Las Vegas-Style

Casino Gaming

Bright ideas for grown-up playtime

 

Lady luck has a spot at the table for you.

While San Diego is renowned for its world-class attractions and beautiful beaches, what isn't as well known is that San Diego also offers Las Vegas-style casino gaming.

Just 30-45 minutes from downtown, San Diego's casinos provide 24/7 Las Vegas-style action and entertainment, with some offering full-service resort facilities, popular outlet centers, luxury spas, golf courses and museums, along with showrooms and live music and comedy.

Developed by Native Americans on their tribal lands, San Diego's casinos reflect another facet of the rich cultural diversity in this region. With a thriving community of 18 tribes, San Diego has the largest tribal concentration of any single county in the U.S. —many of them contributing in the region's successful gaming business. While the casinos help the tribes to be financially self-sufficient, they also enable tribal governments to support charities and social programs serving the entire San Diego community.

What to Expect

  • Many of the casinos offer value-priced, all-you-can eat buffets.
  • While children are not allowed in the gaming areas, most casinos allow children in the buffets, dining rooms, pools, shops, entertainment venues and other areas.
  • Many of the casinos feature top-shelf headliner entertainment including musical and comic performers.
  • Many of the casinos offer bus service throughout Southern California. Contact the casino of interest for more information.

What to Know

  • The minimum age for casino play ranges between 18 to 21 years old. Contact the specific casino of interest for requirements.
  • California drinking age is 21. Some casinos offer full alcohol service. Contact the casino of interest directly to find out their policies.
  • San Diego's casinos are open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
