91 workers were laid off from Lytton Casino San Pablo on Wednesday. 14 poker tables are being removed to make way for electronic gaming machines. The employees include members of the card room and food service. A tribe spokesman stated that the employees will have a chance to apply for new positions.
The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians have been unable to have Vegas style slot machines due to politics. The tribe has instead been installing electronic bingo machines. These are similar to slot machines. These machines have been more lucrative. A few table games are still operating at the casino. These include pai gow, and blackjack.
100 new electronic gaming machines will be added. This will make the total for the casino around 1,200. Currently the tribe pays 7.5% of their revenue to the city. This equal over $1 million a month.
