Hickok’s casino

Hickok's Casino Hotel in Deadwood, South Dakota

This casino does not offer live table games or poker. However, Hickok’s offers an Interblock video blackjack machine that hits on all 17’s, allows double down on anything, double after the split and surrender. The video Three Card Poker machine is no longer available at Hickok’s.

Hickok’s video poker

Hickok’s video poker is as bad as it gets. It is only slightly better than the best video lottery games. The best game is 15/10 Deuces Wild (94.82%). Other dismal games include 10/8/5 Bonus Poker (94.18%), 6/5 Jacks or Better (95.5%), 6/5 Double Double Bonus (94.7%) and Joker Poker (94.27%). These games offer poor returns, even by Deadwood standards. If you play here, we recommend the video blackjack machine.

Hickok’s smoking lounge

Hickok’s offers a smoking lounge in the back of the casino. It allows players to take a smoking break without having to leave the building. Guests may not bring alcohol into the smoking lounge.

Hickok’s players club and promotions

Hickok’s offers no published promotions and no player’s club. Considering the low returns on video poker, you may want to give action to a different casino that rewards play.
