Rochester - Lucky Eagle Casino & Hotel opened a dramatic 16,000 square foot expansion to its gaming floor on Dec. 30, in time to celebrate New Year's Eve.
Casino visitors were greeted by hundreds of slot machines in the new gaming area, part of a major expansion project that began in February 2015 and is being rolled out in phases. When phase one of the casino expansion is completed in January, visitors will enjoy a new sports bar & grill, increased meeting and entertainment space, and a new player's club lounge.
"We're thrilled to open the new gaming floor," said John Setterstrom, chief executive officer of Lucky Eagle Casino & Hotel. "The digital column signage is spectacular, and our guests will enjoy the new variety of slots, including those from our new vendor, Rocket Gaming. When all phases of the expansion are complete in June, we will offer an entertainment experience unparalleled in the Pacific Northwest."
The CraftHouse Sports Bar opens in mid-January, with a wide assortment of food and drink offerings, multiple big screens, and a live entertainment venue. The bar's decor pays homage to Washington's teams and venues.
"The expanded gaming floor and all of the new amenities will position our facility for 2016 and beyond," said Chehalis Tribal Chairman Don Secena.
"This expansion will provide a positive economic impact for the Chehalis Tribe and all of the surrounding communities. This is an exciting time for Lucky Eagle Casino & Hotel."
