US.- Soboba Casino Resort is once again in business as the new facility officially opened its doors on Wednesday. The new casino is located in San Jacinto, just a mile away from its previous location.

The new 209-acre resort features a 15,000 square foot event centre and a 200-room hotel. Facility executives believe that the casino will also boost activity in the area: it has already made an impact in the local economy as it doubled the workforce to 1,500 employees.

Isaiah Vivanco, Vice Chairman for the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians said that they are offering a unique experience. “We have a golf course associated with the resort. So we have the whole resort atmosphere,” he said and added: “We’re hoping this becomes the economic engine for the valley. There’s not a whole lot other than our venture. There’s a lot of recreation out here. We hope to capitalize on all of that.”

Moreover, assistant GM Jason Cozart explained that this casino will not only benefit the tribe but also the community, the employees and the region as a whole.
