Viejas Casino & Resort, Southern Californias premier Four-Diamond gaming, dining and entertainment destination, is enlisting hundreds of guests, team members and community leaders in an attempt to break TWO Guinness World Records in a single day.
At 9 a.m. on Friday, September 13, Viejas Casino & Resort will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Deck of Cards ever played on the worlds Largest Blackjack Table. Each playing card measures over 3 x 4 and the massive table measures 2,200 square feet. The table is so large that the dealer will actually stand on the table to deal the record-breaking hand. An official adjudicator from the Guinness organization will fly in to witness the attempt and certify whether it was successful.
After the official record-breaking attempt, Viejas Casino guests will have the opportunity to play a hand and be entered to win their share of a $22,000 jackpot later in the evening.
Then, at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 13, Viejas Casino & Resort will attempt to set a new World Record for the most bottles of wine opened simultaneously. The famed Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas established the record last year 308 bottles opened in under 30 seconds. But that record was then broken at a Wine Festival in Minneapolis in May of this year, when 474 wine bottles were uncorked simultaneously. So how many bottles will be uncorked at Viejas Casino & Resort on September 13? We are expecting over 700 team members and guests, so we should have a great crowd for the record attempt, said Viejas Casino & Resort General Manager, Chris Kelley. How many bottles, exactly? Well have to wait and see, but given the spirit and determination of our community, Im confident we will be setting a new World Record.
A wine and food pairing for all guests will follow the record-breaking attempt.
