Viejas Casino, Southern Californias premier gaming, dining and
entertainment destination, today set a new Guinness Record for the
Worlds 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.
