CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Interior Department has extended the Northern Arapaho tribe’s authority to conduct Las Vegas-style gambling on the Wind River Reservation to the year 2040.

The tribe operates three casinos, including the Wind River Hotel and Casino just south of Riverton.

The extension paves the way for an expansion of the casino. Tribal leaders plan to complete food court facilities and add rooms to the casino.

Northern Arapaho Business Council chairman Darrell O’Neal Sr. tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1vZTOsd ) that the development will mean hundreds of new jobs and will boost the local economy.
