A new high-limit table games room and an Asian cuisine restaurant will be part of a $10 million interior renovation at Gun Lake Casino. The upgrades are expected to be completed before the end of this year.

The changes to the interior of the existing casino will coincide with the ongoing $300 million “Phase 5” expansion that will result in a 15-floor hotel, aquadome, concert venue, swimming pools and banquet center.

The new Four Diamond rating hotel will have 252-rooms, making it one of the largest resort/casinos in the state. That project is scheduled for completion early in 2025.

Located in Wayland MI, Gun Lake Casino is owned and operated by the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians. It has achieved status as a premier entertainment and resort destination.

For each of the last three years, Revue Magazine has named Gun Lake “Best of the West” in the casino category for the state of Michigan.

Renovation: ‘Continuing our commitment to enhancing the guest experience’

Gun Lake Casino’s CEO Sal Semola said the renovations are:

“Continuing our commitment to enhancing the guest experience through innovation and excellence, this $10 million investment by the Gun Lake Tribe will bring a new noodle restaurant, a new center bar, and a new high-limit table games room.”

The interior renovation project will result in some shuffling of space in the casino and restaurant area temporarily. But, the gaming floor remain open.

The casino will still offer roughly 2,500 slot machines, 50 gaming tables, a poker room and more. Gun Lake Casino is also home to the 131 Sportsbook and Lounge.

According to the Gun Lake Casino website, which hosts a camera feed of the Phase 5 expansion (above), the aquadome structure, which has a unique arched dome that will rest above the pool, spa, and restaurant areas, is taking shape. The aquadome can clearly be seen in photos and the camera feed.
