New Mexico’s Indian casinos offer an assortment of table games and electronic gaming machines. Additionally, slot machines are allowed at the state’s racetracks as well as at about 40 various fraternal and veterans clubs.
New Mexico gaming regulations require that electronic machines at racetracks and fraternal/veterans organizations return a minimum of 80% to a maximum of 96%.
New Mexico’s Indian tribes do not make their slot machine payback percentages a matter of public record but the terms of the compact between the state and the tribes require all electronic gaming machines to return a minimum of 80%.
Unless otherwise noted, all New Mexico Indian casinos are open 24 hours and offer: blackjack, craps, roulette, video slots and video poker. Some casinos also offer: Spanish 21, mini-baccarat, poker, pai gow poker, three card poker, four card poker, Caribbean stud poker, let it ride, ultimate Texas hold ‘em, Mississippi stud, casino war, big 6 wheel, keno, bingo and off track betting. The minimum gambling age is 21 for the casinos and 18 for bingo or pari-mutuel betting.
Please note that all New Mexico casinos are prohibited from serving alcohol on the casino floor. If a casino serves alcohol it can only be consumed at the bar and not in the casino itself.
