Work on the expansion began in July 2018 and is expected to be complete in December. The project will allow the casino to offer 500 slot machines, nearly double what they have now. A 76-room hotel at the site is planned in a second phase."We'll have twice the gaming that we have now," said the casino's General Manager, Donald Wren, to ABC 10. "The food and beverage offering will be really unique for us, there are two really great restaurants that will be part of it. And then we're looking at a very eclectic entertainment experience that will appeal to a diverse group of people here in the Marquette area."
Dupuis said the project is proceeding as expected. The casino remains in operation, and no walls have yet been opened to connect the buildings. As for the addition, he said "we're not closed in, but we've tented everything with Visqueen so we're able to comfortably work in the winter and focus on above-ceiling work, and doing MEP rough-ins. It's a pretty typical job, we're just trying to keep everybody working
“Every leader that I’ve talked to within the community here spoke about the lack of convention space," Wren told the Mining Journal. "So now we’re giving them a place to come and stay, we’re giving them a place for conventions, we’re giving them a place for entertainment, and we’re giving them a spectacular casino."
The tribe's Baraga location is getting $6.5 million to fund a facelift of the property, expansion of the gaming facility and upgrades to other areas of the facility's infrastructure.
