Deadwood Gaming Numbers Start 2020 Up Over 12 Percent

DEADWOOD, S.D. – According to statistics released recently by the South Dakota Commission on Gaming, the January 2020 gaming handle showed a 12.14 percent increase, with slot machine handle increasing by 12.18 percent when compared to January 2019. The table game handle was up by 11.55 percent when compared to 2019 January’s table game numbers. Deadwood gaming operators rewarded players with $1,699,246 in “free-play” for the month of January, leaving taxable adjusted gross revenues of $8,056,890 for January 2020.

“What an incredible beginning for 2020,” said Mike Rodman, executive director of the Deadwood Gaming Association. “January’s gaming numbers start our year out on a very strong foundation.”

Deadwood is asking the legislature to put the question of sports wagering on the November ballot through SJR 501 for the voters of South Dakota to decide, which has already cleared the South Dakota Senate.
