Tribe Plans to Expand Casino - Wednesday 28th of December 2005

ARLINGTON, Washington As reported by the Herald Net: "The Stillaguamish Tribe is planning to cash in some of its chips to pay for expanding its Angel of the Winds Casino.

"During the 14 months since the casino opened, the tribe has made enough money to secure loans that could double the casino's size, adding 50 percent more video slot machines and a bigger restaurant, said Dave Seufert, the casino's general manager.

"...Details have not been finalized, but he expects the project to cost between $4 million and $6 million.

"The original 22,000-square-foot casino cost $19 million in construction alone. Site preparation, demolishing homes and relocating more than two dozen families cost the tribe several million dollars more.

"After the expansion is completed, the casino could end up with close to 45,000 square feet, Seufert said. No construction schedule has been set, he said.

"...With the expansion, the tribe would be close to the state's maximum of 675 video slot machines per tribe..."
