Construction of Snoqualmie Casino Expansion Begins

Snoqualmie Casino Expansion Project

  • Construction has started on the $400 million expansion at the Snoqualmie Casino near Seattle.
  • The project is expected to be completed in the 4th quarter of 2024.
  • Snoqualmie Casino was the first casino to put up a sportsbook and offer legal sports betting in Washington State.

The Snoqualmie Casino near Seattle recently announced that construction has started on its $400 million expansion project.

Per Snoqualmie Tribe Chairman Robert de Los Angeles:

“Through the hard work and resilience of our Elders, the Snoqualmie Tribe regained its recognition in 1999. With our sovereignty recognized, we have continued to strengthen and preserve our cultural traditions, protecting our sacred places, healing our ancestral lands, and establishing enterprises that allow our Tribe to provide our families with education, health care, and housing while also giving back to the community. This next period of growth at the Snoqualmie Casino allows us to continue advancing those goals.”

Multi-Phase Expansion

Phase 1 of the multi-phase expansion will be supervised by the international construction consultancy organization Cunning Group. The first phase includes the construction of the casino’s valet entrance, associated buildings, and parking facilities. These improvements are to provide enough space for the close to 1.2 million square foot renovation and expansion, which is expected to be completed in Q4 2024.

The rest of the project will include the construction of a full-service spa, a fitness center, an indoor pool with an outdoor deck, a 2,000-seat entertainment and convention center, new onsite parking, two new restaurants, and the addition of 11,000 square feet of gaming area. From construction through completion, the expansion is expected to bring 500 new job opportunities to the region.
