“We look forward to welcoming the community to Jamul Casino where we will be celebrating in every venue at the casino,” said Jamul Indian Village Chairwoman Erica M.

We want to thank the community for their continued support and invite everyone back into the casino to enjoy the hospitality of the Jamul Indian Village.”
The casino is also featuring two Jamul Casino themed giveaways on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every guest who walks in the door will receive a Sweetwater treat at the casino’s chocolate bar prize giveaway in Loft 94 Beer Garden, with one in four chocolate bars giving away $20 in cash inside and one of the bars holding a grand prize of $5,000 in cash. Guests can also play their way to earn a limited-edition Jamul Casino iconic droplet logoed watch designed to commemorate the occasion. Guests must be 21 years of age to enter the casino.
At Tony Gwynn’s Sports Pub, guests will celebrate Mr. Padre with a Tony Gwynn-themed night, complete with a buffet of Tony Gwynn’s favorite dishes, the launch of Tony Gwynn Jr.’s newest beer, and appearances by Alicia Gwynn and Tony Gwynn Jr. Members of the general public may make a reservation for the Mr. Padre Party by calling 619-315-2470.
And at Prime Cut steakhouse, Certified Master Chef® Ron DeSantis takes over the kitchen to deliver a "world-class culinary experience for invited guests," according to a press release.
