US.- Wilton Rancheria tribe has announced a name and rough opening date for its casino resort in Elk Grove, California. It aims to open Sky River Casino in the second half of 2022.

The Wilton Rancheria tribe celebrated the news with a march on Promenade Parkway.

The casino resort, which will be developed by Boyd Gaming, will involve an investment of US$400m and is expected to generate 1,500 jobs over the length of construction, and another 2,000 once the resort is open.

The casino will be constructed in Elk Grove’s abandoned “ghost mall” property of Grant Line Road.

Las Vegas gaming firm Boyd Gaming Corp purchased the 64-acre site for an undisclosed amount. An undisclosed third party is providing financing for the project.

The casino will boast up to 2,000 slot machines and more than 80 table games on the gaming floor. The project also includes a hotel, spa, restaurants and a convention centre.

Boyd Gaming president Keith Smith said the new resort “will become one of the most popular, profitable casinos in the state,” and would provide “jobs not only for the tribe but for the entire Elk Grove community”.

Former California Governor Jerry Brown and Governor Gavin Newsom congratulated the tribe video. Brown signed the gaming compact with the tribe in 2017, giving the green light to build the casino.
