In the Colorado municipality of Black Hawk, Monarch Casino Resort has reported that the passage of amendment 77 represents a ‘significant advancement’ that will put the city on par with other gaming destinations.
The organisation expressed its appreciation to residents, as well as to the Black Hawk City Council, for endorsing the passage of the Amendment in November 2020.
This saw the adoption of an order allowing unlimited bet limits, as well as a resolution approving a number of new casino games, including baccarat, keno and pai-gow tiles, along with various side bets for table games. It is predicted that the reforms will come into force on May 1, 2021.
Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Monarch, John Farahi, commented:
“We recently began the phased opening of our all-new Monarch Casino Resort Spa Black Hawk, which represents a significant investment in and commitment to the Black Hawk community.
“We believe November’s state-wide passage of Amendment 77 and the concurrent approval by the voters of the city of Black Hawk of the local ballot measure, followed by today’s city council actions, represent a significant advancement for the entire Black Hawk gaming industry and the city’s long-term economic success.
“The changes to casino game regulations in Black Hawk will bring the city on par with other gaming destinations and greatly improve the attractiveness of our drive-to market for guests across the front range of Colorado.
“Our ability to offer guests a broader array of casino game choices on our newly expanded casino floor will further elevate the Monarch standard of excellence already on display. These changes will also generate additional tax revenue for the city and the state of Colorado.”
