GALLUP, NM - The Navajo Nation will open their first casino, Fire Rock Navajo Casino, on Wednesday. The casino is located just east of Gallup, NM on old route 66, half a mile east of interstate 40, exit 26 in Church Rock, New Mexico. The area is well known for its amazing rock formations and is close to the Red Rock State Park.
Fire Rock Casino will open in a temporary, tent-like structure featuring 64,000 square feet, 472 slot machines,10 table games, a poker room, a 400-seat bingo hall and two upscale restaurants. It is the first of six casinos planned by the tribe. They will build one more in New Mexico and four in Arizona.
"We're just barely getting started, but I sense that a lot of tribes are afraid of Navajos getting into gaming, being as large as we are," said Navajo Vice President Ben Shelly.
The Fire Rock Casino is expected to generate $32 million in annual revenue for the Navajo Nation.
