Pauma Band plans $300M casino expansion

The Pauma Band of Mission Indians plans a $300 million expansion of its casino in southern California.

The tribe currently operates a 1,090-slot machine casino in a temporary building. The new casino will boast 110,000 square feet of gaming space, up to 2,500 slot machines, a 400-room hotel, a spa and a six-story garage.

The project is being financed by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut. The Pauma Band has entered into a management agreement that will be sent to the National Indian Gaming Commission for approval.

The tribe hasn't decided what to call the facility.
