The Desert Diamond Casino West Valley opening was a full house, literally and figuratively.

The Las Vegas-style casino was literally a full house, as the crowd on opening night filled the sprawling casino on the Feb. 19 opening night. 

“We apologize for the inconvenience, however, we’ve reached the maximum allowed capacity for the evening and can no longer allow any more vehicles,”  the casino tweeted, less than three hours after opening.

The full house was also symbolic, as the casino has poker tables as well as blackjack. Additionally, 1,100 slot machines were brought over from the temporary casino, which the Tohono O’odham Nation opened at the end of 2015.

The Nation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony hours before opening.
