My boyfriend and I gambled a bit and won some money. We were having a good time playing the slot machines and drinking soda. When we went to cash out the cashier was friendly and nice. However, the staff on the floor were rude, especially this one floor employee! I found a prize from one of the toy machines and... More

This small casino is adjacent to the Ruidoso Downs horse race track. While the personnel are very friendly, the casino is one of the smokiest casinos anywhere in the U.S. It has a small number of slot machines of all denominations and a small bar and off track betting area.

This casino is rather small but the machines were very good to us. It could use some updating, chairs worn and torn and since it was small it was hard to walk around between machines. That being said we would still go again.

Hidden away at Ruidoso Downs this place was pretty cool. Much better than our experience at the Inn of The Mountain Gods. Old machines, newer machines, and not crowded at all. We went to the Inn once ...just once. We went here 3 times within a 24 hour period and did pretty good. Sign up for the players club and... More

We loved the entertainment, and the other guests are as friendly as the wait staff. Don't be surprised to meet other guests who live near your home town, like we did. The food was pretty good. It took a while to get our prime rib the way we ordered it, but the restaurant manager made sure we got what we... More

No one in our group won any money. Ate at the racetrack food was ok. The casino is small. Parking is not very good even for handicapped vehicles.
