Expansion at Gun Lake Casino
Two months ago, Michigan’s Gun Lake Casino opened the doors of its $100m expansion, which includes new restaurants and a larger 131 Sportsbar & Lounge. The project doubled the size of the gaming floor and created an expanded entertainment venue.
The gaming floor was expanded by 72,000 square feet to add 500 new slot machines and 12 more electronic table games. The expansion is part of a larger $300m investment to expand the casino into a hotel resort.
