Cripple Creek's Imperial Casino Hotel closes

March 9, 2010

CRIPPLE CREEK - The Imperial Casino Hotel in Cripple Creek shut down on Feb. 28 after years of financial struggles. It had filed for bankruptcy protection in November 2008 to continue operating.

The Imperial was one of the smaller casinos in Cripple Creek with 173 slot machines and no table games. It was located at 123 N. 3rd St.

It is the first casino in Cripple Creek to close since the Wild Horse Casino shut down in October, 2008, and it is the first casino in the state to close since Amendment 50 took effect last July 2nd. The amendment raised betting limits, expanded operating hours and added new games.

Cripple Creek Mayor Dan Baader said he was sorry to see the Imperial close, but feels the rest of the town was still in good shape.

"I certainly don't want to see another empty building, so I hope somebody is interested in it," Baader said.
