Fourteen live roulette, baccarat and craps tables will debut at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino on Aug. 6, according to a news release from Gila River Gaming Enterprises Inc. The new games are a result of Arizona's amended gaming compact that took effect in May.

Wild Horse Pass will also unveil a new High Limit Salon that will include six midi-baccarat tables, six high-limit blackjack tables, one high-limit roulette table featuring an exclusive “chocolate chip” valued at $5,000, a private cashier cage and an Asian buffet, according to the release.


Gila River’s two additional casinos, Lone Butte in Chandler and Vee Quiva in the West Valley, will debut live roulette, baccarat and craps table games in the coming weeks, according to the release. All three properties will also increase the number of slot machines and betting limits.

“Gila River is proud to advance and elevate our entertainment offerings to our treasured guests who seek the excitement and variety of a full-fledged Las Vegas-style casino,” said Kenneth Manuel, CEO of Gila River Hotels & Casinos, in the release. “This is truly a historic moment in our 27-year history that will benefit both the Gila River Indian Community and the state by providing additional jobs and tourism as well as increased opportunities to support the community.”
