We wanted to go to a casino and this was the closest. It's very small, there's no tables and I couldn't find video roulette which is my favorite. But we played some video poker for a bit and it was fun. New Mexico casinos do not allow alcohol on the floor of the casino, but there was a lady walking...
This place is cute and campy. It's a retro casino, not everyone likes that, but I do. They do have some more modern machines though. All in all I thought it was cute. Like I said, it's all in matter of taste. Some like retro, some prefer modern and that's all good.
The horse racing was what one would expect. The casino slots were too tight. I didn't see anyone winning. The restaurant food was decent the service was terrible. We actually had to wait to get our check while the server played on her phone.
Casino located next to Ruidoso Downs race track. Very small and smokey from the smokers. Not good ventilation. No tables games and older slot machines. Definitely not not a gamblers destination. stayed less than an hour.
The atmosphere is so old, drab, and disgusting that it was not an enjoyable experience. There was trash such as drink cups, cigarette butts and ashtrays, and discarded paper left all around the slot machines. The cigarette smoke was so thick that, even as a former smoker, it was choking me. The games were okay but they need some updating....
