Very smokey

Smaller casino with not the greatest ventilation. Good for a quick visit. Friendly employees & convenient to the El Cajon area.

There is nothing good to say. The machines pay NOTHING. Ever since they got their liquor license it seems worse! Plus, if you are 30 or younger they ID you every time (even when it's the same bartender!). Maybe it has improved in the past year or so, but I won't be going there to find out

Machines are tight, hotel is miles from the casino. They only cater to Asians , if you're gringo, go to Barona. Bingo hosts ignore you, takes forever to get food order. All I all, Sycuan is a waste of time and money!

We love the changes made to the casino. We hadn't been there in a while and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely it is now. Great buffet too!

This casino gives you all the slots, tables and dinning places that your typical Vegas casino gives you. I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere here along with the friendly service that the attendants and servers give to the patrons. The gambling action here is good and guarantee that anyone visiting this Casino will enjoy themselves

This casino is ok. For the gambling I have watched shills bidding and winning and no one else. Other times gambling was ok. I once watched a man go down an entire row of machines and probably win at 20 or more slot machines in a row. Way too coincidental. Sycuan's casino is ok. Very smoky though not such great... More

I love the location and the surroundings. The food is great and so is their gift shop. For smokers this is great. But the air condition units does not help the non smokers much. And the main entrance is one of the smoking entrances.

I have been going to Sycuan Casino since it was just one small building with a few machines. I have watched it grow to a great place it is now. From a small cafeteria to the Dining Room it is now. I must like it...
