mini-Review of Sycuan Casino, El Cajon, CA ( East of San Diego )

I was going to San Diego anyway, so I booked a COMP'd room for 2 nights using myVegas to check it out. I flew into San Diego and picking up the rental car ( Enterprise ) was quick and easy.

Sycuan has a very very nice hotel with nice views of the Hills. The room was large and on the 12th floor the windows were floor to ceiling, and there was a high ceiling to start with.





It is off the beaten path, and of course the Maps app on my cell phone decided to stop working, but I drove through a golf course parking lot and some nice folks loading up their clubs gave me directions for the last few miles. It could use some signage for the last 5 miles.

Sycuan has a very large sprawling casino, 2 floors in some parts, and is mostly slots with various table games including $ 15 3/2 Blackjack, and a few Video Poker machines in the non-Smoking section.

The best payback table I saw was 9/5 JoB with a Progressive:



There were also some VP machines from a different manufacturer that had very amateurish graphics:



There is also a Large Bingo room, but I didn't try that. Coffee and soft drinks are complimentary at a counter on the 2nd floor.

Years ago it was a little building. I'm surprised to see a big hotel there now.

Thanks for the report.

Did they have card craps? If so, what method was used?

The website claims it does, and from the description, it sounds like the version where there are cards numbered 1-6 and each is assigned to a number on each die.

Hotel and expansion opened maybe 3 years ago. Think they started serving alcohol at that time also so probably no longer 18+ either.

I walked by the Craps tables and it looked like the surface wasn't felt, but like a TV screen ( ? ). I don't know if it was Card Craps since I don't know exactly what that is.

Cache Creek has one of those as well. I think it's called a "Roll to Win" table.

"Card Craps" is where they have to use cards in some way, since "card games" are the only table games currently allowed in some states, including California. The way it usually works is, they take six cards - an Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 - then shuffle them and deal them onto six spaces on the table marked 1-6. When you roll the dice, the cards in the rolled numbers' spaces are used.
For example, suppose space 3 has a 2 in it, and space 4 has an Ace. You roll a 3-4 on the comeout, but instead of being a 7, the 3 is treated as a 2, and the 4 as a 1, so you rolled a 3.

Here's a YouTube video of a Roll to Win table (I think it's from somewhere where they don't need to use cards):
