Always nice to escape to the cool pines of Ruidoso and enjoy the casinos. People are friendly, happy to help and always give you a good luck gesture. Usually leave our money there, but enjoy the hospitable atmosphere.

My friends and I enjoyed an afternoon at the casino. Two out of three of us did not have much luck, but one of us was having all sorts of luck on her game. The staff were friendly and helpful. The casino was not smoky like many are. Will return when in town.

This casino is so much better than Billy the Kid, mainly because of the cleaner, fresher air. The cigarette smoke is not as thick, here. The staff are friendly and helpful and the gaming is great. I may not have hit "the big one" but I had a lot of fun. The location is great because downtown is accessible but... More

We really like this casino. It's not as big as the one at Inn of the Mountain Gods but has lots of slot machines! Also, has a great little restaurant that we love to eat at. Lots of fun!
