The Muckleshoot Casino is about to get bigger with more amenities.

The tribe announced last week that the casino would soon undergo a significant upgrade and expansion, to include a new, overall floor plan, greater food options, expanded gaming space, a large events center and a larger smoke-free area.

“Our focus has always been on continual improvement of our casino operations and providing our customers a first-class experience,” Muckleshoot Tribal Council Chair Virginia Cross said in a press release. “This latest remodel-and-expansion project will keep our casino business strong, ensure that our customers get great value for their entertainment dollar and meet our responsibility to our community members.”

Since it opened in 1995 in a 13,000-square-foot tent, the Muckleshoot Casino has realized a number of expansion-and-improvement projects. The tribe expects to complete this latest project in early 2020, to include:

• A 20,000 square-foot, technically-advanced events-and-conference center divisible into five sections, with an overall seating capacity of 2000;

• A light-filled conference center with a pre-function promenade that offers a glass wall, allowing patrons to bask in the beauty of the Northwest;

• Three new, fast-casual restaurants and a new center bar;

• 10,000 square feet of gaming space:

• A new exterior facade; and

• A cultural center that celebrates the history and journey of the Muckleshoot Tribe.

In addition to offering the Puget Sound region gaming and entertainment options, the casino revenues support an array of important programs and services for tribal members, like elder services, education, health care, housing assistance and employment opportunities.
