Morongo Casino introducing a cashless wagering system

January 14, 2021

Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa will be one of the first casinos to use Marker Trax, a cashless wagering system for slot machines. The system requires players to belong to the Morongo Rewards Players Club and qualify for funding similar to a line of credit. The funds are updated as a player inserts his card into gaming machines.

The Morongo mobile app will communicate with Marker Trax through the casino's computer system. Players can manage their accounts and also be able to apply for funding through the app.

The Marker Trax cashless system will be introduced and rolled out during this first quarter of 2021.

A wait list is available by cellphone.

In addition:

  • Cards are replaced every hour with new, sanitized decks, and the chip racks are sanitized by chip runners throughout their shift.

  • Food service is temporarily suspended in the poker room. Drinks are available in disposable cups.

  • All poker tournaments are temporarily suspended.

Morongo Casino Expansion 2020

Last January Morongo Casino Resort and Spa broke ground for its massive casino expansion and renovation project. After nine months the project has passed its midpoint on the way to completion next summer.

"We are completely renovating almost every millimeter of the existing casino floor in some way, from new carpet to elegant lighting and new ceiling and wall treatments," says Simon Farmer, Executive Marketing Director at Morongo. "We have put together an all-star team of incredible designers, contractors and craftsmen, and the results are going to spectacular."

Curtains in the existing casino hide the total renovation work from Morongo guests. Restaurants on the first floor are being redesigned and upgraded one at a time. A 750-space vehicle parking garage with valet service is also under construction.

Morongo Casino opens 2 new restaurants

May 15, 2019

Morongo has made significant changes to its dining options. Two new restaurants were opened this month and three were closed to make new space for the future.

The closed restaurants are the Natural 9 Noodle Company, Tacos & Tequila and Cafe Serrano. The Cafe Serrano will be replaced by a future Asian restaurant. Both the Pink Coffee and the Good Times Cafe are part of the current expansion and renovation project that increased the casino floor by 30% and reopened the old Casino Morongo.
