Poarch Creeks to build 'first-class' $246 million hotel, casino in Wetumpka, 12 July 2012 [cached]
Jay Dorris, president and chief executive officer of PCI Gaming, said a portion of the facilities including the gambling area and restaurants on the ground floor would be completed by October 2013.
"In these economic times, this is something we are really happy about," Dorris said.
The resort is expected to include about 285 rooms and suites, a fine-dining restaurant, a grill, a coffee shop, a snack bar and a buffet with seating overlooking the river, Dorris said. Other amenities include "a resort pool, and entertainment rooms suitable for large parties and corporate events."
The casino will include a 90,000-square- foot gaming floor with more than 2,500 electronic gambling machines. The casino currently has more than 900 machines.
Dorris said the facility would be similar to the Wind Creek Casino and Hotel in Atmore, which has received four out of five diamonds in the rating system from the American Automobile Association.
Dorris hopes the Wetumpka location can be five diamonds.
"This facility will be first-class," he said.
The hotel in Atmore includes a spa and an amphitheater.
Dorris said the plans for Wetumpka do not include a spa, although that remains a possibility in the future. There are also no current plans for a theater, although that also remains a possibility, according to tribal officials.
Dorris said they have established a line of credit to pay for the construction, which he said would be funded with tribal money.
Dorris said the three Poarch Creek facilities in the state - in Wetumpka - Montgomery and Atmore, have obviously benefitted from some non-tribal facilities in the state closing.
Dorris said, like Atmore, they expect people from all over the region to come to the Wetumpka location. He said they know, from information they have from a customer database, that some Montgomery and Birmingham residents are stopping at Atmore instead of going to the casinos in Biloxi, Miss.
"They will have no reason to go to Biloxi," Dorris said.
Dorris said Wednesday that they are not concerned about efforts to stop electronic gambling in the state and that they would not make that investment if they were.
Tribal officials and managers for PCI Gaming, the gaming authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, announced the major expansion Wednesday morning on the fifth floor of the current parking deck at the casino.
Dorris said the current parking deck has spaces for about 500 vehicles and would be expanded to a deck with 2,500 parking spots. He said they pay taxes on that facility.

On Fridays and Saturdays, they're so busy that would-be patrons must wait in line outside, entering only as others leave, according to Poarch Creek Indian Gaming President Jay Dorris.
PCI Gaming's third venue, Wind Creek Casino & Hotel in Atmore, also is enjoying a boost, although Dorris said that the increase isn't as dramatic as at the Montgomery-area casinos.
Dorris linked the gains to actions by Gov. Bob Riley's Task Force on Illegal Gambling to close state-regulated casinos in Alabama. PCI Gaming is under the oversight of the federal government rather than the state.
"The business is up since the other properties have had to close their doors," Dorris said, adding, however, "that's not the way we want to grow."
Dorris said that recent renovations at PCI Gaming's Montgomery-area casinos included more gambling machines, a new wing to house them, new carpet and restrooms, and upgraded dining areas. The work wasn't done in expectation of state raids steering patrons their way, he said. Instead, he said, "We were looking to be able to better compete."

"We've had good success with our gaming operations and we were looking for other opportunities," said PCI's CEO Jay Dorris.
Dorris said the flat track is still planned and predicts PCI and the quarter horse association will eventually work together. He said PCI will continue to operate barrel racing and add another 20 jobs, regardless of Tuesday's referendum.
