Look at the line to get into Morongo Casino on opening night

Why do all of them want to go to a casino? Are people dumber than I thought?

And what's especially ironic is that many of them are elderly and/or fat. Definitely a high risk group.

Not a surprise. Most of the Coachella Valley and Inland Empire (outside of the nicer parts of Palm Springs) are filled with some of the dumbest, fattest trash that has ever lived.

Look closer, fools. The majority are Chinese who bus from the LA area to the casino. Great convoys of private buses.

R10 is right. The Chinese are serious when it comes to their gambling. Lots of Chinese at that casino. The outlet mall next door to it has announcements in English and Mandarin. Not English and Spanish.
I don't see a ton of overweight people either.

R10 and R11 those photos don't suggest an overwhelming Asian presence at all.
Buffets are all closed, so no Alaskan King Crab legs.

ABC7 did a brief piece on the crowds. Again, they are definitely not primarily Asian.

Is morongo casino a nice place, luxury? Or is it low end?
|by Anonymous||reply 19||05/23/2020|
R19 - there are very few luxury casinos anywhere. This one is in the middle, but they had just expanded quite a bit.
It's in the middle of the nowhere in an ugly patch of the desert. It only exists to take money. Oh, but there is actually a good outlet mall there - a real outlet mall with high-end brands.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||05/23/2020|
R20, Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage is much nicer but overall, the Indian Casinos in California aren't luxury like the Wynn Las Vegas. It's a different experience. Morongo's not bad, probably comparable to the Mirage but much better than some of the others like Pechanga which is thought to have a strong gang presence.

I lived in Palm Springs about 15 years ago. I am a physician and worked at Betty Ford ( we call it "Betty").
Betty was desperately trying to capitalize on the wealthy Morongo and Aguas Calientes tribes, who had high rates of meth abuse/behavioral issues. Betty saw dollar signs for sure.
But back then Betty was run by irritable dry drunk Irishman, a fervid 12 stepper, who would take patients off their psychiatric medications so they would experience "authentic suffering". It was a disaster. I had psychotic meth addicts that were rooming with upper class drunks from Orange County. One of my Morongo patients decked her roommate during a psychotic breakdown. I still remember, the roommate was the daughter of a prominent surgeon in OC.
They brought me on board to quietly medicate the psychotics and depressed.
Oh, and at that time, the Riverside County sheriffs said they would no longer enter the Morongo Reservation, as they were getting shot at by drugged up tribe members with assault rifles.

My folks live in Palm Springs and go to Aqua Caliente. I've gone with them and it has pretty decent rooms and a great pool area-I don't really gamble so avoid the casino for the most part. Today, they got a letter from the casino giving them each a $500 gambling credit. They don't even go that much and won't be going anytime soon but I'm sure that incentive will draw a lot of morons.

They are giving away $500 in gambling credits. Of course these losers will risk their own lives for $500.

Both Pala and Agua Caliente have also closed their buffets. I believe they follow the guidelines from the National Indian Gaming Commission and it has decreed no buffets as a condition to open early.

The Agua Caliente Casino in downtown PS can be fun for a few hours with friends and the buffet is cheap and decent enough. However, I don't envisage visiting a casino for a very long time.

People are spoiled and they were upset that they couldn't have a Memorial Day weekend, and all corporate politicians were getting heat from businesses who wanted Memorial Day business, so they caved and opened a lot of places up.
Check the nationwide Covid stats around June 7th or so, should be interesting to watch.

I don't get this. I had called my favorite gay B&B in Palm Springs, which is basically 15-20 little bungalows with all exterior, outdoor access. There is a plenty of space at the pool, yet the owners were telling me that Palm Springs was still on lockdown similar to LA and that right now mid June is the earliest they might be able to open. Why is Morongo getting to open up in any capacity, especially a casino? Isn't that like stage 3 or 4 for CA? Is it b/c the are on an Indian reservation or something?
