Palm Springs Casinos: Ranked


You want to head out to the casino, have a little fun, win a little money…but which one should you go to? Here are the top casinos in the Greater Palm Springs Area ranked from good to best:

(note: this is not a ranking of best places to win money, if I knew the answer to that,  I would be at that casino and winning lots of money right now)

6) Spotlight 29 Casino

Why here: Free soft drink machines for your soft drinks, – you, of course would never add something of your own to that soft drink…because that would be wrong!
Spotlight 29 Casino, 46200 Harrison Pl, Coachella, (760) 775-5566

5) Augustine Casino

Why here: The buffet.  You will not find anywhere else in town with a steak and eggs buffet for under $10.
Augustine Casino, 84-001 Avenue 54, Coachella, CA 92236, (760) 391-9500

4) Spa Resort Casino

Why here: You can walk there from downtown Palm Springs (and vice-versa).
Spa Resort Casino, 401 E Amado Rd, Palm Springs, (760) 883-1000

3) Morongo Casino Resort Spa

Why here: Cielo.  There is nowhere else in The Desert where you can dine 27 stories above the ground.
Morongo Casino Resort Spa, 49500 Seminole Dr, Cabazon, (951) 849-3080

2) Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa

Why here: The Show.  The casino boasts the best live venue in Riverside County (note: this alone would have placed Agua Caliente as number 1, but sadly, as of late the artists booked have been kind of “meh”).
Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa, 32-250 Bob Hope Dr, Rancho Mirage, (760) 321-2000

1) Fantasy Springs Resort Casino

Why here: Off track betting.  Watching the ponies is so much better when there is money on the line.  Plus, the casino boasts free outdoor concerts every Saturday during the summer.
Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, 84-245 Indio Springs Dr, Indio, (760) 342-5000
