Zia Park Casino in Hobbs, announced that it would be re-opening soon. They did not give an actual date to open but in a statement they did say soon.

We are excited to reopen Zia Park Casino in the coming days. While the amenities our customers have come to know and love may be somewhat limited for the time being, the ability to safely welcome back our team members and guests is our top priority. Stay tuned to social media for our opening date. We are grateful for the overwhelming support, patience, and understanding from our customers through these unprecedented times, and can't wait to welcome everyone back.

I know there are a lot of people in the area that have missed their trips to the casino. Many people have gone up to Ruidoso or have had to go to Oklahoma. The WinStar Casino in Oklahoma has been open for some time now.

I have a friend that lives in Hobbs and I have said  many times if the casino was open I would come get a room and hang out for the weekend just to get away for a little bit. I know my parents have missed the casino because on Friday night's they would have their date night over their or that's what they called it. I think that was just their excuse to go gambling. LOL

It's no secret I love to gamble and since it's been a minute since I have gotten to go to Las Vegas, I will probably make a trip.

Although it may be hard to get into for a while. I am sure they will probably operate at a limited capacity.
