I went to Ruidoso, NM this weekend. They have a very nice Casino and Resort that we stayed at called "Inn of the Mountain Gods". First of all the room and view were AWESOME!!

Anyways - of course I went to the casino! Went there almost all day Saturday and about 3 hours Sunday before we left. All-in-all I walked away with obout 50 more dollars than I went in with! I brought $200 and never played past the first $100!! I "stayed alive" as they call it, for a long time :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I was up about $250-$300 at one point, but lost some, because I was having fun! Oh, and I was mostly playing Blackjack.

Just wanted to share that with everyone! :rotfl:

teehee, my hubby loves to play blackjack too.

I don't have much luck with gambling, but anyways, my hubby and I went to laughlin for our honeymoon, and he gambled and actually earned money, which was awesome! we basically ended up coming back home with most of our money, so his gambling basically payed for our honeymoon, lol!

Inn of the Mountain Gods - I love the name! I bet it was gorgeous!!!

LOL! I would have never gone to this casino if I hadn't had practice on the cruise I went on!

HAHA! Well it kinda did :( /emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> I was up and should have walked away!!! Or at least colored up (for those who don't know: trade in smaller amount chips for larger amounts to condense) when I was up by almost $300 just my winnings and kept playing with the initial $100! LOL! Oh well :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I love me some Blackjack! I am afraid to go gambling though, cause I couldn't stop myself and walk away if I needed to.

My bf and I love going to Vegas and Laughlin, but we never have a lot of luck. We both love blackjack, but we rarely come up. I also like the Wheel of Fortune slots. It's addicting! I've actually won money playing those.

"Inn of the Mountain Gods" sounds so beautiful. Do you have pictures?

The only casino I've been in, was in Kansas City. Way too noisy for me. Could only stay there for an hour or two.

I forgot the memory chip for my camera so I only had internal memory which holds all of 5 or 6 pics LOL! I have pictures of the mountains and the ski mountian...here are some googled pics of the hotel, I didn't take these.

(Oh yeah, this place was so nice, it has these awesome phones with screens, and my name was on the screen!)
