|Members of the Upper Lake Rancheria band of Pomo Indians have taken the first step towards opening a $100 million casino in west Sacramento. |
The tribe have purchased an option on the 65-acre parcel across the Sacramento River from Natomas, where they plan to build the casino and a 400-room hotel.
According to Bob Roskamp, who is representing the tribe in the deal, the project would offer Class III gaming, including slot machines and a variety of card games. Roskamp said that if the project goes forward, they hope to convince officials that the casino would be an economic benefit to a depressed area of the city.
