Domestic Sportsbooks In Albuquerque, NM

  • Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel
  • Isleta Casino & Resort
  • Inn Of The Mountain Gods Resort & Casino (3 hours south of Albuquerque)

The Santa Ana Star casino located just on the outskirts of Albuquerque, NM launched a domestic sportsbook where residents and visitors can wager on sports. Isleta Casino & Resort followed suit by opening up an in-person sportsbook of their own, giving Albuquerque sports bettors a second nearby option.

Inn of the Mountain Gods also features an in-person sportsbook but gamblers will be in for a bit of a drive as it is located three hours to the south of Albuquerque.

No state legislation was passed to allow domestic sports betting in New Mexico, but because of a legal loophole, tribal casinos found a way to legally accept bets on sports, and events. The Buffalo Thunder Casino (Santa Fe) started accepting bets on sports in March of 2019, but no longer advertise sportsbook services on their website.
