Cuningham Group believes that “Every Building Tells a Story.” This philosophy is foundational to the firm’s client-centered, collaborative design approach. By emphasizing one-of-a-kind design solutions, Cuningham Group’s work uniquely reflects their clients’ visions and the character of each property and site. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the contemporary designs the firm creates for their Native American clients.
Cuningham Group is pleased to align its own Native-led design expertise with Full Circle Indigenous Planning LLC, the only Native American-owned, research-based planning and visioning design firm of its kind in the country. Together, the two firms represent a comprehensive solution for Native American clients seeking to design and develop profitable facilities that balance their cultural, social and economic priorities.
The synergy between the two firms is on full display in the brand-new Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash. Set to open in spring 2020, the design and integration of the casino into Tacoma’s urban infrastructure sets a groundbreaking precedent for the future of gaming. Situated four floors above the ground and spanning three sites and two city streets, the casino reclaims lost space and circumvents a restrictive city grid. By breaking the rules of traditional gaming, Cuningham Group and Full Circle are once again redefining what the future of urban tribal entertainment facilities can be.

ECLIPSING THE COMPETITION
Eclipse Gaming will demonstrate our continued commitment to tribal gaming with its lineup of new Class II game content at the NIGA show. Eclipse recently launched Cash Lanterns, the first game in its innovative Anyline Progressive series. This unique game entices players to pursue nine progressive levels—each which corresponds to one of the nine lines in the game, as well as the top progressive which can hit on any line. When operators bank Cash Lanterns together, players see a high hit frequency and start chasing specific line progressives, creating a lot of excitement.
Players will love Jackpot Spins High Roller, which takes wheel games in a completely different direction. Jackpot Spins features a plethora of stacked wilds that activate three spins of the horizontal prize wheel. Anticipation builds as each spin of the wheel can drop jackpots, progressives and various credits into activated chutes on the reels below and multiple prizes may be won in a single spin.
