There also is a 3,500-square-foot card room, service bar and 2,000-square-foot, trellis-covered patio complete with a misting system. The Triple Crown Room offers off-track satellite wagering and there is a Bingo Palace. The newest dining-lounge area includes the 24-hour Fantasy Bar & Grill which specializes in top-quality steaks. The lounge features a full stage for live entertainment. An Asian-theme restaurant occupies the second level. The casino is 20 miles east of Palm Springs, Calif., north of Interstate 10 at the Golf Center Parkway exit.
