It's been a bit more than 10 years so this may be outdated. I found the areas in and immediately around the city casinos uncomfortable; I felt like I was being eyed by pickpockets and muggers among the folks there, but did not get approached. I would take precautions if I went back, and I would not go alone. I think there are one or two more upscale casinos than the ones we visited, but I don't have any info on them.

I think the old fort is very worth a daytime visit.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

We stayed at the La Concha Resort. They had a small casino there. I have some info about it in my blog:

(you will need to scroll down a bit to find that particular entry)

We enjoyed playing there and would like to go back--the hotel was very nice. They did give out a lot of match play coupons...

The stick calls were in Spanish but you don't really have to understand much if you can see the dice. It was actually fun. I don't think everyone knew English (or used it) but enough of the folks know it...

That was easy--they gave everyone who asked at the front desk (I think you were supposed to be a guest) three $5 match plays. I collected them every time I saw new folks at the desk. They all spoke English.

They also passed match plays out at the craps table for something--I didn't really know why (maybe once and hour or so???), but I took them!
