Pascua Yaqui Tribe Breaks Ground for
$65 Million Casino

TUCSON, AZ - /AP/ - The Pascua Yaqui Tribe broke ground January 26 for a new casino that's intended to cater to a different clientele than does the tribe's nearby Casino of the Sun.

The $65 million new casino will include day-care facilities, an arcade and a bowling alley.

The first phase, expected to open in September 2001, will include 500 slot machines, a restaurant and a 4,200-seat amphitheater. The second phase expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2002 will include six restaurants, along with the child-care facility and arcade.

Those family-oriented features should draw "a different crowd altogether than we draw right now," said Casino of the Sun CEO Doug Lentz.

The casino has yet to be named formally but temporarily is known as Casino Del Sol. It's about 1.5 miles from the Casino of the Sun. Lentz said the new facility ultimately should employ about 980 people, compared with the 480 who are at Casino of the Sun.


Superbowl a Big Win for
Vegas Sportsbooks

By Jeff Simpson / Gaming Wire

LAS VEGAS - Nevada sports books won more money from Super Bowl bettors this year than they did on last year's game, despite a 4.8 percent decline in the total wagered on Sunday's contest.

The state's 148 sports books won slightly more than $11 million on the game, a 160 percent increase over the $4.2 million won last year, according to preliminary figures released Tuesday by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

But bettors wagered just $67.7 million on the game between the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants, which Baltimore won 34-7. That compared with the $71 million bet on last year's St. Louis Rams-Tennessee Titans game won by the Rams.

Sports books won $16.30 of every $100 wagered on this year's game, the best Super Bowl hold percentage in the past 10 years. Sports books won $6 of every $100 bet last year.
