I'm very excited to announce the following news for the Tribe I work for. This is going to be great for the local economy, those that like to gamble and of course the Tribe. With a state of the art air purification system, restaurants, small events venue and more gaming area, it should be great place to visit.

New Casino Resort Planned by the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe
The Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe Board of Directors announces preparation for a casino resort on a 12-acre parcel of land on the Northeast corner of Highway 69 and the Yavpe Connector. Groundbreaking is scheduled for early fall of 2014, with completion anticipated in late winter of 2016.
Working with architectural, engineering, and interiors firm, Leo A. Daly, the Tribe envisions a destination resort that will consolidate the operations of its two current facilities - Bucky’s and Yavapai Casinos. The new state-of-the-art Casino and Hotel complex will feature approximately 50,000 square feet of Casino space with an attached 60 to 80 room upscale resort/hotel. The facility will offer restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, a central video bar and a flexible event space that will accommodate a variety of entertainment events. The facility’s “destination” design is focused on bringing more excitement and value for current customers, as well as drawing in new customers from outside the region.
The economic impact of this project to the Prescott region is estimated to be $80 million over the next 18 months. This figure is the result of an economic multiplier effect, based on the direct and indirect benefits to the region. These benefits are the result of the total project cost and related increased spending in the local economies. This multiplier effect number was provided by the Yavapai College Regional Economic Development Center.
A press conference will be held to discuss the project on Saturday, April 5, 2014, at 11:00 a.m., at the Prescott Resort and Conference Center’s Granite Mountain Room. This meeting will be open to the media, the public, and to any employees who would like to attend.
