ELK GROVE, CA – With construction nearing completion and hiring underway, Sky River Casino will open its doors to the public in early September 2022.
Located 15 miles south of downtown Sacramento, Sky River will be the closest casino to Sacramento and the South and East Bay areas. In addition to a 100,000 sq. ft. casino featuring 2,000 slot machines and 80 table games, Sky River will feature “The Market at Sky River” – a unique food and beverage marketplace with 12 different food and beverage venues, including culinary offerings from prominent local and regional restaurateurs. Boyd Gaming will operate the facility under a management agreement with the Wilton Rancheria Tribe.
“Sky River Casino is an entertainment destination that will include a wide array of dining experiences that are sure to excite foodies throughout the area,” said Chris Gibase, President and Chief Operating Officer for Sky River Casino. “The property features cutting-edge technology that allows for an innovative approach to our loyalty program, Sky River Rewards, designed to create a memorable experience for our guests. We are excited to open the doors of this wonderful facility for the Wilton Rancheria Tribe.”
“Our people have fought for decades to achieve self-sufficiency,” said Wilton Rancheria Tribal Chairman Jesus Tarango. “We fought for tribal recognition, for our land and for this historic project. We are privileged to partner with Boyd Gaming and look forward to the opening of Sky River, which will bring jobs and long-term benefits to our tribe, our community, and the region.”
