The Yurok Tribe of California held a ceremonial groundbreaking on Thursday for a casino and hotel on the reservation. The casino will feature 125 slot machines and a 60-room hotel. It's scheduled to open in the spring of 2014. Construction will cost $15 million, according to a solicitation for bids.
