Oklahoma’s Chickasaw Nation will serve as a development partner on the Shiloh Casino & Resort.

The California property, announced by the Koi Nation Indian tribe in September 2021, will — upon completion — be managed and operated by Global Gaming Solutions (GGS).

GGS is a wholly owned business of the Chickasaw Nation and is responsible for the management of the tribe’s Golden Mesa Casino, the ownership and operation of the hotel towers at WinStar World Casino — the largest casino in the world — and the operation of Remington Park, Oklahoma City’s largest commercial racino.

In a joint statement, the Chickasaw Nation’s “broad range of commercial expertise” was cited as a reason for their partnership.

The Koi Nation’s Vice Chair and Director of Development, Dino Beltran, echoed this sentiment, saying: “Not only does the Chickasaw Nation have great expertise in gaming and resorts, but they also share the same values as the Koi Nation.

“Chickasaw leaders understand the importance of this project to the restoration of our economic self-reliance because they have walked the same path many times in support of their own people’s future.”

The Shiloh Casino & Resort will be located in Sonoma County, near the town of Windsor in northern California.

When built, it will include a 2,500 Class III gaming machine facility, a 200-room hotel, six restaurant and food service areas, a meeting centre and a spa.

“The prosperity of our citizens and a commitment to working together with our partners in the Koi Nation as well as local, state and community officials are key components to our mission,” commented Bill Anoatubby, Chickasaw Nation Governor.

“We look forward to witnessing new jobs, additional businesses and increased tourism to this region.”
