Bingo fans have a new place to play — thanks to the new 1,000-seat bingo hall built by Kitchell — at Casino Arizona at the 101 and McKellips in Scottsdale.
The 26,000 SF addition represents the reintroduction of bingo into the gaming operations of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC), which also owns and operates the Four-Diamond rated Talking Stick Resort.
Tucson-based Seaver Franks Architects designed the state-of-the-art Bingo Hall.
“The Community is pleased to offer a new venue of entertainment for our guests,” said SRPMIC Vice President Martin Harvier. “Our partners on the project have built and designed a facility that will be enjoyed by all.”
“This is an exciting day for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community,” said Kitchell’s Native American Division Vice President Brad Gabel. “We are thrilled to have played a role in bringing this facility to life, a great entertainment addition to the area. Good luck to all the bingo players out there!”
