The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has been granted an operating licence following its acquisition of the Las Vegas venue in May.
In May, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians announced its acquisition of the Palms Casino. The tribe agreed to pay Red Rock Resorts, $650m.
Scheduled to open in the spring of 2022, the resort will create more than 1,000 jobs. Palms includes over 700 hotel rooms and suites, numerous casual and upscale dining options, meeting and convention space, a theatre with seating for 2,500 guests, a pool and spa, and Palms Place condominiums.
SMGHA Chairwoman Latisha Casas said: “We are grateful for this opportunity to share our long-standing tradition of hospitality with Las Vegas and execute our vision for this iconic resort, starting by welcoming back former and current Palms employees. Together, we will create history.”
Laurens Vosloo, a SMGHA anagement committee member, added: “We would like to extend a sincere ‘thank-you’ to Red Rock Resorts and its leadership team. We deeply appreciate the support and ongoing partnership they provided as we worked through the transition of ownership.”
The Tribe has partnered with local sports teams through sponsorships with the Las Vegas Raiders, Allegiant Stadium, and the Vegas Golden Knights.
