POJOAQUE – Lightning flashes, thunder crashes and some lucky person caught playing the slots along Thunder Alley wins a big thank you reward from the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino.

This is but one of many surprises awaiting the throng of guests expected to visit New Mexico's largest resort and casino set to open Aug. 12.

Situated about 12 miles north of Santa Fe and just off NM 84/285 in Pojoaque, the enormous new resort nestled on 587 acres includes 390 Hilton rooms and suites, a 16,000-square-foot spa and a state-of-the-art casino.

A 66,000-square-foot event and conference center, indoor and outdoor pools, an Indian Cultural Center and seven restaurants, bars and lounges including the Red Sage Restaurant by renowned Chef Mark Miller are also included along with a 13,000 square-foot open-air promenade of shops and boutiques.

The Pueblo of Pojoaque and Hilton Hotels Corp. partnered to create Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino. The Las Vegas-style gaming casino includes 1,200 slot machines from a penny to $100, 22 table games and a 10-table poker room.

Buffalo Thunder Casino General Manager Mike Allgeier was most recently vice president of casino operations for Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Prior to that he was senior vice president of casino operations for the Las Vegas Hilton.
