This small racino is centrally located in the heart of Albuquerque however that is not necessarily a plus. The slots are mostly modern games that have several denominations to be bet but mostly pennies. The table games are non existent with the exceptions of video blackjack, craps and roulette. However there are no live dealer table game taking away from players who prefer having a live dealer.Customer service is decent. The staff is usually very helpful. They offer complimentary soft drinks as well as coffee and most time a server will pass by with the drink cart or if not the fountain machine is not to far from you. The players club is pretty standard you get your card you earn points and you may earn free play as you go. One thing is with the players card there is no tier levels and you are eligible for discounts on food court, buffet and other services immediately. The atmosphere of the casino is small somewhat smoky and can sometimes make uneasy due to some of the "colorful patrons" it attracts. There is more to do aside from gamble in the casino. There are two restaurants and a food court. The food court is very affordable and the food is good quality. It also helps that you get a discount using your players card. The smaller restaurant offers different special each night including all you can eat prime rib for a competitive price. The high rollers have a luxury dining option in the triple crown room.This is a top quality restaurant that offers several choices in steaks and various other options. Be warned though a plates can run you anywhere from 65 to 120 dollars a plate however they usually offer couples deal for various holiday celebrations. This casino has a spacious bar and race book area outside of the casino. The bar is nice and offers affordable drink options. You can also bet on horse races from across the country or even watch live racing from the patio during the live race season.

Still the dirtiest casino I have ever been to. It is in one of the worst parts of town and seems like a rough crowd.

I gave it 2 stars for the drinks because they have free Dr Pepper.

This place is the dirtiest casino I have ever gone to not only in New Mexico, but in the whole U.S. It really needs lots of improvement in all areas.
