Nothing different from any other roadside casino. I've been several times but mainly go for the food at the little restaurant now.

The staff were anything but friendly. They all looked like zombies with blank looks on their faces, no reactions, no "small talk", very dull. There is no alcohol near tables or games!! Serious? If I'm going to lose money, let me at least get a buzz. The casino is also very small, one can circle around in 3 min. In... More

Was not what i was expecting when i pulled up but turned out to be fun after all. Though it was just a huge gas station but turns out to be a full casino thats linked to inn the mountain gods casino. So if you wanna just check out a smaller less crowded version of the inn just go here

The casino grounds are definitely beautiful--great view from the casino lodge overlooking a lake. They had a variety of slot machines, although I didn't win on any of them! I did enjoy the roulette table and the staff was friendly. Great buffet with champagne brunch on certain days. Definitely recommend!

Would not recommend this place for good customer service, everyone we encountered seemed to have an a big chip on his or her shoulder. Don't even get me started on the golf course employees! They are even worse.

Beautiful surroundings. The pond outside the casino is breathtaking. The view of the pond from inside the casino was heavenly. Really enjoyed the view. Not so much the gambling.

We spent most of our time in Ruidoso here at the casino. We play blackjack and usually only had to wait a short time for four chairs. It was fun at times and we liked the dealers. We ate most of our meals- breakfast and dinner at Smokey's Grill, in the casino. The food was excellent and well priced. Service... More

Good slots, friendly employees, smoke was not really bad even though it was pretty crowded. Always a fun stop even if I don't want away a winner. I like the self serve drinks which include juice, a very nice extra. Parking is plentiful and I feel safe getting into and out of the casino. With your player card you save... More
