Emerald Queen Casino Tacoma

Emerald Queen Casino has two locations: The Emerald Queen Hotel & Casino in Fife and this casino the Emerald Queen Casino I-5 in Tacoma.

The original Emerald Queen Casino was a Mississippi riverboat casino that was purchased by the Puyallup Tribe in 1996 and brought to the port of Tacoma.

In 2002 the tribe built a bingo hall at the present location of the Emerald Queen Casino. It opened on July 13, 2002. In time the facility was converted to a casino and expanded with the addition of three tents.

The riverboat casino was shut down in 2004 after the tribe purchased a hotel in Fife and converted it into the present day casino and hotel.

Emerald Queen $370 million replacement casino will open December 2019

July 24, 2018

Plans to develop a permanent building to replace the current structure for the Emerald Queen Casino are moving forward. The casino is located in Tacoma and owned by the Puyallup Tribe.

A study session was held by the Tacoma City Council where an update on the facility was given.

The new larger building will cost $310 million to complete. It is expected to be open by December of next year.

Located on East 29th Street, there will be a raised buffet and bar that will straddle the street. Other dining options will include a deli, a cafe that will be open 24 hours, and a sports bar.

The casino will be 310,000 square feet. An event center will be 21,000 square feet and be able to accommodate 2,000 seats for guests.

In the 1990's the tribe started their gaming industry. During this time period, it was not a financial possibility for them to build a large scale casino. They purchased a showboat and sailed it along the West Coast to it's new location on the Blair Waterway in a section owned by the tribe. Until 2004 this was the Emerald Queen Casino.

When the Blair Waterway under went an expansion project the showboat casino was closed. A Best Western Hotel in Fife was then converted into the next location for the casino.

The Tacoma location was previously used as a bingo hall. Several new tent structures were added to expand the bingo facility into a casino. This is the current location of the Emerald Queen Casino.

The Puyallup Tribe believe now is the time to build a larger and permanent casino facility.

Under the design plan, guests will have views of the surrounding area in each direction. There will be natural light. Traditional tribal baskets will inspire the colors for the exterior of the building. Carved wood elements will greet guests at the entrance of the high limit gaming area.

A hotel will be added in the next phase of development. It will cost $65 million to complete. There will be between 150 to 200 guest rooms. Meeting and conference space. A spa. Also, a restaurant located on the roof of the building. This phase of development is scheduled to be finished by the end of 2020.
