The Lodge at Deadwood received five awards in the 2014 "Best of the Black Hills" contest. For the third year in a row, the Lodge at Deadwood received the awards for "Best Casino", "Best Hotel", and "Best Overall Restaurant". The Lodge also received the most votes in the categories of "Best Sports Bar" and "Loosest Slots".
The Best of the Black Hills contest is organized by the area's largest local newspaper, the Rapid City Journal. For a two week period, people were able to cast their votes for their favorite businesses in numerous categories. The category award winners were determined by over 15,000 votes through a third party voting website.
"We are honored to receive an amazing five category awards in this year's contest!" stated Troy Ihde, Director of Casino Marketing for the Lodge at Deadwood Gaming Resort. "To be voted the Best in these categories, many for the past three years, wouldn't be possible without our amazing staff focused on meeting and exceeding guest expectations."
