Viejas Casino Sets New Guinness Record for World’s Largest Blackjack Table Viejas Casino in San Diego set a new Guinness Record for World’s Largest Blackjack Table on September 13, 2012.

Viejas Casino, Southern California’s premier gaming, dining and

entertainment destination, today set a new Guinness Record for the

World’s Largest Blackjack Table.

The record was set at 9:45 a.m. today, as six guests sat at a massive

blackjack table measuring just over 2,226 square feet and played a hand

of blackjack with chips and cards that were ten times the size of the

actual Viejas blackjack chips and cards. Philip Robertson, an official

“Adjudicator” for Guinness was on hand to confirm the measurements and

witness the hand of blackjack…and the new record was officially

certified amid a rousing round of cheers and applause from Viejas Team

Members and guests in the DreamCatcher at Viejas Casino.

new record,” said Viejas Casino General Manager Chris Kelley. “The

timing coincides with the 21st anniversary of Viejas Casino

and reflects our ongoing commitment to providing our guests with a fun,

exciting and entertaining experience.”

Immediately after the record was certified, V Club members were offered

a free opportunity to play a hand of blackjack at the table and enter a

drawing for their share of a $21,000 cash prize.

Continuing the excitement, the public is invited to attend a 21st

Anniversary Celebration at the V Lounge at 2 p.m. on Friday, September

14, featuring free Anniversary Cake, music and entertainment. On

Saturday, September 15, two lucky guests will each win a 2013

Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe capping off one of the most exciting milestones

in Viejas Casino history.
