Approval has been given by the US Department of the Interior for expansion plans
to move forward on The Desert Diamond Casino West. Currently the casino is
located in a temporary building and operates over 1,000 electronic bingo
The casino located in Glendale, Arizona, is owned by the Tohono O’odham Nation.
The tribe has faced many legal issues over the casino. The conflict was based
over land that was purchased after 2002. That was the year that the tribe
negotiated their first gaming compact. After many years of court battles, it was
agreed that the Tohono O’odham could open a gaming venue, but not a Class III
casino in the phoenix area for at least 15 years.
The terms of that agreement has been met per the DOI.
The approval will bring changes to the gaming compact between Arizona and the
tribe. The casino will be able to convert from a Class II gaming license to a
Class III gaming license. Under this new license the casino will be able to
operate table games and traditional slot machines.
With the newly approved expansion project, the casino will be adding 75 table
games, 1,089 slot machines, a convention center, 5 restaurants, and a hotel with
600 guest rooms.
$400 million is the cost for the new expansion project.
