Potawatomi Hotel and Casino details $100m renovation project

Wisconsin’s Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has disclosed a $100m renovation project that it is hoped will revolutionise one of the facility’s gaming floors and deliver the “next era” of entertainment to Milwaukee.

It is anticipated that this will impact more than 120,000 square feet of space and provide guests with a fresh wave of gaming, food and entertainment experiences.

“Since opening more than 30 years ago, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has made it a priority to evolve and meet the needs of our guests,” commented Dominic Ortiz, property CEO and General Manager. 

“Not only will this elevate the brand, it will further our long-standing status as the premier entertainment destination in the region as the market becomes significantly more competitive. 

“This is just the beginning. Additional exciting changes and new amenities are in store. The best is truly yet to come.”

Following the development, Potawatomi has stated that there will be more than 1,800 slot machine stations, including a new bar with 28 bar-top slot seats, a first for the venue, and an array of 4K televisions. Guests will also find cashier stations and a new Fire Keeper’s Club booth.

Furthermore, as well as a pair of food and beverage additions the facility also intends to allow its most loyal guests and key partners access to a new exclusive high-limit room.

“Milwaukee and southeast Wisconsin has been home to the Potawatomi for hundreds of years, and this project is another example of how we are continuing to invest in and better the communities that we call home,” said Ned Daniels Jr, Forest County Potawatomi Chair.

“We are excited to bring these new experiences to our guests and to continue our role as the top entertainment destination in Wisconsin.”

Construction on the renovation project is scheduled for completion by the spring of 2023.
