Casino Picks Not-So-Smart Name
Yet another California Native American casino has opened in the Southern California area. While we know a lot of morons go to casinos believing they will leave rich, the Morongo casino seems to be openly welcoming these people in both spirit and in name.

The Morongo Casino opened late last year and its 'interesting' name was duly noted here.
I prefer the Pachanga Casino myself; the name sounds like the sound of a slot machine paying off...
It's the name of the tribe, and been involved in casinos and gaming for quite a while - I found references back to 2000.
"The Morongo tribe has run one of the more successful gaming operations in the state. Located on a major thoroughfare between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, Calif. the tribe has taken seed money from their casino and developed a string of businesses to serve motorists on well-traveled Interstate 10. In addition the tribe has also opened a water bottling plant."
At least they're doing good with the money. :)
