Things that went “out with the old year” include the possible early opening of SanTan Mountain Casino. The anticipated opening of the $150 million Arizona casino has been rescheduled for the late spring or early summer of 2023.

Construction is taking longer than was initially expected when the casino broke ground in October 2021, according to the SanTan Sun News.

Daniela Vizcarra, public relations manager for Gila River Resorts and Casinos, told PlayInAZ that plans for what will eventually emerge in the San Tan Valley have gone essentially unaltered.
