Angel of the Winds Casino opens new addition Dec. 28
November 24, 2008
ARLINGTON, WA – The Angel of the Winds Casino will soon triple its size when the
$44 million expansion project is completed in late December. The number of slot
machines will increase from 535 to 1,000 and gaming tables will increase from 12
"We've set December 28 for our grand opening of the new area, including our new
restaurant and lounge," said Travis O'Neil, the casino's general manager. "Then
in January we'll close the old area for one to two months for a freshen-up and
renovation. There won't be any poker or Keno then until we have a really big
grand opening for the whole facility in March."
"We've listened to our guests, and our expansion will provide them with the new
services and amenities they requested," O'Neil said. "New features will include
a 150-seat full-service restaurant, a larger gift shop, a lounge with live
entertainment, and more slots and tables, plus a separate eight-table poker room
and a keno room."
"The Tulalip and Skagit casinos each have their own niche, and so do we," said
O'Neil. "We call ourselves ‘the friendliest casino,' and the people we hire
support that. People really enjoy coming here for that friendliness and, of
course, a lot of winning. We also have low-priced meals, plenty of parking and a
variety of gaming options. The success of the casino, and our expansion plans,
depends on the executive team, of course, but very much on the people we hire."
