Casino was slow but we were there in the middle of the week. As all casinos are it was smokey from to many smokers. Needs better ventilation. Can't imagine how bad it would be on a busy weekend. But the tables and slots were somewhat generous. We left after four days, three nights and broke even for the stay. Had... More

I was only able to stay for a little bit, being a non-smoker. Had an issue with a bill sticking in the machine, staff immediately addressed my issue and I continued playing.

The Casino Apache is a fun casino connected to a gas station and convenience store. There's a small restaurant inside that had fabulous service. The casino is not huge, but very fun if you enjoy playing slot machines.

They have Many 'Name' Entertainers at Casino Apache, and although we don't care for all of that, many of our friends do.

We were driving around Ruidoso on our recent trip and stopped by the resort. The resort looks to be a full service destination (hotel, restaurants, casino). The place is very large and well kept. It appears to have high overhead so the game machines are a little stingy. All in all it is a fun. We saw several families there... More

One of the prettier casinos I've been in. Live dealers. Large poker room. Lots of Texas money in Ruidoso, so casino is well funded with many amenities. Great restaurants with beautiful views. Sits on a lake with. Zip line crosses the lake.

The Casino Apache is part of the Inn of the Mountain Gods just outside of Ruidoso. The whole facility is beautiful and well kept. The view from Wendell's lounge and out on the deck is one of the best in North America. No really, it is. The food is always good ad the service usually efficient. After you get into... More

Dealers, cards, real casino atmosphere. Decent bars and restaurants on site, although things do tend to be pricey out here. May not be enough for true casino or gambling aficionados, but still the best of Ruidoso's casinos.

We decided to kill time and check out the Casino Apache and The Inn of the Mountain Gods. Both casino's are too smokey for a non-smoker. We walked in and back out.
