Sioux Falls has come home with another prestigious award!

A survey sent out Friday morning gave national honors to the city of Sioux Falls for “Best City To Rob A Casino”!

“It’s just a great honor to beat out some great cities. That’s the Sioux Falls way. All we do is win, win, win,” said Mayor Mike Huether.

Sioux Falls squeezed out the award from 2 top gambling cities in the country.

Las Vegas and Atlantic City usually top the charts, but after a great year of casino robbing, the largest city in South Dakota ran all the way to the bank.

“It’s actually the reason I moved here! Just a great city to rob casinos in. I can’t be any happier,” said one casino robber we spoke with.

“It’s a great start to the year in the award column, and with spring right around the corner we expect casino robberies to increase. So those figures should contribute to our figures for next year! We’re very excited,” said a representative from the Sioux Falls Police Department.

Sioux Falls, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno, and Deadwood round out the top 5.
