This town made it's name on a murder

It was the murder of Wild Bill Hickok. In the #10 Saloon. The door handles are pistols. Sadly it is closed right now and there is a new one across the street. In the new one they do a re-enactment of the death of Wild Bill everyday on the odd hours. Yes this is where the dead man's hand comes from. Black aces and black 8's. The 5th card is debatable.

Gambling

Um, yes it is legal. It is all over! This is the bad boy town! Up until 1980 their was a brothel openly running in the town. The IRS shut it down, not the locals.
