Saracen Casino Resort is set to open the summer of 2020.
The Annex features 300 popular, state-of-the-art slot machines, which have already paid several jackpots, including one in the amount of $12,500 to a local Pine Bluff woman. The Annex is adjacent to the Q Store, the Quapaw Nation’s newest convenience store and gas station.
Quapaw leadership is most proud of the economic development it brings to the area. To date, nearly four hundred people have been hired for construction and more than 200 are employed at the Saracen Annex and Q Store.
“This region was once home to the Quapaw Nation. Our presence here is a homecoming, so it’s important to us that the city of Pine Bluff and Jefferson County thrive,” said Chairman Berrey. “This begins with investing in the individuals who live here. Gainful employment benefits the employee, but it also transforms that individual’s household and allows him or her to invest in local businesses and grow the local economy.”
