Fodor's Expert Review Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall

Dawson City Casino

Adults-only Gerties presents live entertainment and high-energy performances, including a scintillating cancan three times nightly during the summer. This community nonprofit is the only authentic, legal gambling establishment operating in the entire North (it's also the oldest gambling hall in Canada), though the scene is mostly slots along with a few gaming tables. And there really was a Diamond Tooth Gertie—Gertie Lovejoy, a dance-hall queen who wore a diamond between her two front teeth.
