The Gun Lake Tribe and Gun Lake Casino have revealed expansion plans for the casino; the $300m project is set to improve on the current hotel resort.
The Gun Lake Casino has already had multiple expansions since it opened in 2011; however, none have been as ambitious as this latest plan, despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Now the casino will be able to offer its customers a new hotel, a domed pool, luxury spa and more dining options. The expansion is set to add around 250,000 square feet to the location.
President and COO of Gun Lake Casino, Sal Semola, said: “Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the reputation as a leading entertainment and gaming destination in Michigan.
“As a vital business in Allegan County, we recognize our ability to invest in our local community. The elevation of our offered amenities drives our economy through tourism and directly impacts the livelihood of local citizens through the development of new job opportunities.”
Tribal chairman, Bob Peters, added: “The Tribe remains steadfastly committed to reinvest in our collective future, for the benefit of tribal citizens, team members and the local community.
“This will provide even more employment opportunities and enhance Gun Lake Casino’s position as a tourism driver for western Michigan.”
The renovation of the casino is set to be completed by the upcoming summer period and designs are set to start once the construction is completed.
