A new expansion for the Fort Randall Casino is in the works. The Yankton Sioux tribe is hoping to make the $10 million project a resort for families. The plan is to bring Vegas style gaming to the casino, but also be family friendly. A place where visitors can be closer to home. Gaming and entertainment aimed toward adult fun. A swimming pool and a day care center will be added for the children to have fun.

Currently the casino has a 68,000 square foot gaming floor. It operates 250 gaming machines, 3 poker tables, and 6 tables for blackjack. There is also a 125 seat bingo hall. 58 guest rooms are in the 3 story hotel. The Fort Randall Casino employs 300 people.

The expansion will take an estimated 5 years to complete. The first phase of the project is scheduled to be finished May 2011. This will include an addition of 31,000 square feet to the gaming floor. A new ventilation system will be added to help eliminate smoke. Upgrades the poker and blackjack gaming areas are planned. New slots will also be added.

In the expansion's second phase, a new convention center and bingo hall with a stage will offer 500 seats. A 100 room hotel that is 7 stories will be built at this time and a swimming pool will be added. A fitness center will also be built that will offer memberships and be open to the public.

The final stage of the casino's new expansion will include new entertainment areas and a new restaurant.

The Yankton Sioux Tribe is hopeful that the additions to the casino will help bring more visitors. If so, this will help to generate more jobs for people. It will also help them recover from losses caused by the June floods.
