SHINGLE SPRINGS, CA - Northern California's latest Indian casino is finally open for business.
The Red Hawk Casino owned by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians officially opened to all customers Wednesday evening.
VIPs and other invited guests got the first shot at playing the slots or blackjack in the new 278,000-square-foot casino off Highway 50 during a private opening early Wednesday.
"It's going to stimulate the economy locally because everybody's going to want to stay in hotels and motels and use restaurants and shops," Red Hawk general manager Peter Fordham said. "We really believe this is a win-win for this whole area."
