Quite suprised at the size of this casino! Table games and plenty of slots, including many new ones. Dealers quite friendly. Steady crowd, but not "crowded". Easy to get into ... no parking garage or extensive walking.

There are three casinos in Ruidoso. The one everyone thinks of is at the Inn of the Mountain gods. Casino Apache is a much smaller venue that only has slot machines. So the bad news is, there are only slot machines to play - the good news is the slots are looser with more actual bells and whistles. If all... More

Hotel is great and grounds are beautiful - hotel overlooks a pretty lake and mountains, restaurants are good, BUT Casino Apache is nasty, nasty. I would rate the Hotel high, but this review is about the Casino. STRONG odors greet you before you enter - warning you away - I should have listened! We fought on and entered casino and... More

While I didn't use the casino for gaming the facility is "state of the art" and very well put together. There is plenty of art and Native american history at this facility to enjoy.

The entire hotel and casino is just too smoky for anyone sensitive to tobacco smoke. This is a stereo typical casino with all of the characters, older folks with walkers, down on their luck types, etc. Not up to par with the nice casinos in Vegas for sure.

Nice casino, located on one end of a busy travel center. We were surprised at the size of it, expecting it to be smaller than it really is. We won some, we lost some...but we had a good time!
