Nambe Pueblo to open slots-only casino Sunday
SANTA FE (AP) — Nambe Pueblo will open its first casino Sunday.
The small, slots-only casino about 16 miles north of Santa Fe will be open to the public from 6 p.m. to midnight Sunday, ending years of negotiations and planning. Nambe Pueblo has been talking about getting into the casino business for 20 years. Initial plans were for a 50,000-square-foot building with 500 slot machines and a theme park.
The Nambe Falls Casino is a fraction of that size at only 7,310 square feet and features 180 slot machines.
The Nambe casino is just south of Pojoaque Pueblo’s Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino, which has 1,200 slot machines and 18 tables for games such as blackjack and roulette.
