Tulalip Resort Casino, owned by the Tulalip Tribes of Washington, has unveiled plans to renovate and expand the casino resort in order to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The renovations will cover indoor and outdoor amenities, and the estimated completion date for the project is the end of 2025, as per company officials.
Marci Fryberg, President/COO of Tulalip Gaming Organization, stated that the renovation and expansion will set a new standard for quality and excellence among casino resort properties in the Pacific Northwest. The plans include an expansion of the current 192,000-square-foot property by an additional 70,250 square feet.
At present, the casino features a 12-story luxury hotel with 360 guestrooms and high tech suites, 30,000 square feet of entertainment space, and event and meeting facilities. The gaming floor includes over 2,400 slot machines, more than 35 gaming tables with 12 poker tables, and a bingo & keno gaming area. The resort also has a partnership with DraftKings sportsbook, which reportedly pays out over $5 million in jackpots every month. Additionally, there are dining and leisure facilities such as a 14,000-square-foot spa, fitness center, pools, a Tech Center, and a marketplace.
The casino originally opened in 1992 and underwent a major expansion before reopening on June 4, 2003. Since 2009, it has been recognized as a AAA Four-Diamond resort, and has received accolades from guests and industry professionals.
The resort has been included in the Seattle Times readers’ poll to receive Gold awards in seven categories, including Best Casino, Best Casino Entertainment, Best Resort, Best Paying Slots, Best Table Games, Best Spa, and Best Sportsbook. Additionally, it has been featured in traveler guides such as the Traveler Top 100 Resorts lists and received the 2023 Travelers’ Choice® award for Top Accommodations by Tripadvisor®, ranking it among the top 10% of global properties.
The expansion and renovation of Tulalip Resort Casino are expected to elevate the property’s status as a leading destination resort and position it as a premier destination for casino and leisure seekers.
