Navajo Casinos will remain closed through August

August 21, 2020

The Navajo Nation will not reopen its casinos this month, and no plans for September have been announced.

The shutdown is causing extreme financial stress on the Navajo Nation and forced the layoff 88% of the casino workers earlier this month.

Although other tribal casinos have reopened across Arizona and New Mexico, Navajo Nation Gaming Chairman, Quincy Natay, says:

"As the first tribal casino to close on March 17th, and possibly the last to reopen, Navajo Nation Gaming will offer 'best-in-class' safety measures and a 'trusted-space' environment for our patrons and team members when it is safe to reopen."

Navajo Nation Gaming operates three casinos in New Mexico and one in Arizona:

Fire Rock Casino
Church Rock, New Mexico 87311

Flowing Waters Navajo Casino
Waterflow, New Mexico 87421

Northern Edge Navajo Casino
Farmington, NM 87401

Laguna Pueblo planning race track and casino in Curry County

May 27, 2018

The Laguna Pueblo already owns two casinos, restaurants, hotels, and gas stations. Now they are looking into developing a new business that will not be located on their land.

It would be located near Clovis in Curry County. The project would be a race track and casino. This is not the first time the tribe has attempted to expand their gaming industry off of their reservation.

Off reservation gaming has been part of their plans for many years.

In 2011 the tribe made their first attempt to build a racino in Albuquerque at the fairgrounds. The bid for the project was rejected. The surrounding community was also opposed to the project.

In 2016 the tribe then attempted to purchase a riverboat in Lake Charles owned by the Isle of Capri. Over $20 million was lost when the project was not approved.

In ten years, $100 million has been earned from the different businesses owned by the pueblo.

In 2013 records from Tribal Council meetings show the growing concern of revenue from their two casinos and their other businesses becoming stagnant. Dancing Eagle Casino and Route 66 Casino are both owned by the tribe. Expanding their sources of revenue became of interest.

The racino in Curry County is in the beginning development of plans. Applications have not been submitted so far to the New Mexico Racing Commission.
