Viejas Casino opens new high-stakes bingo room

Press Release,  Monday, March 26, 2012 at 7:09:58 PM

Viejas Casino reached a major milestone today, with the opening of a new high-stakes, high tech Bingo Room. Tribal elders, tribal leaders, local dignitaries, Chamber of Commerce representatives and the public all joined in the Grand Opening of the new Bingo Room. The ceremonies included a Tribal Blessing, traditional Native American Bird Songs and a ribbon cutting. 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 will be demolished to make way for the new hotel at Viejas Casino, which will include over 120 rooms, a pool and Jacuzzi area, and other amenities. the source

CA tribal casino certified for Responsible Gambling

Business Wire,  Thursday, March 8, 2007 at 11:59:09 AM

Viejas Casino, one of the most successful tribal gaming facilities in California, today announced that it has become the first casino in California to be certified as a responsible gambling facility. In training sessions that were completed last week, 75% of Viejas Casino's frontline casino employees learned how to identify and assist problem gamblers, bringing the total number of trained casino employees to 1,581. This marks the first time an entire casino has been certified in responsible gambling by the California Council on Problem Gambling (CCPG).

"This is an issue that we take very seriously," said Bobby Barrett, Viejas Tribal Chairman, Chairman of the California Tribal Business Alliance and a certified problem gambling counselor. "Although problem gambling only affects a relatively small percentage of players, it is still an issue that we are committed to, and even one person with problem gambling is too many. We are concerned with the health and safety of the people in our casinos and will take every step to ensure that their time with us is not negatively affecting their lives at home. We also challenge other casinos, race tracks, card rooms and the state lottery to match our efforts to help curb problem gambling."

The latest employee training sessions were facilitated by the California Council on Problem Gambling and took place at Viejas over a four-day period. Each team member was required to pass a test that was administered at the end of each training session. In order for a casino to become certified in responsible gambling, over 60% of its frontline employees must attend and pass the training courses.

"This is a very important milestone for California's gaming industry and we congratulate Viejas, which has been at the forefront of this issue since the start of tribal gaming," said Bruce Roberts, executive director of the California Council on Problem Gambling. "Casino certification for responsible gambling is extremely important because, in addition to employee training, there are six other criteria which must be met. These steps will educate the patrons, create public awareness and often prevent more serious consequences associated with problem gambling. Being able to recognize and assist those who exhibit early warning signs is the first step in helping to minimize the problem." the source
