STORY IDEAS

 

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is located in between the beautiful Santa Rosa and Chocolate mountain ranges in the Palm Springs Valley. The area boasts wonderful stories of celebrities, pioneers and now, entrepreneurs. Many people ask what there is to do around Palm Springs. One quickly discovers it's difficult to do everything in the area in just a few days. Whether visitors come to Fantasy Springs for gaming, golf or to enjoy the surrounding area, it offers something for everyone.
Ideas you may want to consider if your assignment brings you to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Palm Springs, CA area.

  • "Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is a short drive from Palm Springs. What is there to do if someone is staying there?” Besides gaming, playing golf, dining, taking in A-list entertainment, guests can get an in-room or cabana massage, visit the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, go for an ATV tour through the desert, visit the nearby famed Joshua Tree National Park, go shopping at the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs – El Paseo and much more. 
  • “Palm Springs has often been known as the playground of Hollywood celebrities. Do Hollywood-types frequent your resort?” Do they ever! Celebrities can be spotted often at Fantasy Springs and at Eagle Falls Golf Course. The resort hosts several high profile and charity tournaments throughout the year that feature celebrity golfers. The hotel and restaurants have also been frequented by Playboy Playmates, musicians and more.
  • “Plan a Nearby Southern California Getaway.” The price of gas still fluctuates and with the economy still uncertain, many people are looking for a less-expensive alternative to a far-away destination resort. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has it all in terms of the ultimate destination resort. Palm Springs, CA boasts an average 354 days of sunshine and Fantasy Springs features an inviting oversized pool and sundeck surrounded by palm trees. Guests can have drinks and lunch served to them as they bask in the warm desert rays. Room rates are affordable at Fantasy Springs and visitors get to skip the long drive to Las Vegas and the gas money it takes to get there.   
  • Award-winning chefs at Fantasy Springs. Several of the best chefs in the Palm Springs area can be found in the kitchens at Fantasy Springs. Executive Chef, Freddy Rieger, loves to share his east coast charm, and his recipe secrets. You just have to ask him nicely. 
  • “Who Are the Winners?” Fantasy Springs features 2,000 slots, 40 table games, the Bingo Palace and the Triple Crown Room. Big winners are made every day in the casino. Find out what players use as good luck charms. Slots and table games are also using cutting edge technology, many times without the player even noticing. Take a look at what the tech and data does.
  • “Someone in my group doesn’t gamble.” Many people would rather receive entertainment in a form other than gaming. For those not attracted by the whirr of the slots or excitement of the tables, they can take in a concert, listen to live music, “yuk it up” at the Fantasy Springs Improv Comedy Club, play golf, get a massage, enjoy a gourmet meal, relax by the pool, do some wine tasting at the 12th Floor Wine Bar & Cocktail Lounge, take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up 8,500 feet to the top of Mt. San Jacinto, go for a hike, or just watch and in-room movie.

August 22, 2011- INDIO, CA – Some people say the number seven is lucky when in comes to gambling. In many cultures, the number eight is a preferred numeral. For Cheryl T. of Indio, CA, her number is the double digit 16. Cheryl became the 16th of 36 finalists to qualify to score an extreme electronics prize package worth more than $15,000.00. Saturday night, August 20th, each contestant was called to the game stage to select a two gigabyte flash drive at random from an oversized, metal bowl. The portable storage devices bore numbers on them which corresponded to the numbers on the giant prize wheel. The game’s emcee gave the wheel a big spin, causing all 36 contestants to wait in eager anticipation, if even only for a minute. When the wheel landed, a big yell came from the crowd of about 250 people gathered for the event. Cheryl had selected the #16 flash drive, and rounding out the lucky number trifecta, the “16” space is where the prize wheel came to stop. Cheryl made her way to the stage, smiling the whole way. She smiled even bigger when she found out all the high ticket electronics of which she instantly became the owner. Cheryl took home a Sharp 60” LED television, a Bose Lifestyle T20 Home Theater System, a 16” Apple MacBook Pro, an Apple 27” iMac with Epson Artisan 835 printer, a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 3 Headphones, a Sony full HD 3D Camcorder, an arcade Ms. Pac Man retro video game, a Funpop Popper Cart with accessories, a Bose System for a computer, and $1,000 Best Buy gift card. She said she plans on buying a Kindle with the Best Buy gift card. Incidentally, a Kindle was one of the weekly promotion prizes that had eluded her. The HD 3D 55” television is the first flat screen TV she’s ever owned. The Ms. Pac Man machine can be set to play either for free or for a charge.  She joked about setting it up to play with quarters to charge her girlfriends to play on it.

July 14, 2011- INDIO, CA – The average person may not know the name Peter Allen, though chances are he or she has heard his hit music. He’s the musical master behind hit songs of the 1970s and 1980s, “I Honestly Love You” performed by Olivia Newton-John, “Don’t Cry Out Loud” sung by Melissa Manchester, “Arthur’s Theme” by Christopher Cross and more. The next LIVE at LIT benefit performance at Fantasy Springs highlights the three major performance periods of Peter Allen’s life – the music he wrote and performed for the women in his life (Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli), his extensive pop music hits, and the songs and theater productions he penned for Broadway and stages across the world. Singer and dancer Paul MacKey, along with the Fabulous Bird Award Dancers (all local law professionals), take the audience through this rousing night celebrating the showmanship and contribution to musical theater and pop music of Peter Allen. The show takes place in LIT Lounge at Fantasy Springs on Wednesday, August 17th at 7:00p.m. The ticket price of $40 includes a gourmet light buffet and no-host bar. All proceeds from the event benefit The Well in the Desert’s food programs, feeding more than 5,000 of the Coachella Valley’s hungry every month. Call (800) 827-2946 or log onto www.FantasySpringsResort.com for tickets or more information.

Peter Allen started in show business in his native Australia as part of “The Allen Brothers,” a popular cabaret and television act in the 1960s. Allen was discovered by Judy Garland’s husband, Mark Herron, and was invited to perform with Garland. In the early 1970s, he began writing songs for other people. He co-wrote “I Honestly Love You” for Olivia Newton-John, “Don’t Cry Out Loud” for Melissa Manchester, “I’d Rather Leave While I’m in Love” by Rita Coolidge and “Arthur’s Theme” for Christopher Cross. Allen could still be seen on stage, however. He was the first male dancer to dance with the Rockettes and rode a camel into Radio City Music Hall.

July 14, 2011- INDIO, CA – Hundreds of people gathered inside Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and crowded around the game stage on Saturday night, July 9th. At question, who would win the brand new, 328i BMW the resort/casino was giving away that night. Finalist Carmen Alvidrez of Palm Desert had a big need for a new car, and she had a good feeling about the competition that night. Forty two finalists vied sit in the driver’s seat of the gunmetal gray ultimate driving machine. Each finalist approached the game stage and chose a keychain at random. Each keychain bore a number on it, corresponding to the numbers on the giant prize wheel on the stage. As the game’s emcee spun the prize wheel, each contestant clutched their keychain, hoping luck would stop on his or her number. The wheel clicked through to the No. 20 spot and a big shriek came from Carmen Alvidrez. “I’m speechless!” she exclaimed. “I can’t believe it. I am so happy, I could cry.” Carmen said the biggest thing she ever won was a $4,000 jackpot at Fantasy Springs a few years ago. Carmen drove home from Fantasy Springs in the brand new, $45,000 luxury car, but she said she will give the car to her daughter. “She works so hard and needs a reliable car,” explained Carmen. Her daughter manages a local medical clinic and according to Carmen, needs to drive to San Diego twice a month for her job. The BMW will still be in the family so Carmen said she will be able to drive it once in a while.

IT'S A HOMECOMING FOR ONE OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA'S BEST, AS ANTONIO DIAZ BATTLES ERNESTO ZEPEDA ON AUGUST 12 AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO IN INDIO, CALIF.

 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - JULY 13, 2011
 
 

LOS ANGELES, July 13 – As one of the first fighters to put Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on the boxing map, longtime contender and Coachella Valley product Antonio “Toño” Diaz has set a standard of excellence many boxers have tried to reach. On Friday, August 12, in the main event of TeleFutura’s “Solo Boxeo Tecate,” Diaz will fight in the Indio, Calif. venue he helped build, for the first time in nearly 10 years when he takes on Ernesto Zepeda in a 10-round junior middleweight bout.

The bout will be Diaz’ 17th at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and his first since a 2001 technical knockout over Orlando Hollis on October 12. He is unbeaten in the venue at 16-0 and looks to make it 17-0 on August 12.

Diaz vs. Zepeda is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, DeWalt Tools and AT&T.  Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:30pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT). 

Fans at home can also be part of the action by participating in Cinturón Tecate and voting for the fighter in the main event who displayed the most character in the ring by sending a text message to 55333. Voting will be open through the end of the weekend.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45 are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com

An all-action fighter who has never disappointed fight fans with his memorable performances in the ring, 35-year-old Antonio Diaz (45-6-1, 29 KOs) has always stepped up to fight the best. A veteran of 16 years in the pro game, Diaz has defeated the likes of Cory “The Next Generation” Spinks, Emanuel “Outlaw” Augustus, Ivan Robinson and Micky “Irish” Ward. Winner of four of his last fight bouts since returning from a three year layoff in 2008, with his only loss coming against current WBC Welterweight Champion “Vicious” Victor Oritz, Diaz is eager to return to the ring where he first made his mark in 1995.

A 15-year veteran who, like Diaz, came up the hard way in the ring, Ernesto Zepeda (39-14-4, 34 KOs) also resembles his opponent in that he never backs down from a challenge. A 34-year-old native of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico who has taken on the likes of Steve Forbes, Matthew Hatton, Demetrius Hopkins and Diaz’ brother, former World Champion Julio Diaz, Zepeda is training for an all out battle on August 12 and he knows “Toño” will give him one on fight night.

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate,” which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today’s up-and-coming prospects.  Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions’ marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum “Tecate Museo de Boxeo,” which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.

July 6, 2011- INDIO, CA – Since the very first commercials and programs aired on television, viewers have wanted to interact in some way with their TV sets. Some people yell out answers to questions on game shows from the comfort of their living rooms, others express which woman a bachelor should choose on reality shows. In partnership with Time Warner Cable, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is happy to announce that it is the very first resort in the country to bring cable viewers in the Coachella Valley the chance to interact with advertisements they see on television. Through a groundbreaking program called iTV, whenever a viewer sees a featured advertiser’s announcement on TV, he or she will also see a message appear on the lower third of their screen. By pressing the “A,” “B” or “C” button on the Time Warner Cable remote control, that viewer controls the subsequent lower third message that appears on their screen. With the ability to “choose your own ending” (just like some schoolchildren’s books), viewers may be able to provide an opinion on Fantasy Springs’ products and services, engage in a trivia game, respond to win prizes or discounts, and reply to an offer and have it mailed to their homes. This initial test run of the iTV program runs for four weeks, with Fantasy Springs being one of only three companies involved in the Palm Springs area. During that four week period, the resort/casino gives interacting viewers the chance to win luxurious stay and play packages including golf, dining and hotel.

The iTV program was first rolled out in Charlotte, NC. Time Warner Cable found it to be very successful for their viewers and advertisers, but wanted to test it in other television markets. The program now is being trialed in both Palm Springs and San Diego. Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley has one of the highest concentrations of cable subscribers per capita in the country, which is why Time Warner Cable set its sights on the desert area. (Quote from Don Casper here – “This program is so exciting yet unconventional in the realm of television advertising,” says Don Casper, Vice President of Marketing at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. “As an advertiser, you always look for ways to keep the audience engaged, especially now in ever-increasing DVR usage.” Casper says he thinks that iTV is a digitally savvy tool for advertisers. If Fantasy Springs’ initial test run with the program returns positive viewer immersion, Casper says the company will heavily consider the new advertising mechanism as an ongoing campaign. “iTV can help make smart marketers even smarter,” says Mike Czerwinski, GM of Desert Cities and San Diego for Time Warner Cable Media. “That’s why we are so excited to have Fantasy Springs as a trial partner. Together, we will learn how to better engage their fans and create messages that truly resonate.”

June 27, 2011- INDIO, CA – Weezer fans in southern California are in luck because the band is making a one-night only performance at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Mark your calendar for August 27th at 8:00 p.m., because at Fantasy Springs the Grammy Award-winning group will perform a set that will please die-hard Weezer fans including greatest hits, favorite tracks from throughout their career, and songs from Hurley.

Weezer’s Epitaph Records release Hurley entered the Billboard 200 at #6 and marked the band’s sixth consecutive Top 10 album release.  The band quickly followed that album with the release of Death To False Metal (DGC/UMe), an album created utilizing the basic tracks of 10 previously unreleased recordings to assemble a brand new and truly modern-sounding record.  The two-CD Pinkerton – Deluxe Edition  (DGC/UMe), released in November 2010, features the original Weezer-produced album in remastered form, along with 25 contemporaneous bonus tracks, including every official B-side and 16 previously unreleased recordings. 

Describing their latest full US tour, MTV said that “there was a special feeling in the air, a feeling that you were being treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” while the SF Weekly simply stated: “There is literally nothing else we could've possibly asked for from this set of controlled chaos... Better than: Almost everything. Seriously.”

June 21, 2011- INDIO, CA – Retired Palm Desert man Carl S. spent a Fathers Day he won’t soon forget at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in the Palm Springs area. Treating himself to some time at a Pot ‘O Gold $0.01 game, Carl says he won some and then lost some money as he played over the course of an hour. After that, however, he followed his luck over the rainbow as his machine came up with the winning combination to score Carl the progressive jackpot amount of $15,177.00. “At first I thought someone else had won because I didn’t realize the jackpot song (coming from the machine) was coming from my game,” admits Carl. He says he does not have any immediate plans for his winnings, though he did not think it would be hard to treat himself to something else nice for Fathers Day.

Players win every day at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. You could be next.

LOS ANGELES, June 21 – Independence Day weekend will get off to an explosive start at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California on Friday, July 1, when two of boxing’s rising stars - Frankie Gomez and Randy Caballero - enter the ring in a quest to keep their unbeaten records intact against upset-minded foes.

In the main event of TeleFutura's “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” broadcast, East Los Angeles’ Gomez takes on Kadaphi Proctor in an eight round junior welterweight bout.  The evening’s co-featured bout will see Fantasy Springs favorite Caballero battle fellow unbeaten Alexis Santiago in an eight round matchup for the vacant WBC intercontinental youth super bantamweight title.

This night of world-class professional boxing is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate, DeWalt Tools and AT&T.  Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:30pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT). 

Fans at home can also be part of the action by participating in Cinturón Tecate and voting for the fighter in the main event who displayed the most character in the ring by sending a text message to 55333. Voting will be open through the end of the weekend.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45 are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.  Active or retired armed forces members who show their military ID at the Fantasy Springs Box Office on or before July 1 will receive a $5 discount.

It’s hard to believe, but 19-year-old Frankie Gomez (9-0, 7 KO’s) is already entering his second year as a professional boxer.  With wins in all nine of his bouts and rave reviews coming from all corners, it’s easy to forget how young he is.  The East Los Angeles native isn’t about to slow down, and after a 25 second knockout of Jason Davis in his most recent bout in April, he’s showing that he’s ready for all comers.

Hesperia’s 26-year-old Kadaphi Proctor (7-5-1) rebounded from some early bumps in the road during his four-year career to win his last three bouts.  Most important was his last victory, a six round win over unbeaten Stan Martyniouk that saw him drop the highly-touted prospect three times en route to the upset.  On July 1, he will look to show that lightning can strike twice.

Undefeated in six fights at Fantasy Springs, Coachella’s Randy Caballero (11-0, 7 KO’s) has repeatedly packed the venue with fans eager to see his heavy hands at work.  At just 20 years old, he’s fighting for his first title and, with a three fight knockout streak going with wins over Felix Perez, Francis Ruiz and Sergio Cristobal, he’s aiming to make Alexis Santiago his next knockout victim.

20 years old and unbeaten like his July 1opponent, Phoenix’s Alexis Santiago (7-0-1, 2 KO’s) wants to separate himself from the pack by scoring a big win over Caballero on national television.  A professional since 2009, Santiago has impressive skills and speed in the ring and he’s aware that he’ll need his full tool set to turn back Caballero in their eagerly-anticipated title fight.

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate,” which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today’s up-and-coming prospects.  Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions’ marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum “Tecate Museo de Boxeo,” which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.

May 23, 2011 - INDIO, CA – One lucky local man said he’s going to have a much more fun summer after winning a brand new Porsche Boxter at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Robert R. from Cathedral City, CA was one of 24 finalists at the resort/casino playing for the $60,000 luxury sports car on Saturday, May 21st. One by one, the finalists walked up to the game stage and selected a keychain at random. Each keychain bore a number; those numbers corresponding to spaces on the prize wheel on the stage. Robert’s keychain was #21. As the emcee spun the wheel, all contestants and the hundreds of spectators looked on in anticipation. When the wheel slowed and finally came to a stop, an initial silence fell on the crowd. No one yelled or jumped up to claim the car. After about 15 seconds, Robert looked up and shouted, “oh, that’s me!” in disbelief. “I couldn’t believe it,” the winner said excitedly. “I forgot my number at first so I initially thought it wasn’t me.” Robert said he told his son that he should win the car since his son already has a Porsche and since Robert previously owned one of the first Porsche Boxters about 10 years ago. Robert, who is recently retired, told Fantasy Springs staff that he will have a lot of fun driving the sports car around town. To see video and hear from Robert right after he found out he won, visit http://youtu.be/24Mr4rSdPu4.

3 HUGE JACKPOTS HIT AT
FANTASY SPRINGS IN 3 DAYS

 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MAY 7, 2011

May 7, 2011- INDIO, CA – Something is certainly in the air at Fantasy Springs and if big jackpots are any indication, it’s luck. On Saturday, May 7th, 23-year old Raymond Martinez of Monrovia, CA headed east to Fantasy Springs with his grandfather and brother for a day of fun in the casino. Raymond says his grandfather enjoys some leisure time at casinos so the dutiful grandson tries to take him for a gaming outing about every other month. After playing a few different Wheel of Fortune® slot machines, Raymond says he wandered over to one $0.25 Wheel of Fortune® game. He had only put about $10 into the new machine, saying “I was maybe on the 10th spin.” “I watched the reels and remember the sound they made. One reel stopped on the middle line with the Wheel of Fortune® symbol showing. It made a kind of “plunk” sound. Then the one next to it and the last one did that, too. I thought, ‘oh wow.’” Raymond started shaking because the machine instantly flashed the word “jackpot” across the LED screen. Then he looked up and saw the progressive jackpot amount he won - $163,584.00. Raymond believes his huge jackpot came from divine intervention. He says he’s been praying to quit his job as a cable installer and have the means to go back to school. “Oh, I’m quitting on Monday,” he said confidently. He also says he looks forward to telling his pastor on Sunday about his good news from Saturday. “I told him I had a feeling that I’d be quitting my job soon,” says Raymond. He is currently involved in a pastoral internship at his church and plans to major in pastoral studies when he enrolls in college.

Just two days prior, two men playing separate games at Fantasy Springs also received major pay days. George Hayes, a retiree from Hemet, CA, came into the resort on a casino-hopping trip with a friend. Fantasy Springs was their last stop before heading home. George simply walked up to a 1¢ Super Spin Wheel of Fortune® machine and put in $40 or $50. Not long after that, he watched five Wheel of Fortune® symbols line up across the center line and knew it had to mean something big. That “something big” turned out to be $1,127,123.88. He said he didn’t know just yet what he would do with the money from his big win, though he said it would certainly help him live more comfortably. His million dollar jackpot also came on the exact same day on the calendar as back in 1985 when his wife won a $250,000 jackpot at a Las Vegas casino. She has since passed away and George thinks it was her giving him so much luck.

Claude Dickerson of Indio, CA says he and his wife have been playing at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino for years. While they have taken home some jackpots in the neighborhood of $1,200 previously, Cinco de Mayo, 2011 was their lucky night. At nearly the same time that George Hayes won the more than $1 million jackpot, Claude placed a side bet on a Pai Gow Poker table in case he was dealt a straight flush. That’s exactly what happened. Claude held a straight flush – 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 of Hearts. He knew he had a good hand. What he didn’t know immediately was that it was good enough to win him the entire progressive jackpot. “I wasn’t sure whether the straight flush would have to be a royal straight flush,” Claude explained. No royals needed at his Pai Gow Poker game for the progressive win. Claude said he was awestruck that he won $163,425.82 on one hand. He and his wife already planned a trip to Antigua, a trip she bid on while attending the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Invitational at Fantasy Springs in February 2011. Now the couple says they will have some spending money for the trip. They both frequently visit Fantasy Springs and say they will definitely be back.

Winners are made every day at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and you could be next.

TELEFUTURA’S “SÓLO BOXEO TECATE” RETURNS TO<
FANTASY SPRINGSON JUNE 3

LEO SANTA CRUZ VS. JOSE “CARITA” LOPEZAND RANDY CABALLERO ON TAP

 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MAY6, 2011
 
 

LOS ANGELES, May 6, 2011 – Friday, June 3, is the date for an all-action event at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif., as TeleFutura’s “Sólo Boxeo Tecate” delivers an explosive lineup of bouts featuring rising star Leo Santa Cruz battling former World Champion Jose “Carita” Lopez in a eight-round bantamweight fight and Coachella’s Randy Caballero in a six round bout against an opponent to be named.

This night of world-class professional boxing is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and is sponsored by Cerveza Tecate and AT&T.  Doors open at 6:00pm PT on fight night and the first bell rings at 7:00pm PT.  The TeleFutura broadcast begins at 11:30pm ET / PT (10:30pm CT). 

Fans at home can also be part of the action by participating in Cinturón Tecate and voting for the fighter in the main event who displayed the most character in the ring by sending a text message to 55333. Voting will be open through the end of the weekend.

Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45 are on sale now and available for purchase at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

22-year-old Lincoln Heights, California native, Leo “Teremoto” Santa Cruz (15-0-1, 7 KO’s) is a fighter whose accurate power shots have sent five consecutive opponents to the canvas in defeat.  In March, Santa Cruz earned his first professional title when he knocked out 20-2 Stephane Jamoye with a body shot in the sixth round to win the interim WBC Youth World Bantamweight Championship.  He will attempt to add to his fearsome knockout streak on June 3 in Indio when he takes on the veteran Lopez.

On June 3, one of Puerto Rico’s most beloved warriors, 39-year-old Jose “Carita” Lopez (39-9-2, 32 KO’s) returns to Fantasy Springs for the first time since 1999, when he lost a razor thin decision to Isidro Garcia in world title fight in which Garcia famously agreed to take the fight on just a few hours notice when Lopez’s original opponent fell out at the last minute.  In March of 2009 he thrilled his fans when he won his first world title by decisioning Pramuansak Posuwan to win the vacant WBO Junior Bantamweight World Championship.  Although he lost the title six months later to unbeaten phenom Marvin Sonsona, the Trujillo Alto native believes he has another championship run in him and looks to make Santa Cruz his first target.

June 3 will be the equivalent of a home game for Coachella’s own unbeaten rising star Randy Caballero, who has competed in the Fantasy Springs ring in five of his last six bouts.  His undefeated record speaks for itself, but what is also daunting for any challenger is the large crowd that Caballero brings with him wherever he goes.  He packs power in his fists and fans in the seats and that’s bad news for any opponent who decides to step into the ring with the 20 year old phenom, who continues to build his fan base and improve his skills with each passing fight.

Tecate, cerveza con carácter, is the largest beer brand to sponsor boxing matches in the U.S. Part of its commitment to make boxing accessible to consumers is the title sponsorship of “Sólo Boxeo Tecate,” which creates an opportunity for local fans to witness some of the most exhilarating fights by today’s up-and-coming prospects.  Additionally, Tecate has been a primary supporter of Golden Boy Promotions’ marquee events since 2007, and has launched a variety of initiatives to ensure consumers are part of the boxing experience, including boxer autograph signing sessions, commemorative cans, PPV mail-in rebate offers, and most recently the launch of a mobile museum “Tecate Museo de Boxeo,” which showcases decades of the most memorable moments in the sport.

Caballero’s opponent and a full undercard will be announced shortly.

April 18, 2011- INDIO, CA – In honor of April 22nd, Earth Day 2011, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Cabazon Indians are happy to report resounding results from its ongoing Resort Recycling Program and the recent Hazardous Household Waste Roundup. Every month, thousands of pounds of recyclable materials are collected, sorted and deposited at local recycling plants and kept out of area landfills through the conscientious efforts of the resort’s team members. From April 1, 2010 to April 1, 2011, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino’s recycling engineers ensured the following amounts of refuse items became reincarnated: 

  • Plastic                              7,017 lbs.
  • Aluminum                        3,877 lbs.
  • Glass                                54,312 lbs.
  • E-waste                             8,400 lbs.
  • Cardboard                         108 tons/216,000 lbs.
  • Green waste                      111 tons/222,000 lbs. (from Eagle Falls Golf Course and Fantasy Springs landscapers)
  • Printer Cartridges              260 

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Cabazon band also employ a company-wide recycling program. In nearly every office, employee common area and other locales throughout the resort, blue recycling receptacles can be found. People can deposit paper, plastics, bottles and cans into these blue bins. The contents are then collected, sorted and recycled. The resort’s full-time recycling engineer also sorts through the trash collected on the property and picks out any aluminum, plastic or glass bottles, or any other recyclable materials. Since the resort’s large-scale recycling program was started in
October of 2009. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino also recycles at least two four-foot by
five-foot bales of cardboard every day. Waste experts say cardboard and paper materials are some of the worst items that can end up in landfills because they absorb moisture which then can breed bacteria. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians plan to expand their eco-friendly efforts within the year and remain committed to the programs already in place.

Hundreds of people came to the free Household Hazardous Waste Roundup event held at Fantasy Springs at the end of March 2011. Four tons or 8,000 pounds of hazardous items from people’s homes were disposed of at this eco-friendly event. Items such as paint, oil, corrosives, pesticides, e-waste, toxic solids and much more were dropped off, taken away by experts and disposed of properly.

The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians and Fantasy Springs Resort Casino management are very happy so many of the area’s residents embraced the need to dispose of the above materials in an eco-friendly manner. The tribe and the resort partnered with a hazardous waste company from the Inland Empire to help collect, haul away and dispose of the hazardous household waste properly.

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino provides an oasis in the desert, featuring 30 “Best of Gaming” awards from Casino Player magazine. Offering 2,000 of the hottest slots, world-class table games, entertainment, hotel, dining and golf at Eagle Falls, Fantasy Springs Resort Casino stands to meet and exceed the needs of its guests and the community.

April 18, 2011 - INDIO, CA – Guests at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino may have noticed some heavy lifting on the gaming floor recently. That’s because the resort/casino just installed 10 of the hottest new Bally Technologies slot machines. Six Blazing Hot Tournament, two Cash Wizard™ and two Jackpot Vegas Hits penny machines now make up a section of the casino’s 2,000 slot and video poker machines. “We look at every possibility of making our gaming floor more exciting and interactive for our guests,” says Lou Crecenzo, Vice President of Gaming Operations. “These Bally games offer extra bonusing features, the opportunity to play in tournaments with other guests playing the same game and many more attractive features to slot players. These new games were installed April 13, 2011. 

The six Blazing Hot Tournament penny slot machines bring action-packed community gaming to the casino floor. They feature a 20- or 40-line base game in which players can win up to 300 credits per bet, plus bonus rounds during which guests can win up to 1,000,000 credits. When multiple players qualify for tournament rounds, large LCD screens above each game display light up to display the bonus games. The players accumulate points for winning combinations as the reels spin (such as in a standard slot tournament). At the end of the tournament round, the results are flashed on the screen and the winning payouts are added to the players’ credit totals based on how they placed.

The two Bally Jackpot Vegas Hits present a unique gaming experience because it is the first slot game to feature two bonus wheels with U-Spin™ play mechanic. The lower wheel, the bonus wheel, is controlled by the player. When a bonus event occurs, the player touches the game screen and the wheel responds to his or her hand movements. Whatever space the wheel lands on determines what happens next. One space on the lower wheel is special – the money wedge. It allows the player to spin the highly coveted upper wheel, The Money Wheel. Every space on the Money Wheel awards a cash amount, up to 1,000 times the total max bet. The retro Vegas themed penny slot offers 16 different bonus games which interact in various ways with the U-Spin™- powered bonus wheel.

The Cash Wizard™ slots at Fantasy Springs offer a three-level progressive and five bonus features, including a spinning bonus wheel at the top of each of them.

In addition to the new Bally Technologies games, Fantasy Springs also became the first casino in California to introduce players to new electro-mechanic, ergonomically correct games by Interblock. Fantasy Springs features two of Interblock’s “Organic” series games, a 16-player craps and roulette console and a seven-person station for blackjack. Lou Crecenzo observes that these consoles are quickly becoming very popular with players as every spot is often occupied.
