ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A casino near Rio Rancho is planning a $50 million expansion project that will include the property’s first attached hotel.

The project will take about two years to complete and Santa Ana Star Casino officials estimate it will create approximately 120 permanent positions and hundreds of temporary construction jobs.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/2a4iOu3) reported Monday that work is set to begin this month on the expansion project.

The casino isn’t releasing additional details about the size of the hotel, but officials say it will be located to the east of the casino.

Santa Ana Star Casino is off Highway 550 just north of Rio Rancho.

It was the first Indian casino to operate in New Mexico, opening its doors in 1993.
