One of the best places for gaming, each time we have gone I have come out a winner. Pleasant environment, and good pizza. I recommend it to everyone.

The casino seems to be for the local community. Everyone in the area knows about it. It has been completely overhauled. It is nice and clean. I was there yesterday. They seemed to be very grounded. They had handouts for those who gamble a lot. It was difficult to get a machine that I liked. Not enough machines in the... More

We love casino Pauma. It feels like home! The staff are so patient and good to everyone. Free drinks and you get them yourself. Penny 20 card keno. You can win there more then anywhere else we have ever been. You hear jackpots being won all over the casino.

If your looking for a smaller full service casino, this is the place. It's one of my favorites for breakfast. The restaurant food is great and the prices are reasonable. There are plenty of slot machines and 50's music playing which I enjoy.

This casino is very geared towards locals. Things I like about this place is the self serve soda fountain and coffee and clean restrooms. The bar is small but has a good selection - too bad it's always a drive home or back to Harrah's. Player's Club area is very friendly and helpful. Machines are average if not a little... More

This casino is fairly small, quiet (for a casino), and has a friendly staff. The restaurant serves prime rib every week day for $10/person...and it is excellent!
