DEADWOOD, S.D. – According to statistics released recently by the South Dakota Commission on Gaming, the December 2019 gaming handle showed a 5.21 percent increase, with slot machine handle increasing by 5.98 percent when compared to December 2018. The table game handle was down by 3.78 percent when compared to 2018 December’s table game numbers. Deadwood gaming operators rewarded players with $1,598,434 in “free-play” for the month of December, leaving taxable adjusted gross revenues of $7,613,733 for December 2019.

“December was another strong month for Deadwood gaming,” said Mike Rodman, executive director of the Deadwood Gaming Association. “December’s gaming numbers pushed the gaming increase to 3.64% for 2019, the strongest annual increase since 2012.”

Deadwood will ask the legislature again this year to put sports wagering on the November ballot for South Dakota voters to decide.
