In the mid-1980s, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians invested in a high-stakes bingo operation, San Manuel Indian Bingo, near Highland, Calif. The bingo operation was enormously successful and in 1994 expanded to include a 100,000 square foot casino including a card room and slot machines, and soon after changed its name to San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.
In an effort to secure San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino's position as one of the leading entertainment destinations in Southern California the tribe embarked in 2003 on an amenity enhancement project to provide more gaming. The property opened in January 2005 and is expected to generate over $200 million in economic stimulus to the surrounding communities by providing hundreds of new jobs to Inland Empire residents through new vendor relationships, construction and architectural partnerships and employment opportunities.
San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino currently employs over 4000 people and is one of the largest employers in the Inland Empire.
San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino generates revenue used to maintain governmental operations, provide for the general welfare of the tribe and healthcare needs, supply infrastructure needs such as roads, and to support continued economic development.
The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians dedicates significant resources from gaming to various philanthropic causes through its charitable donations to others in the community.
The tribe pays millions of dollars to local governments may improve roads support local municipalities, fund fire and police services and to keep the community free from litter all while beautifying the surrounding areas.
