Valley View won these three major awards from the Southern California Gaming Guide. The SCGG "Best of Slots" awards were recently announced and Valley View Casino & Hotel received first place in the two most competitive categories. Valley View Casino & Hotel now holds the coveted first place titles of "Best Casino Slot Floor" and "Loosest Slots Casino" and the second place title of "Best Casino Slot Tournaments".
