(KFDA)After a recent groundbreaking, construction on the Golden Mesa Casino in Guymon can officially begin.

President and CEO of Global Gaming Solutions, Skip Seeley said the facility will be 42,000 square feet.

It will sit on roughly 103 acres and construction will allow for future additions, including 500 more games, a hotel, RV park and possibly an entertainment venue.

It’s expected to have an annual economic impact of nearly $33.8 million, bringing around 200 jobs as well as new faces to the city of Guymon.
