On September 14 the new poker room was opened at Gun Lake Casino. This is the newest of the other 40 card rooms in the state.
There are 100 people employed in the card room.
It is located in the previous area where Villa Pizza and Johnny Rockets were at the casino. It is a 3,500 square foot area.
Plans for the room were announced in May after the tribe had conducted research on what amenities and games guests were interested in. This resulted in developing a space for poker.
The casino property has worked many times on projects to renovate and expand the gaming venue. In 2016 $76 million was spent to bring more slot machines and table games. Last year plans for a new parking structure were announced.
Gun Lake Casino opened in 2011. It is located south of Grand Rapids by nearly 25 miles.Back
