I just want to play the tables and I’m not going to watch the show. Do I need to buy a pass?
During the summer months a pass is required for entry. Gerties is a not for profit venue, and all monies from Gerties are put back into the town through multiple initiatives. For more information on where the money goes visit our Community Relations page.
Is there a way for me to bring my kids just to watch the show?
Unfortunately Gerties is 19+ and those 18 and under are not allowed inside our venue.
Is there parking?
Yes – there is a free parking lot in front of our building.
Is Gerties wheelchair accessible?
Yes – but please feel free to reach out to management if you have any questions about the accessibility of Gerties and our facilities.
Does Gerties accept US dollars?
US dollars can be exchanged inside at our bank window.
Does Gerties accept credit/debit?
Gerties is a cash only facility. We have 2 ATM’s at the front of the building should you need to get cash.
Can I smoke inside Gerties?
No – Gerties is a smoke free venue. If you are going to smoke please go outside to the designated smoking area, and please do so off of the porch.
I’ve never gambled before, and I’m not sure how to play. Any recommendations?
If this is your first time sitting down at a table, you have come to the right place! Our dealers are known to be friendly and encouraging and are more than happy to teach you the rules of each game! Our table minimums are lower than most casinos making Gerties one of the least intimidating places to learn a new game!
Can I take pictures/video of the show?
We encourage you to sit back and enjoy the show – Gertie and her girls will have you singing and dancing along! However, there are parts of the show where you or someone you are with may get some special attention- and we encourage you to capture those moments on camera! Please no flash photography.
I would like to take photos or video footage for a media publication or film. Who should I contact?
If you are taking photos or video for any kind of media publishing, please visit our Media Page for guidelines.
I/we will be celebrating a birthday/anniversary/special occasion at Gerties. Is there anything extra that will make the night memorable?
If you are not afraid of the spotlight, you might be lucky enough to get a shout out from Gertie – or maybe even pulled on stage by one of her Gold-rush Girls. Please speak to management upon your arrival at Gerties and we will do our best to put in a good word with the Madame herself.
I don’t gamble and don’t frequent casinos. Why should I visit Gerties?
Gerties is unlike any modern day casino. Gaming, entertainment, and libations all take place in one room that makes you feel like you stepped into 1898. If you came to Dawson looking for that gold rush experience, this is it! Even if you just come in to have a brew, you can be sure to strike up some interesting conversations with locals, and be part of the excitement of dancers high kicking, folks winning big, and everyone having a good time!
I’ve seen people pay with Gerties playing chips around town. Do chips have monetary value outside the casino?
Gerties chips are their own currency in Dawson City! You can use them at most Dawson businesses. Feel free to keep your favourite chip as a souvenir!
Is there a tipping policy?
In Canada it is customary to tip bartenders and servers 15-20%. Tipping is encouraged at the gaming tables to show your appreciation of our friendly dealers!
I loved my visit to Gerties! Am I able to purchase souvenirs?
Yes! Souvenirs are available at our bank window and include swag such as clothing, glassware, garters, and more!
Are you open in the winter?
Yes! From October-April we are open on select weekends. You can view our Fall, Winter, and Summer hours on our Visit Gerties page!
