Gila River Hotels & Casinos has broken ground on its new $150m Santan Mountain casino in Arizona, the US.

Located on the southeast corner of Gilbert Road and Hunt Highway, the new entertainment and gaming venue will be Gila River's fourth casino in the state.

Wild Horse Pass and Lone Butte, both located near Chandler, and Vee Quiva in the West Valley are the other three casinos of the gaming enterprise in Arizona.

The new 160-acre project will have more than 850 slots and table games including mini baccarat, craps and roulette.

It will also include a BetMGM Sportsbook and several dining options for guests.

The sportsbook will feature seating arrangement, multiple large-screen TVs to enable guests bet on live games.

In the future, a new hotel may be added as well, reported azbigmedia.

Architectural and interior design firm Steelman Partners and The PENTA Building Group are appointed to design and construct the Santan Mountain casino.

Steelman Partners officials stated: “The comfort of Gila River’s guests is a top priority. Whether a guest is playing the slots during the day or playing at a high-energy, live table at night, Santan Mountain design elements will provide a striking, serene backdrop for memorable entertainment.”

The project is expected to create 650 new jobs. The construction works are expected to be completed in 18 to 24 months.

Later this year, Gila River is also planning to open a $143m expansion project at Wild Horse Pass.

This will add 205 guest rooms, two pools, new meeting space, a rooftop restaurant as well as lounge to the Chandler property.
