Celebrating Success as San Diego’s Favorite

One of Jamul Casino’s top reasons to celebrate is its success as one of the region’s leading gaming destinations.  Jamul Casino became an instant favorite among San Diegans when it opened its doors six (6) years ago.  Since then, Jamul Casino has been recognized annually as the winner in several categories of the San Diego Union-Tribune’s “San Diego’s Best” Reader’s Poll.  The Casino’s fine dining restaurant, Prime Cut Steak & Seafood, has also received a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for five (5) years running.

Continued Tribal Investment

Since Jamul Casino opened, the Jamul Indian Village has continued to invest in renovating and elevating the facility.  In February 2019, Jamul Casino opened its Poker Room which has hosted some of the game’s top professional players and local celebrities.  In July 2020, the Casino added The Rooftop, which has become one of East County San Diego’s top destinations for weddings and events.  In May 2021, the entire Casino was furnished with new carpet.  In July 2021, the Casino opened its newly renovated food court, Jamul Marketplace, featuring a centerpiece 360-degree cylindrical LED video screen—the only one of its kind in Southern California.  In February 2022, the Casino opened a suite of elegantly remodeled High Limit Rooms based on the principles of Feng Shui to bring luck into the spaces. 

Erica M. Pinto, Chairwoman of the Jamul Indian Village, states, “Together with the Tribal leadership, I thank our loyal guests for choosing Jamul Casino, our outstanding management for their expert leadership, and our team members for their hard work and dedication over these last six years.  We look forward to continued success, ongoing re-investment, fresh improvements, and new things to come.”
