’s the oldest casino in Cripple Creek, but we offer the most up-to-date video poker and slot machines, plus the largest selection of nickel slots of any casino in town!

If you are looking for a quick bite to eat, check out the Miner’s Pick in the lower level of the Brass Ass. You can pick up a slice of pizza, freshly made salads, sandwiches and much more in just a few minutes. Pick from a great selection of specialty beverages and hot menu items. The Miner’s Pick is the best choice for those on the run!

  • We won our first big win here around 1993 ($1250, was a lot of money to us back then). Really fun place in 2019. Still small casino floor but, everyone is nice and ensured we were having a good time. We lost but had fun time!
  • Miners Pick is a great place for a last minute meal. Good food for sure. Service is very responsive, and happy to see ya. Also has available entrance for the kids.
