California now features its first-ever Las Vegas-style integrated casino resort following yesterday’s opening by the federally-recognized Estom Yumeka Maidu Tribe of Enterprise Rancheria of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain.
Being run via a partnership with prominent American casino firm Hard Rock International, the new Yuba County facility boasts a 200-room hotel, six restaurants, meeting spaces and a fitness center alongside a 150,000 sq ft casino hosting a selection of 57 gaming tables as well as over 1,580 slots.
The eight-story Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain is located about 25 miles north of Sacramento and moreover features an outdoor pool and deck area, The Rock Shop-branded souvenir outlet and a coffee shop while its casino-facing The Center Bar allows patrons to enjoy a vast array of wines, spirits, cocktails and craft beers.
Jon Lucas, Chief Operating Officer for Hard Rock International, used an official press release to declare that the $440 million property has become his firm’s twelfth American gaming venue with over 70% of its staff coming from the local area. His firm is an enterprise of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and is due to celebrate this California opening by hosting a concert at the nearby Toyota Amphitheatre on Saturday featuring seminal British rock quintet Def Leppard.
