Michigan Island Resort and Casino Unveils $33 Million Expansion

Island Resort & Casino has completed a $33 million expansion of its hotel and steakhouse. Currently working on a sports bar.

USA.- The Island Resort and Casino, located on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, completed a $33 million expansion on time and on budget. The project includes 128 new rooms and suites, an upscale steakhouse and a water park.

The new amenities have been added to the property just three years after an $8 million investment in a new spa, the addition of a second pitch golf course, renovations to the Hannaville bingo facility (the property was originally opened as a public bingo facility over three decades ago), and the Main Entrance.

Island Resort & The Casino, owned and operated by the Hannahville Indian Community, is currently in the process of developing the area adjacent to T. McC’s Sports Bar and building a new sportsbook that is expected to be completed by early May.

General Manager Tony Mansilla said:

“Most casinos in Michigan and northern Wisconsin are getting smaller due to a number of factors such as online gaming and lotteries. But we just keep growing. There is a demand for it, and we are meeting it.”

Expansion plans were announced in January 2020, just a few months before the Coved-19 restrictions. Due to the pandemic, the resort was closed for six weeks. Island Resort & The Casino was one of the first gaming establishments in the US to reopen in May 2020.
