The gaming facility offers a 72,000 square-foot casino, which features 800 slot machines and 10 table games.

Tesuque is the Spanish variation of a traditional Tewa language name for “village of the narrow place of the cottonwood trees.” The beauty of this magnificent landscape also contributed to the design and construction of the casino, with massive walls of windows giving every guest a front row seat to some of the most spectacular imagery that nature has to offer.
