Table Mountain’s brand new casino is about to open. Video offers a bird’s eye view – GV Wire
The new Table Mountain Resort and Casino in Friant, under construction since 2019, is about to open.
While tribal leaders have remained tight-lipped on an official date, a promotional video shared on social media last month by the company confirms that the casino will open in July.
“35 years have passed, but the same spirit remains,” the video announces. “Table Mountain Casino Resort continues in July 2022.”
The casino is looking to staff a new, larger complex
The casino has been busy recruiting staff, holding nine job fairs since early May. Dozens of vacancies are listed on the Table Mountain website, ranging from cashier and food service jobs to facility maintenance and security.
As the new building prepares to open, the casino will host two more job fairs this week at the Fresno Fairgrounds.
In 2018, officials estimated that the new facilities would create a thousand jobs, increasing employment at Table Mountain Casino to nearly 1,454 positions.
What new features will the new casino offer?
Plans for the new facility included a 110,000 square foot casino slated to add over 600 gaming machines, expanded dining space, a 1,500-seat special events center, gift shop, and daycare.
An expanded car park has also been promised, with an additional 1,000 spaces provided on top of the casino’s existing 5-storey garage.
The new resort features a radical modern design, featuring a glass-fronted hotel tower with 14 levels and 150 rooms.
In total, the new building was designed to offer 600,000 square feet of total space compared to the current 72,000 square foot casino.
What is the next step for the current casino building?
The current casino should be repurposed for tribal government purposes. Table Mountain Rancheria Casino is operated by the Monache Tribe and Chukchansi Band of Yokuts.
