Statement by sean demeule, vice president & general manager, on the reopening of ameristar casino hotel black hawk

While the amenities our customers have come to know and love may be somewhat limited for the time being, the ability to safely welcome back our team members and guests remains our top priority. With this in mind, we have been working closely with the Governor’s office, Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission, and Gilpin County public health officials to finalize comprehensive Phase I reopening protocols and new health and safety precautions. Our returning team members will be trained on these procedures and our guests will see reminder signage about them throughout the property. These new protocols include, but are not limited to, the following:


Social Distancing

  • We will limit capacity on our gaming floor.
  • The installation of floor decals and signage to strictly enforce social distancing guidelines in areas where lines typically form.
  • The number of slot machines available will be limited.
