The Spokane Tribe will open its long-awaited casino in Washington on January 8, 2018.
The Spokane Tribe Casino is located in Airway Heights. The facility, which is expected to grow in the coming years, will feature 450 slot machines, 12 table games, a restaurant and bar, a deli and a gaming floor bar, according to news reports.
“Many supporters of the Spokane Tribe Economic Project helped with our efforts to make the casino become a reality, and we are grateful to share this celebration with them,” Chairwoman Carol Evans said in a press release quoted by The Spokesman-Review.
It took the tribe over 10 years to win final approval for the Spokane Tribe Economic Project. Approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, as well as the state governor, was needed because the 145-acre site had been acquired after the passage of the Indian
Gaming Regulatory Act in 1988.
It’s time.....Spokane Tribe Casino will open January 8 at 7pm. Thank you to everyone for your continued support, we are so blessed.
