Jamul Casino San Diego


The Jamul Indian Village (JIV) entered into a partnership with Penn National Gaming to build a Hollywood-branded casino on 6 acres of tribal land in San Diego County.  The casino site is located on state Route 94 about 20 miles east of downtown San Diego. Construction on the $430 million, three-story casino began in January 2015. 

After the tribe signed a gaming compact with the state in 1999, there were 15 years of legal hurdles to gain approval.  In August 2016 the Jamul Indian Village signed a 30-year gaming compact with the State of California.

On March 1, 2018 the Jamul Indian Village announced it would self-manage the casino and end its partnership with Penn National Gaming. As a result the casino name was changed to Jamul Casino.

Jamul Casino reopened today May 21

May 21, 2020

Jamul Casino rebrands and ends Penn National Gaming partnership

May 29, 2018

The Hollywood Casino Jamul will be undergoing new management and new branding starting on Tuesday.

The announcement was made recently that Penn National Gaming will be leaving the partnership in the casino. The Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation (JIVDC) will be taking over the management.

JIVDC is owned completely by the Jamul Indian Village. It is part of the Kumeyaay Nation and is federally recognized.

In March the change had started to take place when JIVDC began making the transition in casino operations and management.

Rebranding has also begun. The casino will now be known as Jamul Casino. It is located on tribal land in east San Diego County. Downtown San Diego is 20 minutes away.

Members of the Marquee Rewards program will have their previous benefits moved to the new loyalty program for the casino. It is known as Sweetwater Rewards. This includes their current tier status and comps that have been earned. There will also be new benefits added to the program for members.

The goal of the transition has been to make the change over as smooth as possible. None of the employees have been laid off. There is even growth now to support the additional hiring of staff. Currently the casino supports nearly 1,000 people in the area for work.

Revenue earned from the casino goes to programs to support the tribal members. This includes housing, education, and healthcare.

The Jamul Casino offers 70 table games and 1,700 slot machines. There are also 7 restaurants.

Jamul Casino Rebranding Name as Partnership Ends with Penn National

Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation Announces Management Transition for Hollywood Casino-Jamul San Diego

JAMUL, CALIFORNIA (March 1, 2018)- The Jamul Indian Village Development Corporation ("JIVDC"), a wholly owned entity of Jamul Indian Village ("JIV"), today announced plans for an orderly transition of the management of Hollywood Casino-Jamul San Diego from Penn National Gaming (NASDAQ: PENN) ("Penn National") to JIVDC.

The $460 million Hollywood Casino Jamul-San Diego, which was developed by a Penn National subsidiary on behalf of JIV on its tribal lands approximately 20 miles east of downtown San Diego, has been managed and operated by a Penn National subsidiary since its opening on October 10, 2016.

JIVDC stated that the termination of the casino's current management company agreement with Penn National is a natural next step toward economic self-sufficiency for JIV. "Our announcement today represents an important step toward our long-held goal to manage our own casino," said JIVDC Chairwoman Erica Pinto. "We are grateful to Penn National for all their hard work and leadership in bringing what was a very challenging development project to fruition."

As part of the transition plan, the casino will be rebranded as "Jamul Casino." The casino's current executive management team will stay in place during the switch to Jamul Casino. In addition, JIVDC has retained a highly qualified transition team to assist with the details of rebranding and transferring management.

"Most tribes in the Kumeyaay Nation self-manage their casino properties, and JIV is no different in that regard," said transition team leader David Patent, a former corporate vice president at Caesars Entertainment and current CEO of Patent Enterprises gaming consultancy. "JIVDC is fortunate to have a highly qualified, seasoned executive management team already in place, which will remain after the transition. Additionally, the transition team guiding JIVDC brings over 70 years of combined experience in casino development, operations and marketing." During the transition, there will be no changes to the Marquee Rewards program. After the transition, members will retain all of their earned comps and tier status, and comparable or better benefits, in a rebranded loyalty program for the new Jamul Casino.

JIVDC also expects no changes to employee roles or staffing structure during the transition. "Current Hollywood Casino employees are part of the JIV family, and will simply be employees of Jamul Casino once the change in management is complete," said Chairwoman Pinto. "We don't anticipate any reductions in employee head counts or staff restructuring as part of this transition."

As manager of the casino, JIVDC plans to maintain its support for and involvement in projects that improve the lives of its neighbors and other tribes. Past donations to the Jamul community, made possible by casino revenue, include over $5 million to state and county authorities for road improvements, $2.5 million in annual payments to the San Diego County Fire Authority, together with two state-of-the-art fire trucks, and $100,000 to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Concluded Chairwoman Pinto: "We look forward to Jamul Casino continuing to provide a highquality gaming experience, and to building on our already strong relationship with our guests and employees. We are also committed to being a supportive member of the community for generations to come."
