Lower Brule Sioux Tribe Proposing $34 Million Casino

Casino (File)OACOMA – The Lower Brule Sioux tribe is pursuing a $34 million casino along Interstate 90 just west of the southeastern South Dakota town of Oacoma.

Rapid City developer Richard Rangel told a crowd at the Oacoma Community Center on Tuesday night that the project is envisioned in two phases – a casino and travel plaza, followed by an events center, hotel and water park. He says the tribe has secured a loan for the first phase.

The tribe needs state and federal approval.

The Daily Republic reports (http://bit.ly/11pr533) that if the project moves forward, the tribe will move all of its gambling operations to the new casino. The tribe owns and operates the Golden Buffalo Casino on its reservation. The new casino would be on land it controls off the reservation.
