Address: CA-99, Elk Grove, CA, USA
The National Indian Gaming Commission has approved construction of the casino and demolition on 36 acres of Tribal Land in Elk Grove will pave way for the next phase of the project including groundbreaking.
The Wilton Rancheria Resort & Casino Project is a proposed casino development off Highway 99 in Elk Grove in Sacramento County planned for a portion of the site of an outlet mall/The Outlet Collection at Elk Grove. The build, which reportedly includes a casino, 302-room and suite hotel and convention center and more, is expected to cost the tribe and partner Boyd Gaming $400 million.
On October 3, 2017, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill ratifying a compact between the state of California and the Wilton Rancheria allowing 2,500 slot machines. In the most recent decision, in early March 2018, a judge dismissed a challenge by casino opponents, including “Stand Up for California” and local cardroom owners, to a federal decision that placed 35.9 acres into a trust for the tribe in Jan. 2017.
The tribe’s compact with the state of California allows for up to 2,500 slot machines.
