Looking to get a little practice in before fishing season arrives or maybe it just sounds like fun to catch a big exotic fish from the Amazon River? Head to Barona Resort & Casino and you can be among the first in North America to play an Amazon Fishing™ slot machine. Developed by slot maker Aruze Gaming America Inc., this exciting new joystick-controlled interactive slot machine is a Gold Award winner for the Most Innovative Product from Casino Journal and can only be found on the casino floor at Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego.

“We are proud to continually install the newest and most advanced slot machines for our Barona players,” said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “Barona is the first casino in North America to introduce Amazon Fishing™ and in the first few days of play we can tell that our players are making new friends with the interactive tournament aspect of the new game.”

Amazon Fishing™ is a community game that plays on three 60-inch monitors. Players can individually select the type of fish bait to induce a more personalized experience on the bonus screen.  Larger bait "attracts" less frequent but larger wins, while smaller bait result in more frequent but smaller rewards. Reel Feel™ Gaming Technology has also been integrated into the simulated rod controller. Players can feel resistance from the pull of the fish and a crank feature simulates actually reeling in players’ prizes.

<![CDATA[BARONA RESORT & CASINO COMPLETES INSTALLATION OF 2,000 NEW AND IMPROVED GAMING CHAIRS ]]>

Barona Resort & Casino has taken steps to make its players even more comfortable with the installation of new ergonomic chairs designed to provide players an even more enjoyable experience while having fun at the Happiest Casino on Earth.  The new chairs have been positioned at each of Barona’s 2,000 slot, video poker and video reel machines.

 

“Nearly 10 years ago, Barona was the first to take the initiative to design comfortable, ergonomic chairs for our players’ comfort and now you find them in some of the casinos around the world,” said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “Since the technology has improved dramatically since then, we wanted to take the lead in upgrading to the latest and greatest chairs available.”

 

The chairs feature wider and deeper seats for superior comfort, complete with specially developed foam padding for additional support. The back rests have been redesigned with side bolsters for added back support. Full-coverage foot-rests surrounding the chair base along with upgraded upholstery reduce unwanted ‘slide-outs.’ With full-swivel capability and automatic return to original direction, guests will be able to get in or out with ease.

 

Weighing 70 pounds less than the previous chairs and being mounted on glides as opposed to rollers allows for easier and smoother positioning. Players will find convenient handles on the lower back side of the chairs for quick adjustments as well as a powered height adjustment lever under the ride side of the seat.

 

“Guests will also be happy to hear that our chairs are exceptionally lucky,” said Vice President of Slots Chuck Hickey. “The chairs were wheeled past all of the good-luck symbols along our moving walkway and paused in front of each one to enhance their ‘mojo.’”

 

Known as San Diego’s loosest casino, Barona has 2,000 slots and video poker machines. Additionally, the casino features over 80 table games including Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, Three-Card Poker, Four-Card Poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride, Baccarat and Barona Roulette, as well as the latest innovations in chipless gaming including Chipless Roulette™, Chipless Three-Card Poker and Chipless Blackjack™.

Continued Chairman LaChappa, “Since opening in 2001, we have been focused on giving our players the best golf experience possible. To be in the same company of courses such as Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Pasatiempo is a strong example that we are conveying those efforts to our players and the golf industry.”

“Our Golfweek's Best Courses issue has become one of our more anticipated issues of the season, and one we always look forward to producing," said Golfweek Editor Jeff Babineau. "Our readers are passionate about the places they play, and our raters are equally passionate in ranking the thousands of venues they visit. We're happy to know the hard work that goes into compiling our annual lists will provide great fodder for conversation and debate at the 19th hole."

Golfweek's expert team of course raters, which currently boasts nearly 750 evaluators, rates each nominated course on the basis of Golfweek's 10 strict standards of evaluation. Collectively, Golfweek raters have turned in more than 55,000 votes. Golfweek's Best Courses lists include: Modern, Classic, Casino, Municipal, Campus, Residential, Resort, Canadian, Caribbean & Mexico, Great Britain & Ireland and Courses You Can Play.

<![CDATA[BONNIE LACHAPPA NAMED CITIZEN OF THE YEAR BY LAKESIDE CHAMBER]]>

The Lakeside Chamber of Commerce has named Bonnie LaChappa as the 2013 Lakeside Citizen of the Year with their Harry J. Spence Award. Bonnie, a lifelong Lakeside resident and an elected member of the Barona Band of Mission Indians Tribal Council, is well known for her tireless volunteerism in the East County community.

 

“Giving back and sharing have always been a big part of our Barona Tribal culture,” said Clifford LaChappa, Chairman of the Barona Band of Mission Indians. “We are very proud of everything Councilwoman LaChappa has done in the community to earn this meaningful award.”

 

In addition to her leadership on the Barona Tribal Council, Bonnie is a dedicated community servant and the list of causes and organizations she supports is long. She is committee co-chair of the Barona Cultural Center & Museum, a Board Member of the Lakeside Union School District, and Chairwoman of the Barona Recreation Center Parent Committee. In addition, she has served on the board for the Lakeside River Park Conservancy and also on an advisory committee for the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Underage Drinking Program.  A devoted wife and mother, she is also a champion of education and is an active member of the Lindo Park Elementary School PTA and Tierra Del Sol Middle School PTA, where her children attended school.

 

“No volunteer task is too small or too large for Bonnie," said Kathy Kassel, executive director of Lakeside Chamber of Commerce. "Whether it’s scooping snow cones all day, unloading trash at an ‘I Love a Clean Lakeside’ event or securing funding for the skate park, Bonnie gives with her whole heart and dedication. Bonnie’s love of Lakeside is shown in her commitment to making our community the best place to live, work and play.” 

 

The Lakeside Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Award originated in 1980. The first recipient was Harry J. Spence who was also a Lakeside resident and influential community volunteer.

 

 

“This award is such an honor and I'm really touched that people recognize how much I care about this community,” said Bonnie LaChappa. “I feel an incredible attachment to Lakeside and I want to make it the best it can be for my children, grandchildren and future generations.”

 

This latest honor caps a list of other notable awards earned by Bonnie in recent years.  She received the 2007 Women of the Year award from Senator Joel Anderson, the 2006 Women in Leadership “Government Leader” award from the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce and the 2011 Lakeside Chamber Member Volunteer of the Year Award.

<![CDATA[Barona Resort & Casino Leads the Industry with Cleanest Casino Air in the Country]]>

Barona Resort & Casino announced today that it has begun the installation of a multi-million dollar air filtration and purification system to further enhance indoor air quality at the award-winning casino. The first-of-its-kind system features a V-PAC™ Photo-catalytic Air Cleaning System manufactured by Ultra Violet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) that is being engineered and installed by Synergy Environmental. Once the installation is complete in December, Barona will have the cleanest air of any casino in the country.

“We take great pride in always having the best technology available and after extensive research and testing, we have found the most advanced air filtration and purification system on the market today," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “The powerful combination of UVDI’s V-PAC™ system and Synergy’s engineering expertise will provide Barona with even cleaner air than we have now and we are very excited for our guests and staff to experience the results.”

Barona has been testing the UVDI V-PAC™ air cleaning purification system for the past several months in the casino’s Off-Track Betting Room. An independent air quality testing company, Western Environmental Services, was brought in to measure the results and confirmed that the V-PAC system™ was extremely effective in reducing Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) concentrations to extremely low levels and  also  highly effective in handling spikes caused by  cigarette contaminants.

“We are so pleased and proud that Barona is the first casino in the country to utilize the UVDI VPAC™ three-Stage system,” said Roger Kiesling, LEED® Certified Western Regional Sales Manager for UVDI. “Barona has a reputation for always leading the industry with the best technology and equipment on the market and our system is the best available for air filtration and odor removal. We can’t wait for Barona’s staff and players to experience the improvement this is going to make in the air quality.”

To maximize the benefits of the V-PAC™ air purification system, Barona has also taken steps to significantly increase the air circulation throughout the casino. Recently, 150 perforated air returns in the casino were replaced with technologically advanced louvered returns which increased air flow by 66 percent.   

“Barona is all about creating a fun and enjoyable gaming experience for our players and a great work environment for our staff and we believe that includes providing the best indoor air quality possible,” added Salinas. “We are really excited for our guests and our staff to experience the results of this new system because once it is up and running they will be breathing extremely clean and more pure air.”

<![CDATA[Barona Resort & Casino Shares Holiday Magic and a Trip Down Memory Lane with its Gingerbread Village]]>

Barona Resort & Casino has unveiled a magical gingerbread village called “Barona’s North Pole” which was created by members of Barona’s award-winning culinary team.  The village was the creation of Chef de Cuisine Erin DePompeo and Chef de Partie Ashley Rodney and with help from Chef Jose Barajas.

Measuring 50 feet long, the gingerbread village welcomes guests to Barona’s bustling food court and entrance to the Season’s Fresh Buffet.  The team spent more than 900 hours creating the winter wonderland on weekends and before and after their shifts.    

“Chef Ashley and I had so much fun planning and building this village over the past year and now it is bringing us even more enjoyment as we watch all of Barona’s guests stop to look at it,” said Chef Erin DePompeo. “They are taking photos and talking about how it brings back memories of their childhood. And, every time they come back they see a new character or little detail. We are glad it is bringing so much joy to so many people.”  

The buildings, characters and intricate decorations are constructed almost entirely from edible products including butter, cinnamon, sugar, candies, chocolate, cloves, flour, fondant, gelatin molasses and shortening.  

The village was inspired by Chef Erin and Chef Ashley’s favorite holiday memories. The display features a snow covered village complete with Santa’s Workshop with three rooms including Santa’s private retreat with a roaring fireplace, tiny elves building toys in Santa’s workshop and a gift wrapping room where the elves load up gifts on Santa’s sleigh. Out front there is a miniature Christmas tree lot and a pen where Santa’s reindeer are fed and rest up for the night of delivering gifts to good girls and boys.  Other areas of the village include a scene with beloved characters including Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, a polar bear plunge, a mine with elves gathering bags of coal for those who have been naughty instead of nice, a train station where an electric train can stop on its way around the display as well as a bakery, shops and even an elf tavern.

“This gingerbread village was a true labor of love for Erin, Ashley and Jose and it really captures the essence of the holidays,” said Rick Salinas general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “Everyone who stops by to see the village is amazed by all of the artistry and incredible details. This is truly one of those things that cannot be described in words.  The entire Barona Resort & Casino is beautifully decorated for the season and this incredible display is just another reason to come out and see us for the holidays.”

Barona’s gingerbread village will be on display through December 30, 2013.

<![CDATA[BARONA FREEPLAY ONLINE POKER GIVING AWAY MAIN EVENT ENTRIES]]>

Barona Freeplay Online Poker (www.baronaonlinepoker.com), the only freeplay online poker site in California where players can win real prizes, announced a major poker tournament series today. The third annual Main Event Mania series allows poker players from all over California to play online for entries into the $10,000 buy-in Main Event held annually in Las Vegas. The Main Event is the largest poker tournament – in fact, the largest tournament of any kind – anywhere in the world, with a guaranteed $10 million first place prize.


Barona’s Main Event Mania started in 2012 with just a handful of players. It has become so successful that Barona has more than doubled the prize pool for this year’s event. Main Event Mania III is a series of online poker tournaments that begins on Sunday, March 2 and culminates in a final online event on Saturday, May 17. Players who make it through will play in the Main Event Mania Finals for over $50,000 in entries, including three $10,000 Main Event seats. All final table players will win entries into either the Main Event or one of the preliminary events in the world’s best-known poker tournament, along with travel and expenses.


“Main Event Mania is one of the many ways that Barona gives back to our family of players,” said Rick Salinas, General Manager of the Barona Resort & Casino. “Barona Freeplay Online Poker has awarded our players over $500,000 in prizes since we launched the freeplay site over two years ago. This year, we’re giving every poker player in California the chance to win millions in poker’s most prestigious annual event.”


Barona Freeplay Online Poker is an entirely free online poker site that anyone of legal age can join. The poker site runs daily and weekly tournaments for great prizes, including weekend stays at the Barona Resort & Casino, restaurant gift certificates, Amazon gift cards and more. The site is 100% free - players cannot buy chips or otherwise pay to play. Barona operates the online poker site to promote its award-winning Southern California resort, casino and poker room.
