Will A New Casino Near Fresno Change Indian Gaming In The Valley? Gaming tribes in the San Joaquin Valley are working different angles to seek your betting dollar.no deposit bonus Several projects are on the drawing board between Kern and Madera counties. There are expansions and new casinos. The first new gaming facility that will likely open is Table Mountain’s proposed casino, hotel and resort near Friant. But with other proposals pending, when will there be too much gaming? Or is the Valley approaching oversaturation already? Last month, Table Mountain Rancheria announced plans for a new casino, resort and hotel. It’s been years in the works. The tribe has one of the oldest casinos in the state. There will be a new events facility, bingo hall, new gaming machines and a 151-room hotel and resort.That suits regular visitors like Desiree Uzzell. She prefers Table Mountain over other local Indian gaming establishments. She started going 31 years ago, when it opened, and plays Bingo and slots. The old casino will be renovated as tribal government offices. “It’s a fun place to go, it’s close, it’s clean, you tend to win and they do have Bingo,” Uzzell says. Of course, she has her favorites: “There is one machine we do particularly enjoy and it’s called Hearts Locked, you have to lock the hearts when you get into the bonus round and every time you lock a heart the bonus amount goes up.” Uzzell already enjoys the food and is encouraged to know there will be a better ventilation system, an issue the tribe is anxious to address. Table Mountain tribal lawyer Daniel Casas says the tribe wants to improve the experience for customers.“We wanted more floor space, to have people to be able to move around without having to bump into machines and other individuals, so it’s better for the patron, second we wanted to have a higher ceiling for better ventilation,” Casas says. The new project is estimated to cost up to $300 million. It will be self-financed, Casas says. Traffic is expected to double and the tribe is paying a percentage of more than a dozen road and intersection improvements, some as distant as the northern fringes of Fresno and Clovis. These projects will cost $10 million or more, Casas says.
