COACHELLA, CA - Spotlight 29 casino in Coachella celebrated its grand re-opening and $52 million expansion yesterday. The expansion added 150,000 square feet including $34 million to add a new 23,000-square-foot casino floor area and $18 million to build a four-level parking structure.

The casino added 36 table games, an eight-bay virtual roulette wheel and a high limit slot area. The poker room was expanded and modernized and a new lounge now serves platinum members.

The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians Tribal Chairman, Darrell Mike, said "It was a bold move because of these current economic times. But we decided to go through with the expansion. We couldn't not finish it. It was important to us to create a whole new look."

Mike said the tribe is also hoping to build a hotel in the next three years.
