Gun Lake Casino Opens Phase 2 Expansion & Announces Additional Construction Plans

On Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, Gun Lake Casino cut the ribbon to unveil the completion of the second phase of the $76 million expansion project, which includes a slots and table games high-limit room and bar.

The new high-limit room will cater to guests who wish to make higher denomination bets on both slots and table games, in a more private atmosphere. The new bar, Chill, features multiple flavored slushy drinks, along with full beer, wine, and cocktail selections, located in the heart of the casino.

In May of this year, Gun Lake Casino opened the first phase of its 73,000 square-foot expansion, including a 300-seat buffet, additional slots and table games, along with a new Stage 131, nearly double in size from the former Stage 131.

“We’re thrilled to see the second phase of the expansion completed,” commented Brent Arena, vice president & general manager for Gun Lake Casino. “These are additional amenities that our guests have asked for and we are happy to provide, as we continue to grow, due to the support of our guests, community, and team members.”

Gun Lake Casino is equally excited to announce the construction of a five-story parking deck, which includes 1,200 parking spaces, and four covered-floors. The 475,000 square-foot parking structure is slated to be completed in the summer of 2018. Construction is now underway and will continue during winter months, as weather permits.  Clark Construction, of Lansing, Mich., is completing the project, which will create 75 jobs, employed by various sub-contractors.
