SOUIX CITY, IA - The Omaha Tribe of Nebraska held a formal groundbreaking last
week for the expansion of their CasinOmaha located 40 miles south of Sioux City
in Onawa, Iowa. The tribe hopes the $3.2 million project will provide more jobs
and major revenue for its people.
Lean Spears, the operations manager, said the expansion will keep the casino
competitive with casinos in Omaha and the WinnaVegas Casino in Sloan. "We can't
just sit in the cornfield and think they're going to find us. Obviously, the
major factor was to create revenue for the tribe and to create employment
opportunities for our tribal members."
The expansion will be completed in two phases.
A new 27,000-square-foot will be built to add more casino space and a bingo
hall/entertainment center. Completion is scheduled for July.
A 5-story hotel will be added with a water park and a golf course. Its schedule
has not be set.
