The Gold Dust casino on Deadwood's Main Street will open its doors again this summer.
After closing on New Years Eve, the Gold Dust will open this summer under new management.
Right now, the casino is undergoing a complete makeover. Peter DeMangus, the general manager, says three of its seven rooms will open by the end of this month. The rest by the end of the summer.
The goal is to re–energize the property to bring it back to its glory days. "Once the remodel is complete with the new wallpaper and carpet, ceilings and fixtures and everything," said DeMangus. "We're really excited about the way it's going to look and we think the town will really like it"
So far, 15 employees have been hired. DeMangus says 25 to 30 more staff members will be hired by the time the renovation is complete.
