Owned and operated by the Chicken Ranch Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians, the casino first opened in 1985. There are currently 40 tribal members, and of those, 20 are voting members, meaning they are over the age of 18. Clarke Broadcasting met with Lloyd Mathiesen, who was recently re-elected to new three year term as Tribal Chairman, to hear about current and long-term plans.
As part of an expansion of gaming, 247 machines are being added, and nine tables. It is in addition to the existing 360-plus machines. The casino is often running at a capacity of around ninety to ninety-five percent, so Mathiesen says they will be a welcomed addition. He anticipates the renovation to be finished around May 1st.
To help with traffic flow in and out of the casino, the tribe continues to work with Caltrans to plan for a roundabout on Highway 108. Construction is tentatively planned for Spring of 2020.
