Significant growth:

Owned and operated by the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi, FireKeepers Casino opened in August 2009 after more than a decade of planning. Less than two years later, the casino located in Emmett Charter Township, Michigan, between Battle Creek and Marshall, broke ground on a major expansion that included an 8-story resort-style hotel and expanded bingo room.The new 243-room hotel opened to the public on December 12, 2012, complete with an indoor pool, exercise facility, a full-service restaurant, Smoke N Fire, a business center, and a multi-purpose event center that is able to accommodate up to 2,000 guests as a concert venue.

Second hotel tower:

With just two years of operation under its belt, FireKeepers was named a Four Diamond Hotel by AAA and received the honor again in 2018, when in July, after a number of expansions and renovations, the 236,000-square-foot casino and hotel announced plans to construct a new eight-story hotel tower, breaking ground on the new structure on June 17, 2019.

The new build, which is expected to be completed this summer, will provide an additional 203 rooms, including 14 suites, while also reimagining the hotel lobby area within the 39,000 square foot first level. A new signature restaurant, high limit slot and table game areas, along with a new VIP lounge, are all part of the expansion.

In addition to 2,900 slot machines, 70 table games, and a variety of restaurants and bars and lounges, visitors to the property are now able to enjoy a new retail sportsbook, Dacey’s, which opened in June last year.
