Sportsbook Regulation in New Mexico

Betting in New Mexico is overseen by the New Mexico Gaming Control Board. They are responsible for regulating race track casinos, bingo halls, and non-profit gambling. The board also oversees Class III Gaming on Indian tribal properties. 

Currently, there is no sports betting law in New Mexico. But that hasn’t stopped lawmakers giving it a good try. In January 2021, New Mexico HB 101 was introduced but is yet to be reviewed or signed. For now, all sports betting in New Mexico is done at a tribal casino sportsbook in the state. 

Here are some of the big-time sportsbook operators who may eventually go live in NM if online sports betting legislation is widened:

  • BetMGM
  • Caesars
  • BetRivers

Retail Sportsbooks to Visit in New Mexico

New Mexico has over 20 land-based casinos, all owned among 14 tribes. There are also five racinos offering pari-mutuel betting but no sportsbooks. 

Under the tribal gaming compact, the Tamaya Nation’s Pueblo of Santa Ana Tribe extended its offering in 2018 to include sports betting. You can place bets at New Mexico’s one operating sportsbook at the Santa Ana Star Casino and Hotel. 

Since then, several other retail sportsbooks have opened in New Mexico. The Sportsbook at Inn of the Mountain Gods launched in 2019, as did the Hilton Buffalo Thunder sportsbook. Isleta Resort & Casino opened its sportsbook facility in late 2019. 

  • Sportsbook at Santa Ana Star Casino-Hotel (Tamaya Nation’s Pueblo of Santa Ana Tribe)
  • The Sportsbook at Inn of the Mountain Gods (Mescalero Apache Tribe)
  • Hilton Buffalo Thunder Sportsbook (Pojoaque Pueblo Tribe)
  • Isleta Resort & Casino Sportsbook (Pueblo of Isleta)
  • The Book at Route 66 Casino-Hotel (Pueblo of Laguna)

New Mexico’s first sportsbook opened at the Santa Ana Casino Hotel in 2018. You can place bets on major US sports such as NFL, NHL, and MLB. College sports betting is also permitted. 

Most bets are made through self-service terminals (8 am-midnight). You can cash out winning bets in person with a ‘Sportsbook Writer’ or by mailing your tickets to the casino in Santa Ana Pueblo. 

In addition, the Santa Ana Star issues its own rewards card – Star Rewards – which lets you earn points every time you place a sports wager.
