Further construction planned for Gun Lake Casino

The second phase of a $76 million expansion at Gun Lake Casino, which includes a slots and table games high-limit room and bar, has been completed.

Casino officials recently cut the ribbon on the new high-limit room that will cater to guests who wish to make higher denomination bets on both slots and table games, in a more private atmosphere.

The expansion also features the new bar, Chill, where customers can drink flavored slushy drinks, along with full beer, wine, and cocktail selections, located in the heart of the casino.

The first phase of the 73,000-square-foot expansion, including a 300-seat buffet, additional slots. and table games opened in May. It also included a new Stage 131, nearly double in size from the former Stage 131. 

The casino also has announced the construction of a five-story parking deck, that will have 1,200 parking spaces and four covered-floors. Construction is now underway and will continue during winter months, as weather permits. The 475,000 square-foot parking structure is slated to be completed in the summer of 2018. Clark Construction, of Lansing, Mich., is undertaking the project, which will create 75 jobs, employed by various sub-contractors. 

“These are additional amenities that our guests have asked for and we are happy to provide," says Brent Arena, vice president and general manager for Gun Lake Casino, "as we continue to grow, due to the support of our guests, community, and team members.”
