ARLINGTON, WA - The Stillaguamish Indian Tribe announced a $44 million
expansion plan for their Angel of the Winds Casino near Arlington. Construction
has already begun and completion is expected by December.
The casino opened in October 2004 with 22,000 square feet. The expanded casino will be 84,000 square feet. The new gaming floor will be increased to 30,000 square feet and feature 900 class III machines and 100 class II machines. This almost doubles the current 475 class III machines and 60 class II machines.
The expansion includes a new poker room and a keno room. A full-service restaurant will replace the current deli-style pit stop.
The general manager of the casino, Travis O'Neil, said most the new gamblers will come from northern Snohomish and southern Skagit counties. "We're going to try to reach into the Seattle market, but we know that's difficult. We'll maintain our northern focus."
The tribe hopes the new expansion will increase their visitors by fifty percent. The past two years their visitors averaged 800,000 and the new hope is for 1.2 million visitors annually.
