The Triple Crown Casinos includes the Brass Ass Casino, Midnight Rose Hotel and Casino, and McGills Hotel and Casino. Triple Crown Casinos have a large selection of casino games, a variety of dining choices, multiple covered parking spots, comfortable accommodations, and friendly staff.

However, these are not what make the Triple Crown Casinos one of the foremost casinos in Colorado. The reason Triple Crown Casinos are unsurpassed is the casino’s belief in responsible gambling. Colorado gambling laws help to ensure responsibility while gambling and Triple Crown Casinos supports these requirements 100%.

Triple Crown Casinos does not want any of their customers to experience problem gambling. Problem gambling is a behavior that disrupts a major area of your life. These major areas can include:

  • Vocational- job/career
  • Social- friends/family
  • Physical- health
  • Psychological- mental health

Problem gambling can include compulsive or addictive gambling where a desire to bet more money and chase losses become a pattern of behavior. This behavior can lead to severe consequences that can be avoided.

Triple Crown Casinos suggest the following resources for anyone who may be struggling with problem gambling to prevent any serious consequences.

Helpline

The first step may be to call the 24-hour helpline at 1-800-522-4700 which is confidential. This helpline has trained professionals who can help.

Problem Gambling Coalition

This coalition based in Colorado is an affiliate of the National Council on Problem Gambling, Inc. It hopes to increase awareness of problem gambling while offering treatment and education on the subject.

The Triple Crown Casinos support this mission and honor the coalition’s voluntary self-exclusion program. The coalition working with the Colorado Gaming Association has created this program to allow you to remove yourself from marketing lists, slot club memberships, and revoke any check-cashing privileges at all of the casinos in Colorado.

You have to complete a self-exclusion form which can be downloaded at the Problem Gambling Coalition of Colorado website. This step can prevent any one suffering from problem gambling having access to a casino in the state of Colorado.
