Last week Eagle Mountain Casino released this timelapse video showing the construction progress between May 2021 and June 2022. Construction of the new Eagle Mountain Casino near the Porterville Municipal Airport has entered the final stages towards completion this fall. The photo below is the new Eagle Mountain Casino taken June 6, 2022. Eagle Mountain has over 100 new job openings available. The jobs will be listed on the Eagle Mountain Casino website beginning September 12.
The beam had been signed by everyone involved in the project, and a small tree was placed on top of the steel beam as a good luck tradition for the building. Eagle Mountain Casino appears to be on-schedule to move into its new building in Porterville by the first week of December. Finishing work continues on the interior of the casino.
Still, there’s no getting around the fact that for all the industry’s effort to push the polite word “gaming,” it is, after all, gambling. Anderson took the casino bus early one chawton casino Friday morning to play the slots at Eagle Mountain Casino. Get your bib and other event goodies before the big day.

Previous approvals have been issued by the county and city governments. The Interior Department now has until October 2 to complete the transfer of the relocation site into federal trust. Construction of the new Eagle Mountain Casino will continue for another twelve months with the grand opening in Fall 2022. The casino will have 105,000 square feet with 1750 slots, 20 table games and a choice of dining options. A 2,000-seat event center and a 250-room hotel will also be added.
Current casino employees would be given the option of transferring to the new casino. That land transfer into trust leaves only the negotiation of a gaming compact between the governor and the tribe before construction can start. Construction of the new Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville is proceeding on schedule since the groundbreaking last April. The concrete pour of the event center is completed along with some preliminary steel framing.
Partial support was provided by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. The northeast corner of the parking lot was nearly empty, the stores in that portion of the strip mall either vacant or not yet open for business. But here and there, cars were parked, their drivers waiting patiently for the casino bus.
