Southern Arizona’s First Casino, Casino of the Sun, Adds Blackjack

Thursday, November 16

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is expanding gaming amenities at Casino of the Sun by adding blackjack to its gaming mix. The casino now offers players blackjack with game limits as low as $3.

“We are happy to offer blackjack to Casino of the Sun guests, rounding out amenities at Tucson’s first casino,” said CEO of Casino Del Sol, Kimberly Van Amburg. “Casino of the Sun is Tucson’s hometown Casino, much like you would find in Downtown Las Vegas. While its sister property, Casino Del Sol, has the feeling of being on the Vegas Strip.”

The Casino of the Sun is proudly owned and operated by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. Casino of the Sun was the first of its kind west of the Mississippi, when in 1982 it began entertaining Tucson residents as the Arizona Club, offering only bingo. Quickly growing in popularity, it became the local staple for entertainment. Today, Casino of the Sun offers more than 300 slot machines, and now, blackjack.

In addition to players enjoying gaming at the casino, they can also enjoy delicious Mexican fare and a full menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Casino of the Sun’s Sunflower Café. Guests will also have a value menu to choose from plus a full bar serving $2 draft beer specials.

Casino of the Sun also announced last month that it is getting another new addition. Construction of a new 11,000-square foot Event Center adjacent to the Casino will allow for meetings, events, and entertainment.

Casino of the Sun is located at 7406 S. Camino de Oeste, Tucson, Arizona 85746.
