Saracen Casino Resort
Gaming Action Comes to Pine Bluff
Saracen Casino Resort is the third gaming establishment to be licensed in the state of Arkansas. The $350 million development is expected to open in June 2020. However, players don’t have to wait until then to enjoy slots and sports books, mouthwatering food and refreshments. The Saracen Annex Q-Store is a “sample operation,” already open across the road from the site of the main complex that is now under construction.
The main structure promises to be a distinctive landmark on 345 acres located at the intersection of Martha Mitchell Expressway and US 63/79 (east of Pines Mall). When the complex is completed, it will provide work for 1,100 permanent employees, not to mention the 1,000 construction workers who are building the facility. In addition to the integrated, 300-room hotel, the complex will feature a 80,000-square-foot gaming floor, 2,300 slot machines – including 300 machines already operating at the Saracen Annex Q-Store – plus 50 table games.
Patrons will enjoy the resort with visits to a day spa, multiple restaurants and lounges, and an entertainment venue. In addition to leisure activities, the resort will provide a conference center, child learning center and daycare facility, plus a museum and cultural center.
The Quapaw Nation has even considered the health and safety of visitors with an on-site health clinic, EMS clinic, plus satellite police and fire stations.
