A brand new gaming resort in Deadwood is open for business. The lodge at Deadwood is attracting bigger conventions, more corporate events and entertainers from Las Vegas.
The resort opened back in December, but the official grand opening celebration is this month. Beyond a large casino, the lodge offers luxurious rooms, a restaurant, waterpark and more than 16,000 square feet of meeting space.
The lodge's general manager Monte Hartl says the resort will bring more business to Deadwood and the surrounding area.
The resort coasted nearly $50 million to build. Room rates this month start at $89 per night.
