I could never understand all the hoop la....Penchanga is my sis's favorite casino in Southern California. I have been to other Indian casinos and have one 15 minutes from the house. So I really didn't have any special reason to go other than it that was where everyone else wanted to gamble.

So I went....and I won! $2,000 (slots) ...the most I have ever won in all my gambling adventures....guess what Mother won $2,000 as well!! Needless to say it was a memorable trip for all.

Now this month Pechanga has sent us each 6 free nights! WOW!!! Of course we are going! My sister who did not win but is a club member also recieved 6 free nights.

The resort is beautiful, the food is good to great, the slots fun, and the poker room friendly! I personally like Texas Hold'em.

I highly recommend Pechanga Indian Casino...yes the slots are as tight as any I have played including Ceadar's Palace in Vegas (and others), Harrah's in Laughlin, Atlantic City, Reno (do they still gamble there? various cruise ships, or the two other Indian Casinos I have been to: San Manuel and Morongo. Additionally I had fun losing my money at the lovely Morongo Resort, but Pechanga is larger, the rooms as beautiful and has more variety of restaurants. Pala Casino is (6.67 miles) as well as Casino Pauma (10.66 miles) is close if you should feel your luck is not what it should be!

So I really can't imagine a better trip than going back to Penchanga!

My husband and I love going to visit many Casinos and on our first time there Pechanga was so much bigger then I thought. We had a wonderful panaramic view from our room and the food was savory at the Steakhouse we ate at! My husband loves Poker and he was happy as it was one of the biggest Poker rooms we have seen. I played my slots and left with a $1,500 jackpot!!! Not too Bad! One of the best trips we have had in a while. I would recommend this Casino to anyone looking to have a fun weekend getaway.

I have been gambling for 30 years, not a very good thing, but have won my share and lost double my share, but I have never felt like I was being ripped off as badly as being in Pechanga casino. The incentives dont come close to the losing time after time in this place. HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They run pachanga like a gang land place. My daughter got thrown out and almost handcuffed complaining a person next to her was blowing smoke in her face and she was surrounded by 6 security guards.
I was detained because the ticket I got from a slot machine was said to be bogus.
My wife was trying to talk one of my daughters away from a blackjack table, to go to dinner with us and two guards walked up and said if you dont stop bothering this girl we will escourt you out.
How does this soud like a friendly place to you. You might as well be in another country.
