Viejas Casino, Southern Californias premier gaming, dining and
entertainment destination, will attempt to set a new Guinness Record for
the Worlds Largest Blackjack Table on September 13 Viejas Casinos 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, weve 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
Casinos 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.
