About Us

John Dinius, an employee at Sycuan Casino for 23 years, brings a unique perspective to his position having worked his way through the ranks during his tenure. Starting as a Bingo Pull Tabs Clerk, he also served as Slot Attendant, Shift Manager, Operations Manager, and Slot Director, essentially holding positions at every level at the casino. 

As General Manager, he uses a “bottom-up” philosophy rather than the standard top-down management style. By using team member focus groups, he is able to gain insights on the tools each unique department needs in order to better serve the property’s guests – and to foster a striving work environment.

Sycuan Casino began as a humble Bingo Palace in 1983. Now more than 33 years later, it has become a community landmark. Undergoing a massive renovation in 2012, Sycuan features 2,000 exciting reel and video slot machines, more than 40 gaming tables, including poker and bingo, and a variety of restaurants. Sycuan’s intimate 452-seat entertainment venue, Sycuan Live & Up Close, features national musical acts and comedians year-round.

Sycuan recently broke ground on a $226 million expansion project to include a 300-room hotel, pool and gardens area, conferences and events space, seven new restaurants, and an expanded gaming floor.

The organization is a dedicated partner to numerous local charities and its team members proudly support many local causes. Sycuan was recently recognized as the Community Partner of the Year by Susan G. Komen San Diego for the organization’s support for women’s health. 

Sycuan has been a BBB Accredited Business since 1997 with an A+ rating. Sycuan has proudly supported The BBB Foundation Gerry Wilson Golf Classic since 2007 and the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics since 2005.

Customer Reviews

We liked our first trip here. The casino is huge and there are a lot of choices on slots machines. We even won a few bucks so that's always a plus for us

Ruth S.

This is one of the better casinos around. Between Viejas, Barona, Hollywood or Sycuan, Sycuan gets my vote for loosest slots and best vibe. I've been playing here for many, many years and really is my go to place when I want to play slots.

Nan L.

The bingo is fun, good prices and the people treat you well. The food is great from the grill.

Jewels V.

Very good service! The dealers are very friendly, and all the servers are as well.
