Mystic Lake Casino Hotel

2400 Mystic Lake Blvd NW, Prior Lake, MN 55372, United States

Based in Minnesota, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel is operated by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) and opened in 2018.


Mystic Lake Casino Hotel offers over 4,000 slot machines, including traditional single-game slots, multi-game machines, touchscreen and progressive jackpots. There is also a separate High-Limit slot room that customers can use. 

Upholding its roots, the casino also has an extensive bingo program, offering both Cosmic Bingo and Club M Bingo. The games are hosted both in the afternoon as matinee sessions as well as evening sessions, with midnight sessions available at the weekends. 

The casino also offers blackjack sessions but in a similar party-like atmosphere as the bingo games. 

Finally, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel has recently added a line of electronic table games to the pit floor, including Video Craps and Video Baccarat.

History and Renovations

The first gaming operation by the SMSC opened in 1982, called Little Six Bingo Palace. This property would go on to become the Little Six Casino in 1990. 

The Mystic Lake Casino Hotel would open a few years later on May 12, 1992 and was named after the lake it was built adjacent to. 

In 2018, the tribe opened the Mystic Lake Center, a resort that offered 130,000 sq ft of meeting space over 30 meeting rooms, 180 hotel rooms and in-resort catering. 

Tribal Information

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community can trace its roots back centuries along the Minnesota River Valley. 

The tribe was federally recognized in 1969, allowing it to form its own government and economic system. 

As part of this, the tribe would open Little Six Bingo Palace, and later, Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. The SMSC Gaming Enterprise was founded to operate these facilities.

Non-gaming facilities


The Mystic Lake Casino Hotel operates as one of the largest hotels in the Twin Cities. It has 766 rooms and suites across both the Promenade Tower and the Lobby Towers. The rooms range from King Size up to the Luxury Suite.

The hotel also offers ADA Accessible Rooms, with both the King and the Two Double. This includes a bathroom with rails, a roll-in shower, a handheld sprayer and a built-in chair. The smoke detectors have also been adjusted for those with impaired hearing.

RV Resort

The Dakotah Meadows RV Park is located nearby to the casino, with a free shuttle service from the RV resort to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, Little Six Casino and Dakotah Sport and Fitness - all operated by the SMSC. 

The RV resort offers 122 paved, pull-through, and back-in RV sites with electric, water, and sewer connections, as well as an RV wash and self-serve fuel station. 

There’s also a storm shelter, playground, pavilion, store and laundry facilities.


The Mystic Lake Casino Hotel offers a range of restaurants, including the signature Mystic Steakhouse. 


The Mystic Showroom offers a range of shows and events, including live bands and daytime dance sessions for the elderly. 


The Meadows at Mystic Lake is an 18-hole public golf course, set over 160 acres, the course has multiple water features, including 20 fountains and a 2,500ft cascading stream with seven waterfalls. 

The Meadows also offers a facility where customers can practice their swings, a full-service clubhouse, a simulator and other amenities.
