Nisqually Red Wind Casino is celebrating its 20th
anniversary. A facility that started out as a bingo hall, Red Wind has grown to 95,000 sq. ft. of casino space with 1,500 slot machines, four restaurants, a sports pub, a bar, a gift shop and a 1,000-space parking garage.
Since opening its doors in 1997, Red Wind Casino has become an integral part of the surrounding communities. “The economic benefits and employment opportunities of Nisqually Red Wind Casino ripple throughout this region. We can be proud of the casino’s many positive impacts,” said Farron McCloud, chair of the Nisqually Tribal Council.
Gaming revenues are used to fund a broad base of support services for tribal members and provide operational funding for many area non-profit agencies and organizations. In the past five years alone, charitable funding awarded by the Nisqually Indian Tribe Charitable and Local Government Program totaled an estimated $5 million.
Multiple awards in recent years reflect the casino’s commitment to providing a top-quality experience, with plans well underway for a casino expansion and addition of a hotel.
Nisqually Red Wind Casino is located 15 minutes east of Olympia and is owned by the Nisqually Indian Tribe of southern Washington. For more information, visit redwindcasino.com
