Route 66 Casino - Albuquerque - New Mexico
There are seven rooms in all — though some don't operate full time, and only one has a full host of games. Still, each is worth a visit and has something to recommend it.
The first room I visited was Route 66 — the newest of the rooms in this area. It's a flashy new casino located about 30 minutes from downtown Albuquerque out west on Interstate 40 which parallels the classic old road Route 66 — hence the name of this casino. Like all New Mexico casinos, Route 66 is open from 8: The poker room struggles to attract players during the day, scheduling tournaments daily at 1: I played in the tournament. The level of play was about average for getting a bunch of buddies over for a local tournament.
There were a few regulars who knew the rules but I didn't notice anyone who seemed particularly good, but then again, I didn't place in the money so who am I to judge. We had 18 players on the Saturday I played. The room is very nicely appointed, with a bar right in the room, comfortable chairs, a well-carpeted and clean floor, cushioned roller-based chairs, and slick artificial felt.
There were a bunch of old-fashioned paintings on the wall. There was room for many more tables than the two they had going while I was there. I think the place could probably accommodate eight or nine tables — though I never saw more than two going at one time during my three visits to the room.
The rake is standard for New Mexico: One dollar is taken out for the bad beat and high hand jackpots. One was hit while I was there. They also have a morning promotion: An experienced professional, trying very hard to bring in players, ran the room. There seem to be more games in the area than are needed for the total number of players. That's not necessarily bad for players — since it means that the rooms routinely try one promotion or another to attract them.
Still, it can be frustrating not to have a regular room with a bunch of games all of the time. There are some great meal deals here. They had a Johnny Rockets with a reasonably priced menu. There was a buffet that I tried which was fantastic — truly. This event will be held on Thursday, September 27th in Legends Theater.
