Morongo Casino Resort & Spa is expanding its gaming floor and creating over 400 jobs.
The 65,000-square-foot expansion will add 800 slot machines, a new bar and lounge areas, and a dedicated nonsmoking space to the casino floor.
The Morongo Band of Mission Indians say the expansion will create 425 new full-time jobs, adding to the 2,500 jobs already provided by the casino.
Simon Farmer is the Executive Director of Marketing for the casino. He says the expansion will add to the $3 billion in regional economic activity that the casino already generates.
Farmer: “So the more opportunity that we can create for the region, the more economic growth and development that we can all create and help spur, the better it works for everybody.”
The Morongo Band of Mission Indians plans to have the expansion completed by the end of the year.
