New amenities will include 26 additional blackjack tables, a new bingo hall seating more than 600 players, four new distinctly themed restaurants, and a spectacular bar and lounge area, all of which will provide at least 400 new jobs to the Southern Arizona community. "Casino Del Sol exemplifies the best in gaming design to offer customers an overall entertainment experience; consequently, we are well located to expand our presence in Arizona," said Doug Lentz, chief executive officer of Casino Del Sol. "The loveliness of the Tuscan Village motif, exceptional structural design and astonishing desert environment of the Casino is notably lifting the level for gaming goals all across Arizona and the country." Udall Center and Native Nations Institute at University of Arizona performed a study for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe in January 2002. According to its results, the Tribe provides a financial impact of at least $90 million per year to the Southern Arizona financial system. The population involved in the survey includes mainly salespersons, freelancers hired in the building of the expansion, groceries and beverage dispensers agreements, community endowments of more than $250,000 annually to Southern Arizona organizations and at least 1,400 jobs created to run the casino once the growth is full. "It is very important that the jobs which are offered by the Del Sol Casino will be offered to the entire unemployed public" said Robert Valencia, chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. "Our goal is to offer more jobs to the public with high salaries so the economical situation of the tribe will improve the everyday life of our tribe and all Southern Arizonans. New jobs which will help the Tribe achieve this goal." Designed by Leo A Daly, Casino Del Sol will platform a extraordinary Tuscan Village shape, complete with streetscapes, a gaming piazza and traditional Mediterranean-style interior decoration with touches of deep purple, bronze and sandstone.

The Mediterranean sky peaks 46 feet above the gaming floor and is able to simulate a vibrant sunrise or sunset which can make your heart go wild... said Kristina Ennis Robinson, principal and director of Native American Gaming for Leo A Daly. "The design of the property is one of the unquiet designs I have ever seen and it gives the feeling of both an intimate and a public atmosphere at the same time. It is definitely an advantage for a place which is meant to be crowded with people most of the time. An environment where people can mingle when they choose to or can enjoy their privacy when the choose not to…" Since the signing of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe's gaming compact by Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in January, Casino Del Sol is allowed to enlarge gaming functions in order to include an additional 700 gaming devices and Vegas-style blackjack.
