The Augustine Band of Cahuilla Indians is undertaking the first major renovation project of its casino in southern California.

The Augustine Casino will close on September 19. When it reopens about a month later, guests will be able to enjoy and entirely an improved facility with entirely new paint, carpet, wall-covering, lighting, signage and more, the tribe said. Exterior work has already begun.

"Rest assured, when we reopen, we will continue to operate in our 14-year tradition — offering locals the very best value on the loosest slots around, a great dining experience and the friendliest team in the valley," Jef Bauer said in a press release. "I promise we’ll hurry and, soon, it will all be available in a brand new beautiful casino environment."

The casino opened in 2002.
