About Us

About Us

At Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel, “New Mexico’s Best Bet,” we became the first Native-American casino to operate in New Mexico, opening our doors in 1993. Growing from only 64 slot machines, today we feature more than 1,600 machines independently certified as the “Loosest Slots in New Mexico” by Strictly Slots® Magazine. In addition, we feature over  20 table games, and offer the best odds and pay tables for Video Poker in New Mexico.

Visiting

We are located just minutes north of Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We offer a fun and friendly casino experience with an infusion of New Mexican charm. Reflecting the cultural authenticity and timelessness of the great Southwest, we are an easily accessible regional destination for entertainment, excitement and good, old fashioned value.

To enhance your visit, find out about our Pueblo Partners including Hyatt Tamaya, Santa Ana Golf Course, Twin Warriors Golf Course and Santa Ana Pueblo.
