Casino City Times

(PRESS RELEASE) -- While Pala Casino Spa and Resort continues to put the finishing touches on what is being described as its new 'pool experience' along with its expanded hotel parking garage, both opening Saturday, 19 May, the team at Pala has planted additional expansion seeds that are already starting to bloom.
Pala's new adults-only, multi-pool experience will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy 14 luxurious cabanas, five pools, two expansive hot tubs, a new poolside bar, a new poolside restaurant and a variety of outdoor lounge spaces complete with fireplaces for evening cocktails. The new hotel parking garage will add 420 spots giving Pala 3,700 convenient parking spaces just steps away from the action. In June, Pala will unveil more exciting elements of its remodel and expansion.
Perhaps one of the most comfortable and satisfying for many guests will be the new 15,000 square-foot smoke-free casino area that will be located adjacent to the poker room. It is scheduled to open Friday, 29 June.
'As part of our casino remodel and expansion, we are paying particular attention to our many guests who prefer to enjoy the smoke-free areas within our resort. We are creating a beautifully appointed casino area which will offer over 300 slot and video poker machines, live poker, casino cashier services and several restaurants and bars. Guests will be able to enter the smoke-free casino directly through the smoke-free hotel entrance utilizing our complimentary valet service,' said Pala Chief Executive Officer Bill Bembenek.
The new smoke-free space will be enclosed with glass from floor to ceiling. Extra care is being taken to ensure that the transition from the smoke-free casino area is seamless without smoke being allowed to intrude into the new space. Pala's HVAC system will be augmented to ensure that positive air flows out from the smoke-free space into the casino area where smoking is allowed.
On 29 June, Pala will open Marquise Bar, its newest casino bar and lounge. This opulent bar will offer plush lounge space and ample seating, and will be adorned with hundreds of strands of crystals. It will be the centerpiece of a new 10,000 square-foot gaming area, which will offer over 300 new slot and video poker machines and new blackjack and roulette tables.
Also at 11 a.m., 29 June, Pala will reopen the expanded version of Luis Rey's, its popular indoor-outdoor restaurant, bar and live entertainment venue. It will offer a wide selection of appetizers, including Pala's world-famous Street Tacos, Fish Tacos and Carne Asada Nachos. Soups and salads will include The Chef Salad, Classic Caesar, Luis Rey's Chopped and the chef's daily soup selection.
There will be a wide selection of burgers, including the Signature Luis Rey's Kobe Burger and sandwiches will include the Piled High Corn Beef, Pork Schnitzel, Beef & Cheddar, Philly Cheese Steak, Hot Pastrami, Classic Deli Club, the All-American and the Luis Rey's BLAT.
The specialty drink menu will feature a Classic Mojito, Paradise Punch, Chocolate Martini, selections of Margaritas (Classic, Strawberry, Mango, Skinny), Moscow Mule (Classic or Raspberry) and Michelada. Beer selections will include 16 draft beer options in addition to a wide variety of Domestic, Imported and Craft options.

Happy Hour at Luis Rey's will be 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily and prices will include Street Tacos (Chicken or Steak), $1; and Moscow Mules, Margaritas and Draft Beer, $3.75 each.
Luis Rey's will offer live entertainment from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday.

Pala oppose nearby housing project proposal
March 31, 2018
Planners for North County and the Board of Supervisors are scheduled to make a decision on a proposed housing development that would be located across from Pala Casino Resort & Spa off of state Route 76. The project would create 780 new homes for the area. The approval could come sometime this summer.
There are several proposed housing plans that the officials will need to decide on. This is just one of them.
The Warner Ranch proposal plan has been in development for nearly 13 years. The plan would be to attract the thousands of people that drive long distances to go to their jobs at the North County casinos. The project would supply housing that would be closer to their jobs and cut down on their commute time to get there. The thought is also that it could help eliminate some of the traffic on the congested 15 freeway.
It would also be built on 513 acres of private land next to the reservation and just to the west of the Pala casino. Houses would be developed on 130 acres. Open space would be reserved for the rest of the land. Some of the houses would be built directly across the street from the casino.
A study that was previously conducted showed that 2,200 people drive at least 45 minutes from their homes to their jobs at the casinos every day. These people are commuting from Riverside County and other locations.
The plan is opposed by the Pala Band of Mission Indians. As well as environmental groups.
The area where they project is to be developed is in a rural area of the county. The general plan for the area would need to be amended and construction to widen Highway 76 would also need to happen.
Any proposed housing project in the county must meet certain requirements. One of those requirements is the location to stores and recreation.
The reservation where the Pala is located is considered a sovereign nation. The tribe does not wish to grant outsiders access to their land that cannot be reached from public roads. They insist that the proposed location to their land and their casino should not meet the county's requirements.
The tribe also believes that the average casino employee would not make enough in wages to qualify for the housing being built for them. Another reason the Pala are against the project is the increase in the amount of traffic.
Currently the proposed location is zoned as agricultural.

[toc]PokerStars wasn’t the only real-money online gaming website that went live in New Jersey recently.
On March 22, 2016 Pala Interactive launched a real-money online bingo site in New Jersey, PalaBingoUSA.com. The NJ bingo site, like the PalaCasino.com New Jersey online casino, is run by the California tribe in conjunction with Borgata Hotel and Casino, whose online gaming license Pala uses in New Jersey.
The Pala Bingo site is currently offering 90 ball bingo games – more information on 90 ball bingo can be found below.
“We are excited to bring 90 Ball Online Bingo to New Jersey by launching PalaBingoUSA.com,” Jim Ryan, CEO of Pala Interactive said in a press release. “We believe there is tremendous potential in 90 Ball Bingo in New Jersey and as such we decided to launch 90 Ball Bingo with a dedicated brand. We believe this focus on bingo make PalaBingoUSA.com New Jersey’s home for online bingo players.”
Pala’s bingo software is being provided by Gaming Realms, a leading European online gaming operator and software supplier whose management team has expertise with leading successful online bingo brands such as Foxy Bingo and Slingo, according to the press release.
Patrick Southon, Gaming Realms’ CEO, said of the new partnership and the company’s entry into the U.S. market:
“This is a significant partnership for Gaming Realms as it marks our first U.S. real money venture. We are pleased to be part of PalaBingoUSA.com and hope the project will open up further opportunities to work with Pala Interactive.”
How to play 90 ball bingo
90 ball bingo is a variant that I can best describe as a blend of traditional bingo with some elements of a keno game, especially in its online form where numbers are marked off automatically.
Much like 75-ball bingo, 90-ball bingo is played on a bingo card. But unlike a standard bingo card, in 90 ball bingo each card has just three lines of five numbers, for a total of 15 numbers.
In 90 ball bingo, players can win up to three times each game by accomplishing the following:
- Cover one line of five numbers
- Cover two lines of five numbers
- Cover all three lines AKA a full house
There is also usually a jackpot for players who can cover their entire card before a certain amount of numbers have been called.
Here’s a quick tutorial video of the game if my layman-esque explanation doesn’t make sense:
And here is a complete walkthrough I found on the Pala Bingo website.
Tropicana’s 90-ball bingo games
Pala isn’t the only real-money online bingo provider in New Jersey. Another site beat Pala to the punch over a year ago.
Last March, Tropicana (and its sister site VirginCasino.com) launched their own 90-ball bingo game in New Jersey. Tropicana was the first regulated online gaming bingo provider in the United States.
The difference between Tropicana’s bingo games and Pala’s is one of degrees. Even though it currently has an online casino in New Jersey, Pala is marketing its bingo site as a standalone product, whereas Tropicana’s bingo games are just one part of the company’s online casino games in New Jersey.
I haven’t seen any raw data on the amount of revenue Tropicana’s bingo games are producing, but I was surprised to learn how big the online bingo market in Europe. One report from Gambling Data estimated online bingo accounted for over £250 million of the UK’s £1.7 billion of online gaming revenue in 2011.
