I'm was a Diamond VIP club member until I was charged with felony vandalism and told I was excluded from the property. But if I had the money to pay for the broken glass in full that I would he allowed to be reinstated by the commoner. I have been a player at this facility for about a year and lose ALOT OF MONEY 💰 here. But occasionally I do win some I was playing this slot machine and the spin button kept malfunctioning I got irritated and didn't realize that I had broken the glass around-the-clock button I continued to play and was contacted by DPS and asked if i was playing at that slot machine and I answered in the affirmative.I offered to pay for the damage $1000.00 plus but since I didn't have the full amount they had me arrested and charged with felony vandalism. Sure I got carried away in the moment but by no means was it done with intent to break the glass ;.that was not my intention. But yet I'm not allowed back on the property for a year. This place is great entertainment but alot of the slot machines (buttons) have been broken foe a while.
My love affair with San Manuel started back in 2002 when San Manuel became the Hero in an awesome story with a co-worker - we'll call him Steve. Steve and I worked together in Anaheim and commuted from the IE right after I graduated from College. One day we hit up a happy hour when I was the driver for the day...we had a few pops...he had a few too many and I was trying to drive him home...he flat out refused. I dropped him at his car at our meeting point thinking he was going to chill for a while....he did not I would find out later. I went home and went to bed. I woke up to 25 voicemails starting at 11p. The First was Steve's wife: 'Hey Checking in if you guys are working late or went out for a few...haven't seen Steve yet.' A half hour later - Steve's wife again - 'starting to get worried.' Then a few from co-workers - 'Hey just heard from Steve's wife, she's looking for you and Steve are you okay?' To eventually the boss: 'Guys it's 2am where are you? We are all starting to get worried about you...we are calling hospitals...please call us.' Steve's wife again this time in tears...'where are you?' You get the point. The last call was Steve: 'Hey its 5am I'm home. Sorry everyone was worried." Turns out he drove to San Manuel and won like 5K at the tables. He was in the doghouse...but got himself out of it by winning...Crazy. I was asleep the whole time. Still a story that is told in certain circles to this day. The names are changed to protect the not-so-innocent, but what a wild night
Naturally, I had to check the place out the next day and went for the first time. Had fun playing slots, ate at the buffet and had a few cocktails watching some playoff hockey on the TVs. I think I may have broke even, but had a good 5-6 hours of entertainment on a random Saturday in May.
Then I hadn't been here for about 10 years or so until they started doing the special nights at the Pines with Dodgers, like Steve Garvey, Tommy Lasorda etc. I started going to those when I was with FOX and Monica of course has a relationship with the Dodgers and I was hooked. A good steak, good wine menu, good cocktails - world class entertainment and that is not even including the gaming.
I always have a blast whenever I go and now that I am back in the IE - I am there regularly. Love the place.
San Manuel Casino this is the place i go to play slots. Place is packed all the time. Why? Because people love it! Casino is very clean, restaurants are very clean with good food nice services. People complain all the time wheel lot of smoking this that , they don't understand this is a Casino. People go for fun and to have a good time. They smoke, drink and dance. It is a party place. They gamble, they win, they lose. If i go special to casino to gamble i go to San Manuel i know if i lose then it is my fault because you are trying take someone elses money. Then you have to risk your own money, very simple! If you are going to a casino to win money, then you must prepare to lose also. Don't blame the casino. I am a serrano club member for over 13 years. Iam sill going and i win and i lose but i still enjoy San Manuel. God bless San Manuel i love it. If you lose it is your fault. Play responsibly and have a good time. i see Jackpots in this casino Big money you will not see anywhere else. Again, if i risk my money for gambling i will go to SAN MANUEL only.
I love San Manuel casino. People are nice and friendly. Clean and safe. I have been going to this casino for more than 10 years. When people say San Manuel's slots are not paying, they are wrong, I win a lot of jackpots, go to other casinos and you will see the difference. God bless San Manuel!
