Bronco Billy’s


Bronco Billy’s is one of the original gaming properties that opened for business in October 1991. Bronco Billy’s prides itself on outstanding customer service and boasts a loyal following of both local and out-of-town players.

It is regarded as one of the premiere examples of the Colorado gaming experience. Bronco’s, with its latest signature expansion, now features more than 800 slots, 10 blackjack tables, craps, roulette and 3 card poker, making it one of the largest establishments in town. Bronco Billy’s also is a place where players win plenty of money, paying over $30 million in jackpots in 2015. In addition, Bronco Billy’s is known for its daily cash drawings that rack up to over 300 every month. “Lots of people come to Cripple Creek, but the WINNERS come to Bronco Billy’s,” said General Manager Marc Murphy.

Despite undergoing nine major expansions, the casino has retained the same friendly atmosphere. In fact, Bronco Billy’s has snagged many top Oscar awards in the “Best of Cripple Creek” contests, sponsored by The Mountain Jackpot (TMJ) newspaper. Plus, a number of the company’s managers/employees have won top honors. In addition, Bronco Billy’s was named as the town’s best casino for four consecutive years, according to the annual “Best of the Springs” contest sponsored by the Colorado Springs Gazette newspaper. Billy’s also was voted “Best Casino” by The Colorado Springs Independent readers.

Hungry for more than action? Bronco Billy’s sports five restaurants and a snack bar. They have all of your cravings covered! Try the legendary 49 cent breakfast at the Home Café; enjoy fresh-made Mexican food at Baja Billy’s or authentic Asian food at Pho54; and don’t forget to treat yourself to a juicy steak, cooked to perfection in The Steakhouse. In addition, grab a snack at The Home Plate or relax in the only Tap Room in town. The Tap Room features the acclaimed BierWerks beer of Woodland Park in the Tap Room for the beer connoisseur, plus a number of non-alcoholic choices. Some of the favorite selections from this locally-made beer include Helles Blonde Lager and the Intimidator Dark Lager. The Tap Room also serves bratwurst, a Wisconsin Cheese Crock, homemade pretzels and other favorite BierWerks food selections. Dine indoors or enjoy the fresh air from the outdoor patio seating.

There’s a better option for banquets, fund raisers, receptions, holiday parties, and more in The Pioneer Banquet Room. A former part of the old Gold Rush casino, the Banquet Room is beautifully updated with three 70” TVs that can be used for any presentation. When you come to the room, take a peek up at the Pioneer Room sign. This is a sign from the Gold Rush refurbished for the room.

Also, spend the night at one of our charming 24 hotel rooms updated for modern conveniences, while still maintaining the historic look of this revered property. In addition, Bronco Billy’s is getting closer with its plans to re-open the famous outdoor 800-seat Palladium Amphitheater, the jewel of Cripple Creek for concerts, performances and a variety of shows. In the past, the Palladium hosted such nostalgic acts as Stephen Stills, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Little Feet and Jefferson Starship, as well as many festival activities. The casino will work with the community in holding as many events as possible.

As the town celebrates 25 years of gaming, Bronco Billy’s General Manager Marc Murphy reigns as the only operator who has manned the same casino in Cripple Creek since the beginning of limited stakes gaming. That sounds impressive, but what’s really impressive is that the casino has employees that began at the start of gaming and are still with Bronco Billy’s Casino. Bronco Billy’s has gained a reputation for treating their customers and employees with great appreciation. “We are where we are today because of the employees we have on our team,” said Murphy. Bronco Billy’s is also a strong community supporter and participates in several key city events, such as Donkey Derby Days, the Salute to American Veterans and the Ice Fest.

With summer finally here, Bronco Billy’s is doing what they can to make “Being indoors GREAT” this summer with $500,000 in cash up for grabs! “We’ve created ways for our players to fish, hike and golf TRUE Colorado Style!” said Murphy. Impressively, the casino gave away over $30 million in jackpots in 2015 and hopes to beat that number this year. In case the $30 million plus in jackpots isn’t enough, come in for the daily cash drawings to get even more of your share of cash. For Great Food… Great Fun… Great Friends… go to Bronco Billy’s Casino.
