Ute Mountain Casino is Committed to Responsible Gaming
Ute Mountain Casino has a long-standing and continuing commitment to responsible gaming. We want everyone who gambles at our casino to be there for the right reasons – to simply have fun. We believe that all entities involved in legal wagering have an obligation to promote responsible gaming and the prevention of underage gambling. For most people, gambling is a fun, recreational activity which they are able to enjoy without losing control. However for some people gambling can become a serious problem, both for themselves and for their family, friends, and those concerned about them.
Colorado's Responsible Gaming Position
The Colorado Gaming Association (CGA) defines problem gambling as any gambling behavior negatively impacting the lives of individuals, resulting in serious personal, financial, or legal consequences. Problem gambling takes two major forms: compulsive gambling and underage gambling, which affect both guests and employees. CGA believes problem gambling is a serious issue that deserves a proactive response from the casino industry. CGA is taking positive steps to address problem gambling because we do not want this behavior to harm our customers, employees, business operations, communities or industry. We have committed human and financial resources to promote education and awareness of compulsive gambling among our guests and employees. We have put in place policies and practices to deter underage gambling and discourage compulsive gambling. Our goal is to promote and support, to the fullest extent practical, responsible gambling behavior at every member casino of the Colorado Gaming Association.

Casinos Are NOT For Children
Casinos are NOT for our kids. You must be 21 years of age to gamble or enter the casino. You must be 18 years of age to play BINGO. We do not hesitate to uphold the laws concerning the legal gambling age in each state. We want all of our customers to have an enjoyable time at our property, but we will not condone breaking the law.
