Two different Native American tribes are proposing to build casinos in Mountain Home Idaho near Interstate 84. The projects are being planned by Shoshone-Bannock of Eastern Idaho, and the other from the Shoshone-Paiute Tribe on the Duck Valley reservation on the border between Idaho and Nevada. Each tribe is in a different place with their application process to construct the casino. While the Shoshone-Bannock purchased a plot of 157 acres for its project and have renderings of the proposal, they appear to be awaiting a referendum vote from their tribe to move ahead with an application process. The Shoshone-Paiute Tribe has identified a different plot of land they’d like to purchase in Mountain Home, but they have not bought it. The Shoshone-Bannock Tribe is proposing to build a $311 million, 500,000 square-foot casino on a 157-acre plot. The proposal envisions a casino with 2,000 electronic gaming machines, a 250-room hotel, six restaurants, a 15,000 square-foot event center, an 8-lane bowling alley, two movie theaters, and an arcade. It also includes a horse racing track with a grandstand. Shoshone-Paiute is proposing to build their casino on the other side of Exit 95 on Interstate 84, next to Wingers. Shoshone-Paiute has partnered with developer JTC Gaming LLC on the project.
