Then when I turned 18. With the little money that I had. I would go to Legends and either win or donate.

Legends has gone through a lot of changes over the years. I remember there used to be an arcade. And at one point in time. There was a waterfall in the middle of the casino.

But Legends Casino hotel brought in several events. From MMA to boxing matches. To comedy shows and concerts. And many other events, including the pow wow and stick games.

Many celebrities have performed at Legends Casino Hotel. Most recently Chris Tucker, Smokey Robinson, to TLC.


Also over the years. Legends Casino has made some changes. Like adding the hotel and new buffet in 2017. In 2018 There was the addition of the event center. Where a lot the shows are now held.

Legends Casino Hotel has also made donations. To many organizations, not only on the Yakama Nation. But around the Yakima Valley.
