Pauma Tribe, Mashantucket Pequot Tribe Team Up - Friday 30th of June 2006

PAUMA INDIAN RESERVATION, California – As reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune: "Indian gaming in San Diego's North County is about to get a whole lot bigger.

"Confirming rumors that have swirled for months, the Pauma Indian band and Connecticut's Mashantucket Pequot tribe, operator of the world's largest casino, Foxwoods, are to announce today a development partnership that will build a $300 million hotel-casino at Pauma.

"The Pauma-Foxwoods project will have 2,000 slot machines and a 500-room hotel, making it one of the largest in California, but still a fraction of the size of the Pequots' massive East Coast gambling complex, which has 7,100 slots and 1,400 hotel rooms.

"…The casino is expected to open in 2009, and will replace Pauma's 1,050-slot facility. It will make inland North County by far the state's pre-eminent Indian gaming corridor, with four large casinos operating more than 7,400 slots on or near a 15-mile section of state Route 76. Two smaller casinos, with 349 slots each, are scheduled to open next year on the La Jolla and Santa Ysabel reservations near Lake Henshaw…"
