Overview

Dawson City’s world famous non-profit gambling hall is named after bona fide dance hall queen Diamond Tooth Gertie. During the Gold Rush of 1898, in order to distinguish herself from numerous Klondike kings and queens, Gertie Lovejoy wedged a sparkling diamond between her two front teeth. Any discomfort this caused paid dividends. Instead of working the creeks for her riches, Diamond Tooth Gertie made her fortune by mining the lonely prospectors who readily opened their gold pokes in return for her affections. In Dawson City today, Gertrude Lovejoy’s moniker lives on at the town-run Diamond Tooth Gertie's Casino.Replete with cancan dancers and a singing master of ceremonies named Gertie, Canada’s oldest gambling hall gives you a chance to re-live the heady days of Dawson’s Gold Rush era. With three nightly shows by Gertie and her Gertie Girls, Diamond Tooth Gertie's is today a fixture of fun-filled entertainment where patrons can enjoy a beverage while playing blackjack, roulette, Texas Hold'em poker and an array of glittering slot machines.

Walk in the door you have to pay from the look around what you can see from the door we passed. The can can show was going on stage. Ok! Looked like three gambling tables.

All the staff have great outfits! $15 CAD entrance and you can use the ticket all summer long 💕 so you don’t have to pay again the next time you go! CASH ONLY though for all the drink. No credit card no debits at all....More

This is another must do when in Dawson City. Great period entertainment in an authentic setting. I'm not a gambler but we really enjoyed the shows. There is a photo op with the dancers after each show. Enjoy!

Went to one of the night shows, the Ladies really put on a nice show, gives you a little idea of what the prospectors did for entertainment after a day of working their claims.

Gertie and girls put on a great show. Casino is small but fun and great cocktails. Fun place for a night out in Dawson.

There is not much to do in the evening in Dawson, so many people head here. You buy a $15 membership which is good all season. Then you can gamble and watch the show. It was corny but cute. Drinks were reasonably priced and there...More

No, they would find it boring. Given the gambling I don't think they let anyone in under age 19
