Mystic Lake Casino Hotel may now serve alcohol to guests. Approval came on Wednesday allowing for the casino to offer wine, beer, and liquor. The addition of alcohol sales to the casino has also added 70 new jobs. This includes bartending positions and servers for banquets.
Permission had to be given from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs as well as Minnesota Department of Public Safety before the casino could begin offering alcohol to casino guests. The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community operates the Mystic Lake Casino. The tribe began seeking permission in May.
Alcohol service and alcohol awareness training has been provided to the casino employees.
The casino is the largest gaming operator in the state. In the state's 20 gaming facilities, alcohol may be served at 14 of them.
