Viejas Casino Attempts to Set Guinness Record for World’s Largest Blackjack Table

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

entertainment destination, will attempt to set a new Guinness Record for

the World’s Largest Blackjack Table on September 13 – Viejas Casino’s 21st


Crews have started constructing the massive blackjack table, which

measures 60’ x 36’ and will be placed inside the DreamCatcher lounge at

Viejas Casino. Six players will play a hand of blackjack witnessed by an

official Guinness adjudicator flown in from London exclusively to

certify the world record. Each player will use duplicate blackjack chips

that are exactly ten times the size of the actual chips. The dealer, who

will stand on the table for the record-setting game, will use a

duplicate set of Viejas Casino blackjack cards, which will be exactly

ten times the size of the actual cards.

“Since the day Viejas Casino opened in 1991, we’ve offered our guests

the best, most exciting variety of table games, slots, poker, bingo and

more,” said Viejas Casino General Manager Chris Kelley. “Setting a new

Guinness Record for the Largest Blackjack Table, and then letting our

guests play at the table and share in the excitement, continues Viejas

Casino’s commitment to innovation and guest service.”

The new Guinness Record is expected to be set at approximately 9 a.m. on

Thursday, September 13. Immediately after the record is certified, V

Club members will be 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, which will take place at 9 p.m.

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.
