The New Quil Ceda Creek Casino: More to Love


More than twice the size of the current property, the new Quil Ceda Creek Casino is slated to open in early 2021.

Quil Ceda Creek Casino announced significant progress on its highly anticipated, new and improved casino which is being built across the street from the existing casino. Set to open in early 2021, the new Quil Ceda Creek Casino is situated on 15 acres of Tulalip Tribal land located directly off I-5 exit 199. The casino will be more than twice the size of the current property. Totaling 126,700 square feet, it will feature a beautifully designed and greatly expanded main casino, new and enhanced food and beverage experiences, and a multi-story parking garage.

"The construction of the new Quil Ceda Creek Casino is on track and making considerable progress. We love having our guests back at our current property, but can’t wait to show them what we mean when we say there will be 'More to Love' in their gaming, dining and entertainment experience at the new Quil Ceda Creek Casino," said President and COO of Tulalip Gaming Organization, Ken Kettler.

The new Quil Ceda Creek Casino will offer guests more to love with 1,500 gaming machines (an increase of 500 machines), 16 table games (with three new tables added), an expanded entertainment lounge, three full-service bars, a full-service restaurant, a food hall with multiple cooked-to-order food venues and a state-of-the-art smoke management system.

The new six-story parking garage will include more than 1,000 parking stalls, elevators and enhanced accessibility for guests with disabilities. Additional surface parking and charging stations for electric vehicles will be conveniently located near the multiple casino entrances. The new Quil Ceda Creek Casino will have approximately 700 more parking spaces than the current location.

“We know our loyal guests have come to love and enjoy the casual, comfortable and fun environment at Quil Ceda Creek Casino. We are excited to give our guests that same friendly and familiar experience at the new property with larger, updated facilities,” said Kettler.

Construction began in early 2019 and major in-progress construction highlights include:
