Graton Rancheria casino not seen as risk for northern Nevada

Gaming experts don't expect non-Indian facilities in northern Nevada to take much of a hit when the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria opens its casino in California next week.

Reno draws patrons from Sacramento, gaming experts said. The $825 million Graton Resort and Casino is closer to San Francisco.

“We don’t get a lot of play from San Francisco addresses. Sacramento and (locations) closer to Nevada are far more important to us,” Ferenc Szony, the CEO of Truckee Gaming, told The Reno Gazette-Journal.

The Graton casino opens November 5.
