Soboba Casino Resort Uncovers Fun

◆ By Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians

In its ongoing effort to keep the health and safety of Soboba Casino Resort guests and team members a top priority, a Mask Up! campaign is underway to improve awareness about the importance of face coverings. Visitors who use their Soboba Rewards card when they play will get a Soboba Casino Resort branded mask after they earn 100 points. The promotion will continue through January, while supplies last.

“We want our guests to know they can feel comfortable no matter what time they choose to visit for some fun,” Chief Marketing Officer Martin Moore said.

This month also welcomes the return of La Casetta Pizza with a limited menu of personal size pizzas every Friday and Saturday from 2 to 10 p.m.

Canyons Steakhouse reopened at 50% seating capacity and properly spaced table arrangements for fine dining options. The addition of a lobster tank on Jan. 15 has allowed some expansion of its full menu to include more fresh seafood.

“This is a unique opportunity to choose a fresh, live lobster,” Moore said. “Each lobster is prepped for cooking and weighed to determine daily market price. Lobster prices are very volatile and change regularly based on supply and demand. The Canyons Steakhouse’s full complement of side dishes pair exceptionally well with fresh lobster.”

Moore added that Executive Chef Jon Palsson is highly trained in lobster preparation and has done extensive training with his entire culinary team to enhance guests’ fine dining experience.

Canyons Steakhouse dining hours are Thursday and Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. The restaurant is closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Reservations are not required but are highly recommended as parties cannot exceed 10 people and the Private Dining room is limited to 12 people total.

“Cash Encounters” is the biggest promotion running every Friday and Saturday this month. One winner will be drawn every hour from 4 to 9 p.m. to grab as much cash as possible from the cash cube. On Jan. 30 at 10 p.m., one lucky winner will be drawn to drive home in a brand-new Chevy Camaro 2SS convertible.

The popular 50-for-40 promotion continues every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Soboba Rewards members have an opportunity to purchase $50 in Free Slot Play for $40 in cash. Guests may purchase a voucher from the Cage and take it to a Soboba Rewards window to have the Free Slot Play added to their membership card.

Tuesdays offer “Moolah Madness” with winners every half hour from 4 to 9 p.m. When a winner’s name is chosen, they will select a “cow” and a promotions staff member will place the “cow” into the “UFO.” The guest will place their hands into the UFO and handle the cow to find a prize slip revealing if they have won either cash or Free Slot Play.

Also on Tuesdays, there will be some Table Games fun with a Blackjack Tournament every hour from 12 to 8 p.m. Four Table Games players will be randomly selected to participate in the tournament. Players must have been playing for at least 30 minutes prior to the Hot Seat pick to be eligible to qualify for the tournament. Each player will start with $2,500 in tournament chips and will play 15 hands per round or until the player has run out of chips. At the end of each round, all players’ chip totals will be recorded. At 8 p.m., the four winners with the top four chip totals will be posted.

Table Games players can enjoy another Hot Seat promotion on Thursdays from 5 to 10 p.m. A random player will be drawn every half hour. Starting with $100 they will have a chance to increase their winnings by playing “Ace in Space” – a high-low card game. Six cards will be dealt face down. The first card will be turned over and the winner will have to guess if the next card is higher or lower than the card before it. If the guest guesses correctly, they will win additional cash prizes. Drawn guests must be present to win and have been actively playing Table Games for at least five minutes.

Soboba Casino Resort is at 22777 Soboba Road in San Jacinto. More information can be found at or by calling 866-476-2622.
