WETUMPKA - Alabama's Poarch Band of Creek Indians announced plans today to construct a new deluxe casino resort on their Creek Casino property in Wetumpka. The grand opening is tentatively May 2013.
The $246 million resort will include a 90,000 square-foot gaming floor with 2,500 slot machines and a 20-story hotel tower with 285 luxury rooms and suites overlooking the Coosa River. The location is 9 miles northeast of Montgomery on Highway 231.
The announcement of this project was made in this press release:
"WETUMPKA, Ala., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Plans were unveiled today to turn Wetumpka's Creek Casino into a deluxe resort that will attract tourists from around the country to the picturesque river town outside of Montgomery.
PCI Gaming Authority (PCIGA), the gaming enterprise owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, announced the project at a press conference on the building site today where construction has already begun on Wind Creek Wetumpka. It is slated to open in May of next year.
"We have set very high standards for our Wind Creek Casino and Hotel brand," noted Jay Dorris, President of PCIGA. "This is one of the most beautiful settings imaginable for this kind of first-class resort, and we want it to offer the same kind of quality experience that people have come to expect from Wind Creek in Atmore, which is one of the few hotels in our state with a Four Diamond rating."
The new resort will include a 20-story hotel tower with 285 luxuriously-appointed rooms and suites, all of which will overlook the Coosa River. The property will feature a 90,000 square foot gaming floor with more than 2,500 electronic gaming machines, a resort pool, and entertainment rooms suitable for large parties and corporate events.
Wind Creek Wetumpka will also feature a number of dining choices including a grill, a coffee shop, a snack bar, a fine dining restaurant, and a buffet that overlooks the Coosa River.
Like its predecessor, Wind Creek Casino and Hotel in Atmore, the property is expected to be an economic engine in the surrounding area. It is estimated that 1,200 workers will be hired over the course of construction. Currently, Wetumpka's Creek Casino employs 400 full-time employees with benefits. Once completed, the new resort will generate another 600 jobs with benefits bringing the total to 1,000 full-time employees.
