Paragon Gaming Holding Company will develop and manage the planned 700-slot casino near Palm Springs, Calif.
The Las Vegas casino consulting firm, headed by Diana Bennett, signed a pact with the Augustine Band of Cahuilla Mission Indians. The property will be the sixth casino in the Palm Springs area.
Bennett is the daughter of long-time gaming executive Bill Bennett, now the owner of the Sahara hotel-casino. The latest Palm Springs area casino is slated to open by mid-2002.
