Yuba County’s Enterprise Rancheria tribe broke ground in early April on their new Fire Mountain Casino. It will be located about 30 minutes north of Lincoln, near the Toyota Amphitheatre.
The casino will be a fairly modest 50,000 sq. ft. of gambling space and the tribe’s Class II license will limit them to electronic bingo and other games, while prohibiting table games and “full-fledged” slot machines.
Doug Elmets, spokesman for Thunder Valley was quoted by the Sacramento Bee as saying the new casino, “will have no effect” on their business and that it will be, “nothing more than an elaborate bingo hall.”
Cheryl Schmit who represents anti-gambling organization Stand Up for California was also quoted by the Bee, saying: “Despite the ground being broken, this is still unsettled.”
