A rewarding jackpot could come sooner than expected. Much to the delight of many casino goers, the newest game in town, Sky River Casino, just opened for business.

The new casino is a gambler’s paradise with more than 2,000 slot machines, 80 table games, high-limit gaming and over a dozen food and drink venues that are designed to please foodies and casual diners alike. One of the dining partners is well-known in the Bay Area for its mouth-watering Asian cuisine.

The current food lineup includes SR Prime Steakhouse, 32 Brews Street (appetizers), Dragon Beaux (dim sum) and the Market at Sky River, which will feature several restaurants in one that are centrally located in a dining area. Guests will be able to order from their phones for quicker service. Some of the options include Aurelia Taqueria, Butchers Burger, CA99 Hot Chicken, Chickie and Tony’s pizza, FUKURO By KRU, Global Eats, Indulge, Koi Palace Express, Ocean, Roli Roti, Sky River Java and Upper Barrel wine bar.

Elk Grove residents and commuters along Highway 99 have noticed the gradual construction process of the new casino project, which broke ground early last year. Along with the thrill and entertainment factor of a new regional casino, the new venue will also inject new economic life into Elk Grove and create nearly 1,500 jobs.

The casino operator is experienced in the gaming industry and will deliver visitors a unique gaming experience through cutting-edge technology, innovation and an exclusive loyalty programming. At 100,000 square feet, the casino will boast plenty of floor space for everyone’s favorite games.

Boyd Gaming is the operator of the new facility, which is led by the Wilton Rancheria Tribe. The new casino provides a greater pathway toward tribal self-sufficiency and community-wide benefits. The tribe members are descendants of the Miwok-speaking native tribes. Wilton Rancheria is indigenous to the Sacramento region and has more than 700 members, most of whom reside in Sacramento County.

Just 15 miles south of downtown Sacramento, Sky River Casino is the gateway to casino gaming for Northern California. It is the nearest casino to the south and east Bay Area.

Looking ahead, the casino will be more than just a gaming destination. Sky River Casino hopes to build an entertainment hub, as well, that invites all visitors to have a great time.

Elk Grove continues to add great entertainment options. This is yet another reason why we love the area! If you are interested in Elk Grove real estate, contact us today!
