Pascua Yaqui Tribe continues work on $120M gaming expansion

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona is busy working on a $120 million expansion of the Casino Del Sol.

The tribe is adding a 10-story hotel with more than 200 rooms to the facility. There will also be a 50,000-square-foot conference center, three restaurants, a lounge, pool, spa and fitness center, a new gaming salon and a parking garage for 1,100 vehicles.

Construction is due to be completed in November 2011. But a gaming executive expects to finish early and to be $25 million under budget.

"There isn't a better time to build than now," CEO Wendell Long told The Arizona Daily Star.
