The long-awaited Desert Diamond West Valley Casino that will include table games, as well as slot machines, broke ground on Friday.
The 75,000-square-foot casino near Glendale will greatly expand the Tohono O’odham Nation’s casino floor and include five restaurants.
The $400 million project is expected to take about two years to complete. The tribe’s current casino, near Loop 101 and Northern Avenue, will remain open during that time.
