ARLINGTON — The Stillaguamish Tribe's Angel of the Winds Casino will be twice the size Sunday, Dec. 28, when its $44 million expansion opens with a ribbon cutting celebration.

The general manager of the casino, Travis O’Neil said the payroll will now exceed $12,000,000 annually due to the expansion, which doubles the casino's number of full time employees to more than 600.

New additions for casino include a full service restaurant and lounge called The Watershed Restaurant & Lounge, a gift shop, more table games and a grand total of more than 1,000 slot machines.

In March, a new poker room, keno lounge and outdoor dining terrace will open. With the opening of the new addition, the original section will be closed for two months for a freshening up after four years of service. It will reopen in late February.
