A handful of tribes in San Diego, California, are seeing an improvement in their gaming business, prompting multi-million dollar expansion and renovation projects.

The Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians is nearly finished with a $160 million expansion. The project includes a new hotel tower that will give the Harrah’s Rincon Casino & Resort the largest number of rooms at any tribal facility in the entire state.

Meanwhile, the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians just finished an $6 million "extreme" makeover of the Valley View Casino. And the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians unveiled a $36 million hotel at the Viejas Casino last year.

A new player is coming to the county too. The Jamul Indian Village started work on a $360 million casino that's due to open in late 2015.
