In 1999, the Tipai Band of Kumeyaay Indians, with 64 members living on 6 acres (24,000 m2) of sovereign land in the Jamul area designated the "Jamul Indian Village," announced their intent to develop a new hotel and casino.
There was some opposition. The chief concern was the increased traffic on the main road through the town, Highway 94. The proposed casino location was such that all the traffic to and from would likely pass through the middle of the town.
The tribe went ahead with casino. Penn National Gaming became the developer, lender and manager of a $400 million Hollywood Casino in collaboration with the Jamul Indian Village. Hollywood Casino Jamul - San Diego opened on October 10, 2016. The casino included a three-story gaming and entertainment facility of approximately 200,000 square feet, featuring over 1,700 slot machines, 40 live table games, multiple restaurants, bars and lounges and an enclosed below grade parking structure with approximately 1,800 spaces.
