Caesar's Palace Coming to San Diego
in Partnership with Pauma
Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas
Note that the San Diego version will likely be different
But hopefully carry much of the same class
near I-15 and route 76 between Los
Angeles and San Diego
rpsoft 2000 casino review:
North County of San Diego is becoming an impressive casino area. Three
very good casinos will be in the same area, giving one almost a feeling of
Las Vegas. Harrah's Rincon, Pauma (soon to become Caesar's Palace and
Pauma partnership) and Pala Casino are all near each other. Each of
these casinos is done with class. The fact that they are in close
proximity will make the area more than interesting as a local casino
paradise. Valley View Casino is also nearby and Pechanga is just a
little more North on highway 15 closer to Los Angeles.
Caesar's Pauma - planned

Pauma begins $250M talks with Caesars Palace owners
One of the most recognizable names in Las Vegas gambling
could be coming to North County.
Officials of Vegas-based Park Place Entertainment Corp., which owns Caesars
Palace and 28 other casinos, announced it was in negotiations with the
Pauma-Yuima Band of Mission Indians to build a $250 million "Caesars Pauma"
resort and casino on the Pauma Valley reservation, located off Highway 76
about 14 miles east of Interstate 15.
"We're honored to have been selected by the
Pauma-Yuima band, and we think we can help them achieve their goal of
building a premier casino and resort," said Robert Stewart, a spokesman for
Park Place Entertainment.
Tribal chairman Chris Devers could not be reached
for comment, but said in a statement that by "tribal vote" the band decided
to begin exclusive negotiations with the Las Vegas group to develop and
manage the new casino.
"The Pauma tribe is excited about the opportunity to work with Park Place to
create a casino resort that the tribe and the community can be proud of,"
Devers said in the statement.
The 135-member band opened a $40 million, 65,000-square-foot casino in 2001.
Unlike several of its tribal neighbors, Pauma developed the casino
independently with the help of consultants.
Casino Pauma had a rocky beginning, having to dismiss about a quarter of its
650 employees due to overstaffing, officials said at the time. It also had
to agree with the county to pay for road improvements near the reservation,
before county officials agreed to withdraw its objections to a casino liquor
"Caesars Pauma" would be built on more than 30 acres of tribal land. The
project would include a 500-room hotel, 100,000 square feet of gambling
space, various restaurants, a live entertainment venue and spa.
If developed, the resort will be the third North County operation with a
full-blown hotel and casino. That does not include the smaller casinos at
the San Pasqual and La Jolla reservations, or the $262 million Pechanga
Resort & Casino in Southwest Riverside County.
The Pauma's casino is within 10 miles of both the Pala Casino Resort and Spa
and the $125 million Harrah's Rincon Casino & Resort.
By helping the Pauma band, Stewart said Park Place hopes to reach a growing
market for gambling in Southern California that includes millions of adults
in the Los Angeles and San Diego county areas.
"The growth of gaming in the area is going to expand the overall market for
gaming," he said.
If development and management agreements are reached between Park Place and
the Pauma band, federal regulators must approve the management contract
before building can begin.
Officials said the project could be completed by 2005.
