The all new Quil Ceda Creek Casino held its grand opening recently following a Tulalip Tribes’ ceremony blessing, introducing the public to the next major gaming, dining and entertainment destination in the Northwest.
The highly anticipated new casino spans 126,000 sq. ft. – more than twice the size of the current property across the street. It features a beautifully designed and greatly expanded main casino, a new Food Hall and additional dining options, an innovative entertainment venue and a six-story parking garage. The new Quil Ceda Creek Casino is situated on 15 acres of Tulalip Tribal land located directly off I-5 at exit 199.
The new Quil Ceda Creek Casino features:
– 1,500 gaming machines (an increase of 500 machines) and 16 table games (with three new tables and new games added)
– “The Kitchen” – an exciting new Food Hall experience with venues serving a variety of made-to-order dishes 24/7
– “The Landing” – classic favorites on the menu for full-service, a la carte dining
– “The Stage” – expanded entertainment offerings including live music, sports viewing on massive state-of-the art video walls, and other events
– A 1,000 stall, six-story parking structure (with 700 more spaces than the current casino), additional surface parking, and charging stations for electric vehicles.
The casino’s kitchens will be the first in the region to fully incorporate energy-saving windspeed and induction cooking technologies. Menu items will spotlight fresh, local ingredients from Northwest suppliers prepared with the latest “green cooking” techniques.
The new Quil Ceda Creek Casino is open 24/7, and is a no smoking and vaping property, providing designated smoking areas for guests’ convenience.
“We can’t wait to show guests what we mean when we say there will be ‘More to Love’ in their gaming, dining and entertainment experience,” said Belinda Hegnes, Interim Executive VP of Quil Ceda Creek Casino. “We’ll continue to provide the friendly, casual guest experience we’re known for, but now in a larger facility with more room to enjoy all that we offer.”
The new casino continues to safeguard the health and safety of guests and team members with multiple programs: limited capacity, guests and team members are required to wear properly fitting masks, no-touch temperature checks performed upon entry, social distancing, aggressive deep cleaning procedures, and entertainment areas closed based on COVID-19 guidelines.
