POINT NO POINT CASINO WILL BE REPLACED BY NEW RESORT CASINO-HOTEL
PORT GAMBLE, WA - The Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe will replace their Point No Point Casino late next year with a new $100 million casino resort. The Point No Point Casino will remain open until the first phase of construction is finished around Thanksgiving 2009.
The ground breaking for the first phase will be in July or August. It includes the new 100,000 square-foot casino with 975 slot machines 18-20 table games, poker tables, a fine dining restaurant, 3 bars, a buffet, and live entertainment.
The second phase will be a 13-15 floor hotel with a dance club on top. The tribe is also trying to buy 120 more acres for a future shopping center and community surrounded by hiking and walking trails.
The Point No Point Casino opened in February 2002 with a 10,000-square-foot gaming floor and 150 slot machines. Overtime it expanded to 17,000 square feet with 580 slots.
Leo Culloo, the casino GM, said "We outgrew the facility the day it opened. As soon as we opened the doors we started looking into what it would take for redesign. We need to build a facility that meets the needs of our current and projected customers. With the current space and size limitations there is not enough room for the young crowd."
