Build it and they will come. Gun Lake Casino, located in Wayland, Michigan, recently announced the completion of a $76 million expansion that includes more gaming space, a new bar and major overhaul of their popular Harvest Buffet.
With the expansion, the casino is now home to over 2,000 of the latest and greatest slot machines and nearly 50 table games. The gaming floor also features wider aisles for easier accessibility and overall flow through the casino. The property has also added a state of the art ventilation system to reduce smoke and maximize air flow for the comfort of guests.
“We’re excited to offer these new amenities for our guests. We think they are really going to enjoy the new offerings we have,” commented Brent Arena, vice president & general manager.
The addition also includes a new Stage 131 bar, which will replace the former Stage 131 and is nearly double in size. Stage 131 is known for live, local music seven nights a week with no cover charge and offers guests a great entertainment option before, during or after their gaming session.
When hunger sets in, guests can enjoy a fully renovated Harvest Buffet that now seats about 300 people, offers six cuisine stations, ‘live-action’ cooking stations, two private dining rooms for small groups to rent and more. The buffet offers lunch, dinner, and specialty nights, including steak and crab legs.
Gun Lake Casino will continue its expansion endeavors, with additional table games, a high-limit room, and another bar planned to open late-summer into early fall.
“We’re thankful to the community, our guests, and over 900 team members, who have supported Gun Lake Casino over the years and have made it what it is today,” commented Scott Sprague, chairman for the Gun Lake Tribe. “We’re pleased to offer a fantastic regional entertainment destination, along with employment opportunities and economic growth for our friends and neighbors here in West Michigan.”
The property is owned by the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians and is operated by the Tribe’s management partner, MPM Enterprises, LLC, owned by an affiliate of Station Casinos, Inc. and private investors from Michigan.
