“Very Sketchy Casino”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We have been to this Casino a couple of times now and each time we have gone it seems like the place attracts more and more sketchy type of cliental. This last week when we went it was so bad that our friends left after only being there a couple hours and soon after that my wife felt so uncomfortable that she asked to leave as well. They allow people in there 18 and over, which seems to attract a lot of the area gang looking “kids” that were constantly “eyeing” you and if you tried to sit down at a slot machine, they would tell you that it was taken. My wife received non-stop inappropriate stares from many of these guys and it became just too much to take. I think this will be or final visit to this casino and we will stick to the cleaner and safer locations.

“Good spot for poker”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

They have a 1/3 game there and it is pretty soft. You get a lot of locals and guys up from Palm Springs etc., and it is pretty friendly too. It is not as bit or as good as Perchanga where there is a wider range of games and way more general casino stuff going on.

“need larger no - smoking area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Nice casino overall but same complaint as with many casino's the no smoking section was way undersized and did not have the newest most popular machines. It seems like many casino's put older machines in the no smoking area and then use that as a means of saying that area is not heavily used.

“A good waste of time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

There isn't anything amazing about the casino. Nothing that screams, "You must see this place!" However, if you happen to be in the Palm Springs area, Morongo is your best bet for gambling. It is deinitely the prime gambling location in the area. If you tons of slots, and a big table area- you will have a good time. My biggest criticism is the lack of variety in the table games. Only 2 Three Card Poker tables, among dozens of BlackJack and Spanish 21 tables - most of which were empty. It was also a little weird that the table minimums were 10$ on a Monday morning. This may be the new normal in casinos, but I was hoping to find a couple of 5$ (I'm a cheapskate) tables to waste a few hours.

“Casino too smoky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Clean and broad selection of games; didn't win money, which is fine, but I lost so quickly, I didn't even get my entertainment value. It was just as well since the smoke quickly gave me a headache and I had to leave, anyway.
