Flandreau Santee Sioux proposes casino near Sioux Falls

April 12, 2010

SIOUX FALLS, SD The Flandreau Santee Sioux tribe is working with a group of Sioux Falls business leaders on a plan to build a resort casino in or near Sioux Falls.

The casino would compete with a proposed casino just across the Iowa border in Lyon County. Studies show the Lyon County casino will pull millions of dollars each year out of the South Dakota economy.

The plan would be a $110 million project to compete with the Lyon County plan. It would include 900 slot machines, 24 table games and 8 poker tables. In additiona there would be an 18-hole golf course, two restaurants and a 1,200-seat event center.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux tribe is willing to negotiate profit-sharing agreements with the city and the state, similar to those paid by Deadwood casinos.

However, there are several major hurdles facing the plan. It requires the tribe to buy off-reservation land within commuting distance of the reservation and seek federal approval to place that land into trust. It also requires approval by the governor.
