Viejas Outlets east of San Diego is the site of the new Viejas Bingo, directly across the street from Viejas Casino and Resort.
It features a 6,000 square foot bingo floor with 400 seats, dedicated smoking and non-smoking areas, valet parking…and the return of the popular Viejas Bingo Snack Bar! The new Viejas Bingo also features a dedicated 1,000 square foot area with a selection of popular slot machines. In addition to the traditional paper sheets and daubers, guests can also choose from portable hand-held electronic bingo tablets and flat screen monitors that allow them to play up to 500 bingo games at a time.
The first Viejas Bingo facility opened in 1977 at the Ma Tar Awa RV Park on the Viejas Reservation. In 1994, Viejas Bingo was moved to a location inside the Viejas Casino building, and in 2000 a new structure was built on the east side of Viejas Casino to house the growing bingo operation. That structure was demolished to make way for the new four-diamond Viejas Hotel, which opened in March 2012 and Viejas Bingo was moved inside Viejas Casino.
Viejas Casino and Resort general manager Chris Kelley said, “Guest service is our highest priority and the new Viejas Bingo incorporates many of the features, amenities and conveniences that our guests have asked for. It will also be a nice fit for Viejas Outlets, which provides our bingo guests with additional entertainment, dining and shopping opportunities.”
Located off of I-8 east of San Diego, the Four-Diamond Viejas Casino and Resort features thousands of slot machines. Its website is at www.viejas.com
