In the 20th century, the tribe generated income through cigarette sales. They could sell them at a lower price and tax-free to non-Natives, as their reservation is sovereign territory and they need not pay state taxes from their businesses.
In recent years, [ when? The tribe and the state have a sharing of tax revenue collected from sales of cigarettes. Since the late 20th century, numerous states have used gambling , based on lotteries and other methods, as a source of revenue to support programs wanted by taxpayers.
Changes in federal law and negotiations with such states have enabled federally recognized tribes on many reservations to establish bingo and other gambling facilities to generate revenue.
Searching for new revenues and employment for its people, the Puyallup opened the Emerald Queen Casino in on a paddlewheel riverboat , the Emerald Queen , which it berthed in the Port of Tacoma.
In , as part of an agreement with the Port to accommodate further commercial development of the waterway, the tribe closed the operation on the boat and its shore-side property.
The Emerald Queen riverboat is still located at the site, but is closed indefinitely. The tribe has developed related gaming and entertainment facilities in two other locations, keeping the name Emerald Queen Casino for its overall operation.
In the 21st century, a majority of the tribe's income is generated from the gambling casinos and related restaurant, retail and hotel facilities.
In total area, the casino is one of the largest [ clarification needed ] in Washington state. It has locations in both Tacoma and Fife.
The Tacoma location, also known as the Interstate 5 I-5 location, includes the casino, a restaurant and buffet, a nightclub, and an entertainment venue hosting singers and comedians.
The entertainment venue, in collaboration with Brian Halquist Productions, Inc. Originally intended as a temporary facility, the tent has continued to be used pending other development.
The permanent structure of the casino is located in the old Puyallup Bingo Hall. The I-5 location opened originally in , and the tent addition was opened in The Fife location includes a casino and a room hotel.
The tribe adapted a Best Western hotel for these purposes after purchasing the building in After renovation, the casino was opened in early The tribe undertook a major expansion in summer , building two parking garages, a pool, a spa, new administrative towers, a ballroom, and a larger gaming area.
The casino's restaurant, formerly named the Pacific Rim, was moved to the south tower and renamed the Tatoosh Grill. What is now the Pacific Rim Buffet is located on the ground floor of the tower.
The Puyallup Tribe has used its economic development branch, Marine View Ventures, to expand into operating several gas stations on the reservation.
In the early 21st century, it was using gambling revenues to invest in a partnership for a large container facility at the Port of Tacoma.
When completed, it will be the largest such facility in the Northwest and will connect the tribe to the shipping trade.
The Puyallup Tribe has also invested in the state's legal cannabis market. The tribe's first recreational cannabis store, Commencement Bay Cannabis, is located in Fife, adjacent to the casino itself.
