On April 12, 2016 the Gun Lake Tribe and Gun Lake Casino released details of a $76 million expansion that broke ground in January 2016.  According to the Tribe, the expansion will open in summer of 2017, and will nearly double the size of the casino and include a premiere buffet restaurant, a high limit gaming room, and a new Stage 131 entertainment lounge that will double the current size.

“This $76 million expansion will produce economic growth and more career opportunities for our tribal citizens and our friends and neighbors here in West Michigan,” said Mr. Ed Pigeon, Acting Chairman of the Tribe and Casino Board.  “We are proud to make a significant investment in our property for the enjoyment of guests, which in turn will bring increased benefits to the local community.”

The $76 million expansion will add 73,000 square feet of space to the existing 83,000 square foot facility.  A 300-seat multi-station buffet will offer upscale dining choices that include American, Italian, Mexican, and Asian cuisines.  A completely new and relocated Stage 131 entertainment lounge will be twice its current size. 

The expansion will bring the total number of electronic gaming machines to 2,050 while bringing the total number of table games to 42.  In addition, a new high limit gaming room will also be offered to cater to high rollers. 

“This is a major step forward in the development of Gun Lake Casino as a top-tier gaming entertainment venue,” said Mr. John Shagonaby, CEO of the Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority.  “The addition of more gaming space, premiere buffet dining, and headline entertainers puts our property on par with any in the Midwest.”

Upon opening, the expansion will employ 100 new employees, bringing the total number of employees to over 900.  The construction phase will employ over 300-400 positions.
