Tucson’s Fifth Casino Receives Approval From Town Council

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe and the city of Tucson reached an agreement on Tuesday supporting a new casino in the city. This would be the first Pascua Yaqui owned and operated casino within Tucson and the city’s fifth casino. The location will be at the site of the former Century Theater (and former drive-in theater) off of Grant Road a few miles north of downtown. This 14.3 acres of land was purchased by the Tribe in 2011 for $4.65 million.
