The Isleta Casino and Resort reopened Wednesday after shutting down last Nov. 16th for the COVID-19 pandemic. This was the second time this year that Isleta shut down for the pandemic. Early last year the casino shut down in March and did not reopen until June 15.
New safety procedures and protocols are now in effect. The new operating hours are limited to 9 am to 12:30 am daily. All casino employees were tested before reopening and will be offered COVID vaccinations when available.
To enter a "proper mask" must be worn by all guests and employee. Gaiters and bandanas are not allowed. Masks with vents or valves are also not allowed. An outside vending machine will provide a mask if needed.
The gaming floor will maintain a limited capacity and bingo sessions will be limited to 128 players. All dining venues have reduced seating capacities.
The Isleta Casino is the first casino in Albuquerque to reopen. Other casinos that remain closed in the area are The Palace West Casino, which closed in March, Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel, which closed Nov. 14, and the Route 66 Casino Express, which closed Oct. 25.

On Monday the Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque opened its sportsbook and began taking bets on professional sports and on the University of New Mexico Lobos and the New Mexico State University Aggies. Sports betting is open every day 8 am to 1 pm.
The Isleta sportsbook is operating in a temporary location on the casino floor while construction continues on its new home near the food court.
Betting on in-state college teams is a major difference between Isleta Casino and most sports wagering across the nation. Most states have prohibited it by state laws. Santa Ana Star Casino, the other Albuquerque casino, does not accept bets on New Mexico college teams.

Isleta Resort & Casino is preparing to open a new food court this summer. It will feature two new eateries to the casino, Fatburger and Panda Express, along with Chili Ristra New Mexican cuisine, and Chill Coffee & Ice Cream Shop.
Isleta Resort & Casino will be the first New Mexico casino with a food court. Fatburger will be the first in the state and Panda Express will be the first inside a NM casino.
The food court is part of the ongoing $40 million renovation that began in 2017. Since then Isleta has opened new bingo and poker rooms, quadrupled the space in the Triple Sevens sports and dance bar, opened the entertainment showroom and introduced a new non-smoking gaming area.
