New Year’s revelers packed the house at Sandia Resort & Casino, where a few people rang in the new year with thousands of dollars in winnings.
One reveler hit the jackpot on the first slot machine she tried for the night. “This is a good sign of what the new year will bring,” she said.
Others danced the night away to the sold-out performance by Blu Sol Band at Tlur Pa Lounge, while some took selfies at a photo booth or mingled in the crowd wearing New Year’s Eve hats and blowing into noisemakers.
