Construction on the $23.5 million casino project began in January 2006, according to Don Bellamy, the casino’s chief operating officer. Bellamy said JP Morgan Chase financed the casino, with the Yavapai-Apache Nation of Arizona acting as guarantor. UIC of Anchorage, Alaska was the general contractor, and the project used local subcontractors.

The La Posta Casino will be a 24-hour operation on weekends. From Monday to Friday, it will close at 2 a.m. and open at 8 a.m.

The casino is on Crestwood Road, north of Interstate 8, in the vicinity of the Campo tribe’s Golden Acorn Casino.
