What is one of the newest poker room in Black Hawk, is also one of the nicest, with a plush, inviting atmosphere, giant TV screens everywhere, free goodies, and a generous free hotel promotion.
You can stay at the Isle of Capri for free, Monday through Thursday, by playing six hours of poker there. For comparison purposes, a search on Hotels.com for a slow Tuesday night in January (with nothing going on), showed room rates in Black Hawk starting at $68, for the Lady Luck, and $100 a night for the Isle.
While the poker room is (for reasons unclear), not on the Bravo Poker App, it does generate decent traffic, and had 4 tables running $1/2 limit on a recent Friday night.
For those of you unaware of Colorado’s poker rooms, there is a limit of $100 bet on each round. Therefore, most games in Black Hawk are a $1/2 Limit game, with $100 being the limit.

Disappointingly however, the games are all the $1 – $100 spread limit variety, with a $1 Mississippi Straddle game thrown in the loop too. One nice feature at the Isle is the scheduling of a regular Omaha game.
