The Morongo Band of Mission Indians is a true pioneer in Indian gaming. The Morongo Tribe began gaming as a means of economic development in mid-1983. In 1987, in a United States Supreme Court case, led by the Morongo and Cabazon tribes, the right of American Indian tribes to offer gaming on Indian reservations was confirmed. The Morongo Casino facility, starting as a modest bingo parlor, has transformed into one of the top rated gaming properties in the U. S.. Casino Morongo is not only one of the largest and oldest tribal casinos in the country, but the first in California to offer legal slot machines after Proposition 1a.
The Morongo Casino is located at the foot of the beautiful San Gorgonio Mountains. The Morongo Band of Mission Indians, a federally-recognized Indian tribe in Riverside County California, is a major contributor to the Coachella Valley economy. The Morongo Reservation spans over 32,000 acres. The Morongo Tribe is the largest employer in the Banning-Cabazon area with about 3,100 (2002 estimated) in both gaming & non-gaming enterprises.
