Construction on the new Casino del Sol began 18 months ago. The tribe added an 18,000 square-foot convention center, two restaurants, a spa and a hotel with 215 luxury rooms.

"It's pretty exciting," president and chief development officer Mark A. Birtha told The Arizona Daily Star.

The tribe hired 350 people for the casino. Construction generated 500 jobs.
