WORLEY, Idaho (Nov. 13, 2018) – The Coeur d’Alene Casino is ending its 25th anniversary year with a bang…and hammering, painting and moving. The tribal gaming property is undergoing a massive renovation of more than 65,000 square feet of gaming and event space.

The project is due to reach completion by March 2019 and will bring a larger events stage, more seating, new high limit gaming area and more improvements.

“This project is a long time coming and although we have to deal with a little construction to get there we are extremely excited to see the final product,” said Francis SiJohn, CEO of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel. “This is going to give our guests an exciting gaming floor, better ventilation and an elevated entertainment experience.”

The casino’s event center is being upgraded with a series of high resolution digital media displays, new service bar, upgraded finishes and dramatic décor package. The stage is doubling in size allowing for larger entertainment acts and upgraded guest experience. A multi-tiered telescopic platform seating system is being installed which will provide additional seating options and new vantage points.

The original mural painted by renowned artist and member of the Spokane Tribe George Flett, is being restored and will remain in its location. The mural will also be digitized and displayed in the main gaming area near the Nighthawk Lounge.

Overall the remodel will cover 68,400 square feet of the property and is scheduled to  be completed in March 2019. In the meantime, some gaming areas have been moved to allow for construction, way-finding signs are displayed and casino staff are available to help direct guests to the temporary areas. There will also be “Coeur Zone Promotions” offered throughout the renovation.
