Lauded as the first Vegas-style gaming establishment in the greater Phoenix area, The Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino is a major contributor to the economic development of the region and the Gila River Indian Community. The property comprises over 400,000 square feet of luxury entertainment and hospitality, including a casino with 1,300 machines, 71 table games and a separate poker room.

JCJ worked closely with the Gila River Indian Community to design and deliver a unique destination that would represent the Tribe and complement the natural setting. The patron experience and operational efficiency were prime considerations in the development of a plan that offers gaming on multiple levels. The facility is complimented by indigenous plantings with water features and innovative landscaping. 

A multi-purpose theater/nightclub was carefully designed to maximize the potential of each square foot. The innovative space was designed to seat more than 1,300 guests for shows and events and to be quickly transformed into a dynamic night-club without sacrificing the functionality or aesthetics of either environment.

Market-responsive food and beverage experiences are anchored by Shula’s Steakhouse and Ling & Louie’s Asian fusion cuisine. Four lounge and bar options offer a wide variety of choices for patrons, as well as the statement Center Bar at the heart of the gaming floor.  Additional amenities include a grand ballroom, conference meeting rooms and retail shopping.
