S&K Gaming Announces 2015 Projects

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes in Montana announced in 2015 their solely owned S&K Gaming will replace the Gray Wolf Peak Casino in Missoula with a $27.4 million casino and hotel in Evaro, creating 140 new jobs. S&K also will commence a $4.6 million renovation at KwaTaqNuk Resort in Polson.

S&K Gaming, solely owned by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, announced in 2015 it will build a .4 million, 40,000 square foot casino and 70-room hotel in Evaro, Montana to replace the Gray Wolf Peak Casino in Missoula. The casino will offer more than 350 slot machines, more than triple the current number. The project also will include a new restaurant and lounge, spa, RV park, convenience store and Eagle Bank outlet. Tribal officials said the facility will create more than 140 new jobs, according to the tribes.

CSKT spokesman Rob McDonald said McDonald said the present casino was always intended to be a temporary structure. “Three feasibility studies have supported expansion at Gray Wolf to capture millions in untapped revenue. In Montana-run casinos, bets are limited to $2 and payouts capped at $800. With this expansion, western Montana will receive better access to high quality gaming entertainment with payouts that regularly reach higher than $500,000,” he said.

S&K Gaming also announced a $4.6 million renovation at KwaTaqNuk Resort in Polson also is planned for 2015, including renovated hotel rooms and an expanded outdoor patio and bar.

Besides S&K Gaming, CSKT owns and operates S&K Electronics, S&K Technologies and Eagle Bank.
