Desert Diamond Casino West Valley to Get Blackjack
May 19th, 2017 by Site Admin
This week it was announced that the Tohono O’odham Nation and Arizona have come to an agreement that will let the Desert Diamond Casino West Valley offer blackjack to their customers.
The agreement settles a multi-year legal battle that’s raged between the tribe and the state, and will likely give the casino an extra boost, as the site is located near major sports stadiums.
Under the terms of the deal the casino will get a Class III designation, which includes slot machines, blackjack, and poker games. The deal has to be signed off by the Trump administration but is thought to have high odds of passing.
In a statement, Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Edward Manuel said, “This is a day the Nation has long been working toward. It establishes an agreement concerning the Nation’s right to conduct Class III gaming on its West Valley land and it brings to an end the final dispute that was constraining this important project. The Nation is eager to continue with its West Valley investment to create thousands of new jobs, positive economic development, and a world-class casino resort that all of Arizona can be proud of.”
