Sycuan Casino Resort has officially opened its doors and you do not want to miss out on this revamped paradise! After a private, media-only, ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 26, Sycuan Casino Resort had a Grand Opening Party on March 27 for their loyal guests, gamers and the general public. The party featured live music from traditional Bird Singers, complimentary food tastings from several of the new eateries on the property and a $10,000 cash prize! But the fun isn’t over! There are still so many chances to win through the month of April with Sycuan’s $200,000 Spring Into Cash event. Join Sycuan every Thursday beginning April 18 through May 23 for your chance to win up to $2,000 every hour from noon to 11 p.m. But that’s not all! Every Thursday at midnight, one lucky winner will receive $10,000 in cash!

If you thought the Grand Opening Party sounded exciting, wait till you hear about all of the amazing new amenities Sycuan Casino Resort has to offer. Sycuan Casino Resort is about to be your new destination for an entertaining and luxurious staycation. Just about a half-hour from downtown San Diego, Sycuan Casino Resort is equal parts rural retreat and destination playground. “We have some really exciting, elite partnerships that we know guests will love. We’ve worked hard to create a Vegas-style environment that people won’t have to travel far for,” says Andrew Kerzmann, VP of Hotel Operations. “We have so much more that we can now offer to our loyal guests who have been coming for years, and something different for all of our new guests.” So, what are all these new and exciting additions, you ask? Well, to start off, Sycuan Casino Resort has just added a 12-story hotel tower, complete with 302 guest rooms and 57 luxury suites with all of the amenities including a fabulous multilingual staff and concierge. “This team has been incredible in helping us achieve such amazing results,” says GM Dinius. “Sycuan’s team has worked hard to create a customer service standard that is unlike anything else you would experience in this area.”

In addition to the rooms, Sycuan Casino Resort offers over 20,00 square feet of indoor event space and over 22,000 square feet of outdoor event space. As well, the casino received an exciting revamp! “We are literally doubling the size of the casino,” says Dinius. “We’ve added a state-of-the-art, High-Limit poker room, a ton of new games and slots…from a gaming perspective, we really are checking all the boxes.” Another exciting feature is the fact that they now offer the largest, advanced filtration, non-smoking wing in San Diego that includes an array of slot machines, table games and dining options so that guests can be comfortable wherever they choose to play.  

And let’s not forget about food! Sycuan Casino Resort now has 15 different eateries ranging from casual buffet to fine dining. Oh, and don’t worry—there’s a Starbucks here, too. The “unCommons,” their fast-casual eatery center, features San Diego fan-favorites like Hodads, Phil’s BBQ and Lucha Libre.

Finally, let’s talk about their Retreat Pool and Ritual Spa. With an immense lazy river, swim-up bar, and oversized daybeds and cabanas, DJs and pool parties, you’ll want to spend your entire summer here. After a long day, head on over to the Ritual Spa to decompress in Sycuan’s full-service luxury spa.

Sycuan Casino Resort is the new place to be. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, the chance to play at the casino or to party by the pool, Sycuan has created an oasis for any type of vacationers.
