Mexican Caliente casino reopens its doors

It is now the largest casino in the country

Caliente’s history has come alive again for the 21st century with the grand reopening of the new Caliente casino. A USD 26 million renovation project has truly transformed Caliente into a world-class operation.

Long before there was a Las Vegas, there was Tijuana and the Agua Caliente Casino and Resort. From the moment the casino opened in 1928, wealthy sophisticates and Hollywood stars flocked south of the border to enjoy the hospitality and excitement, gaming, spa, casino, horse racing and world-class entertainment.

„Caliente once again takes its place as it did for many years providing the finest gaming and entertainment in Mexico,“ said Francisco Lecuona, Marketing Director. „We are pleased to welcome guests from both sides of the border to see the new excitement Caliente has to offer.“

No need to drive all the way to Las Vegas and spend money on putting gas in the tank when you could put that money into the latest exciting games or make a bet at the Caliente sports book. And unlike the region’s tribal casinos, the only place you’ll find sports betting, shopping, and entertainment outside of Las Vegas is at Caliente.

Covering 21,181 sqm, Caliente is now the largest casino in Mexico. Among the new world-class features at Caliente are the Las Vegas style entryway, remodeled racing and sports books, traditional bingo halls, gaming halls, sports betting, international restaurants, shopping, and piano bar.

Players will enjoy trying out 1,333 new bingo-based electronic games with the latest themes from the hottest names in the industry including Bally Gaming, Recreativos Franco, FB, and FBM.

Later this year, the Caliente soccer stadium will expand its seating from 13,000 to 33,000 seats, making it Mexico’s newest and most modern sports facility. In March 2009, a 39,483 sqm entertainment center including restaurants, bars and nightclubs, amusement park, a convention center and perhaps a hotel will be completed.

Caliente employs eight thousand men and women nationwide trained to the highest professional standards, making it one of Baja California’s largest employers.

Its new look and new entertainment options are sure to attract a large share of the northern Baja California audience currently patronizing tribal casinos in Southern California, as well as Americans looking for a new and unique experience.
