Caesars Entertainment Corporation has announced it has signed a definitive agreement with the Buena Vista Gaming Authority, an entity of the Buena Vista Rancheria of Me-Wuk Indians of California to bring a new 71,000 square-foot Harrah's-branded facility to Northern California.

"This agreement with the Buena Vista Gaming Authority advances our growth strategy to expand the reach of our brands into new markets and reinforces our over 20-year history working with tribal partners," said Mark Frissora, President and CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "We expect our Harrah's brand and Total Rewards network to increase the earnings potential of the property while generating incremental revenue for Caesars Entertainment without significant capital investment."

Caesars will provide brand licensing and consulting services for the casino, to be named Harrah's Northern California Casino and is located just outside of Sacramento. It’s a 71,000 square-foot property, expected to open in 2019, and will include 950 state-of-the-art slots, 20 table games, one full-service restaurant and three fast-casual dining concepts.
