The original bingo hall opened in 1983.
The bingo hall later became the original Casino Morongo in 1992 (1st anniversary chips are dated 1993).
A new building opened in 1995 still under the Casino Morongo name.
The expanded Morongo Casino Resort & Spa was opened on Dec 10, 2004, the Casino Morongo was then used for bingo, bowling and special events after the new Morongo Casino opened (no longer any real gambling at Casino Morongo).
In 2018 when the newer Morongo Casino was expanded, a few hundred slots were moved to the reopened & remodeled Morongo Casino and gambling resumed at the smaller location.
There also is a Morongo Travel Center with ~40 slots that opened in 1979 and is still open currently; this is a gas station and convenience store with slots only.

On July 6, 2019, Lee Greenwood appeared in concert at Morongo. For it, the casino released a 4-denomination set of chips. Each with a different image of Mr. Greenwood, and different patriotic designs on the other side. Reverse: bald eagle and flag, lines from the chorus of his hit song "Proud to Be an American." You have to collect all four to get the entire chorus lyrics.
