A casino in the area is getting bigger.

The Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority announced last week the planned expansion of Gun Lake Casino in Wayland to add additional gaming, entertainment and dining options.

The expansion is expected to open in the summer of 2017.

Included in the project is a gaming-floor expansion, a 300-seat buffet area, expansion of the State 131 lounge and expansion of the employee dining and lounge areas.

The northwest parking lot of Gun Lake Casino will be closed during construction.

Site work prepping for spring construction has begun by Lansing-based Clark Construction Company.

“Guest experience is our number-one priority, which is why our expansion will focus on our core entertainment offerings,” said Ed Pigeon, vice chairman, Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority Board. “We also devoted resources to making great career opportunities even better for our team members.”

Gun Lake Casino, owned by the Match-E-Be-Nash-She Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, has more than 1,600 slot machines, 33 game tables, a food court, 225-seat café, bars and lounges.
