First of all, to put this review in context - I gamble an average of once a month, and I only play blackjack. The reason I gave a one star rating to the slots has nothing to do with Pechanga in particular, it's just that anyone who thinks slot machines are "gambling" is an idiot. Slot machines are vacuum cleaners, they suck out your money. No gambler who knows the odds plays slots. I personally don't play poker, so other people will have to review that. Now on to Blackjack. I have never learned how to count cards. But I play Blackjack as it should be played. I only play Blackjack at Pechanga. That's because I only play at the $5 table, of which they only have one, but that table pays 3:2 on blackjacks, which no other casino in Southern California, as far as I can tell does. That payoff basically makes Blackjack an almost even odds game, with only the slightest house edge. They also follow all other standard Blackjack rules. The only drawback is that they don't offer surrenders, which, of course, nobody does, because it would destroy the house edge. The single deck table, with a $10 minimum, pays off 6:5 on Blackjack, taking away the edge card counters would get, though the fact that they even offer single deck Blackjack is pretty amazing. I have not found another casino in the area that does, with the exception of high limit. I have probably been to Pechanga playing at that table about 10 times. Every single time, simple fundamental play has allowed me to leave the casino with some profit. Last night, for example, started with about $60, and left the table with about $200 three hours later, after having paid for four or five drinks in the process. I know that sounds like peanuts, but I gamble to enjoy myself, not to make money. The extra money is like being paid to have fun. Good atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable dealers. Eclectic mix of people, but that's OK.

Been going to Pachanga when it operated out of a tent. Their new casino has everything that a five star casino has. Their players club give-a-ways are great, especially their free cruise certificates on NCL. There entertainment has been great with Tony Bennet, Donnie & Marie, Wynoa Judd, Boyz II Men etc. As far as winning I have won more jackpots there on slots, than all the other casinos that I have ever played at combined. I realize that it is all luck, but when you consider that you play to win...You want to play where you win. Pachanga offers you more opportunities to win...Just play wisely.

Have been to this place a few times but I'd say it's average as far as the slots payouts: (almost zero) I noticed something very interesting though: They used to advertise the "jackpots" daily, weekly and monthly on their website and they had it on an electronic billboard outside the casino as well but they're no longer doing so, I always wondered about the huge amounts sometimes advertised and wondered if that was the "jackpots" how much money was actually coming in; which had to be many, many times the amount; considering how that works at this and all other casinos which definitely seem to keep 99% plus of what they take but I observed how the "jackpot" amount changed on their website and it appears that wasn't actually jackpots but payouts if any so I wonder if they got caught doing that false advertisement? Perhaps the amounts they announced were even accurate? Oh well these places are not built on the backs of winners but rather on the backs of losers. However, I mostly go to Barona and it's NOT any better.

Take cell phones with you/expect to get lost. The place is huge. Lots of penny slots but they
close many down during the week. Buffet is good but they could replace the snow crab with dungenous. RV park is first class but attendents seem to have an attitude. Play the right slots and you can make money. They may be hard to find but they're there. I was there in May and will return.
