Though the operations at Caesars’ Harrah’s Northern California casino kicked off earlier towards the end of April, it had reserved an opening ceremony for later.
Hundreds of gambling enthusiasts and visitors attended the opening ceremony of the casino. A custom-designed Intel drone light show was the show stealer at the inaugural function. The 300 Intel® Shooting Star ™ drones, used for the lighting, are capable of creating more than four billion color combinations to light up the sky.
Buena Vista Rancheria Chairwoman Rhonda Pope-Flores, “This weekend was as much a celebration of opening as it was a ‘thank you’ to the local community and our guests who have been so supportive of the development. The Buena Vista Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians have a long history of hospitality, and this weekend was just the start of many celebrations we plan to bring to the community.”
The casino has over 950 slot machines and 20 table games along with other amenities including Louie Oliver’s Restaurant & Bar which features an array of local fare and fresh, farm-to-fork selections.
Caesars’ Harrah’s Northern California casino has created over 400 full-time jobs apart from those involved in the construction and development of the property. According to the operators, most of the positions are already full. The company has said that at least 80 percent of the workforce employed at the venue are locals.
