Morongo Casino and Resort embodies the American quest for quick riches over the engrained American value of hard work. With every dollar spent you have the chance of winning thousands, which is an attractive prospect to patrons of the casino. Here, the only thing that matters is winning big or going broke trying. Many tend to do the latter do to the odds of a win. The atmosphere the décor of the casino is rich in color and elegance which shows just how profitable the gaming industry is for the biggest winners, the casino itself.
America’s fascination with the prospects of quick riches has given rise to many gambling centers to rival Las Vegas and Morongo is one in California that has met great success. However, as the gambling industry expands so do the problems associated with gambling, like addiction. Now many casinos including Morongo encourage, “Responsible Gaming,” and signs are put up throughout the casino floor to promote those views. In effect they are acknowledging and condemning the harm this industry causes to society at large while expanding operations to be able to entertain more and more patrons and thus exacerbate the problem.
America has always taken great pride in it values of hard work and earning your wealth, but the allure of quick riches funnels millions of Americans each year into casinos where all their hard earned wealth is voluntarily handed over to the casino to be turned into a new pool and a couple more slot machines.
