CRIPPLE CREEK – The Wild Horse Casino, which opened in 2004, has permanently
closed its doors. Sixty two employees were let go. The casino is the first
victim of declining gambling revenues in Cripple Creek, which many casino owners
blame on a combination of the smoking ban, high gasoline prices, and the general
Casino owners are hoping Amendment 50 will improve revenues, but Wild Horse
general manager Todd Fred said it would be too late for his casino. "Even if it
passes, it won't have an effect on us until July (2009). We just weren't able to
wait until July."
