The Cowlitz Indian Tribe has decided to open a casino in Washington. It will be called Ilani Resort Casino.
This new gambling facility will cost around 500 million dollars. To build it, the tribe cooperates with the Connecticutís Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (MTGA).
Tanna Engdahl, an official of the Cowlitz Tribe, said that the casino title had a world ìIlaniî, which meant ìsingingî in the local language. According to Tanna Engdahl, members of the tribe always enjoy singing and think that this can be very powerful in solving different problems.
The gambling establishment will open its doors in 2017. It will occupy an area of 100,000 square feet. It will offer 2,500 slot machines, 75 tables for different games, 60 high-limit slots, and five VIP tables. The gambling house will also provide guests with restaurants and conference rooms.
The project will be financially supported mainly by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority.
The design of the gambling house is developed by the Friedmutter Group.
Ilani Resort Casino is supposed to be located near Portland. So, it will be able to attract customers from among residents of this city.
We hope that the Cowlitz Indian Tribe will succeed in its intention to provide high-quality gambling services at its first Ilani Resort Casino.
