CASINO MORONGO (March 31, 2022) – It’s game on at Casino Morongo with this week’s opening of a beautiful new poker room and new bingo hall that are both part of a recent expansion and renovation complementing the classic style of the wildly popular gaming destination.
Located beside the 27-story Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, the Casino Morongo Poker Room features 20 tables for daily play and tournaments, automatic shufflers on every table to streamline game play, and available game-side dining. The revamped Poker Room also offers Texas Hold’em or Omaha games and will air the biggest sports games on six wall-mounted high-definition 65-inch TVs.
As part of the grand opening weekend, Morongo’s Poker Room will give away $500 cash every hour to a random Morongo Rewards member playing Texas Hold’em or Omaha set from noon on Friday, April 1 until midnight on Monday, April 4. There will also be double jackpots every even hour throughout the weekend.
Located beside the new Poker Room, the new Casino Morongo Bingo Hall features 250 seats and state-of-the-art electronic playing tablets to enhance the player experience. To welcome the space, Morongo is hosting a Bingo Room Re-Opening Celebration on Friday, April 1 starting at 3:00 p.m. with the first game scheduled for 6:00 p.m. that evening.
The Bingo Hall’s doors will open at 3:00 p.m. every Wednesday through Saturday, with the first game at 6:00 p.m. On Sundays, doors will open at 11:00 a.m. with the first game at 2:00 p.m. The Bingo Hall will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
“We’re thrilled to announce that bingo is back at Morongo, and cards are in the air in our new poker room,” said Morongo’s Chief Operating Officer Richard St. Jean. “We’ve created two gorgeous new spaces for our poker and bingo players to enjoy and we’re confident that these new accommodations will exceed our guests’ expectations for comfort and playability.”
Built by Moorefield Construction, Inc., the expanded Casino Morongo created more than 50 construction jobs and dozens of new full-time casino positions to add to the 2,500 jobs that Morongo already provides.
The project follows the 2020 renovation of the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa resort which brought vibrant new furnishings and dramatic décor to the 27-story resort tower, as well as an expansion that gave Morongo one of the largest casino floors on the West Coast. The project included an elegant remodel of all 310 of Morongo’s suites and guest rooms.
