A Mini-Las Vegas Strip

By Daniel Michaels, Feb 14th 2007
The land-based casino era is pretty much at its edge. Nevertheless, the native Tigua tribe wants to obtain authorization to build another land based casino in New Mexico.

After having its Texas gambling activities banned five years ago, in 2002, the Indian tribe from the Lone Star State is committed to reconstruct and carry on with its business success in southern New Mexico. So far, the major difficulty is that Sunland Park Race Track and Casino, concurring with the possible Tigua casino, is only 15 miles away from the proposed place and wants to avoid an overdose of land-based casinos in the area.

The Tigua tribe's previous land based casino in Texas was extremely prosperous. Beginning only with bingo and then switching to slot machines in the mid 90', the tribe casino attracted about 100,000 gamblers each month for a pretty long period of time. The annual profits produced by the tribe from its gambling businesses alone attained approximately $60 million those years.

Unfortunately, in the year 2002 Texas court decided to close the casino for breaking gambling laws. Meanwhile, the tribe has updated and created new strategies to reopen nearby New Mexico. But, will the Tigua Indians be approved into New Mexico with their land based casino project?

Until now, the state is in the middle of reevaluating the casino incomes and location and its influence on the state itself. The tribe is not the only one that wants to transform the state into a land based casino midpoint, a sort of mini-Las Vegas Strip.
