By Bob Garcia
The Illinois gaming property knows competition is coming and is upping the ante
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino appears to be more than ready to renovate its casino floor as part of a project valued at $100 million. As Chicago prepares to welcome a billion-dollar casino and entertainment venue, Potawatomi is trying to keep up, with this investment in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley, announced yesterday.
The resort said it plans to spend this amount of money on a new project that will “revolutionize” the casino’s third-floor area. According to what has been announced so far, the changes include the addition of 1,800 more slot machines, a high-limit gaming room, Starbucks coffee, and Rocks & Brews restaurant from KISS band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, and three new “quick service” dining options.
This project involving more than 20,000 square feet of space will undoubtedly become new gaming, dining and entertainment experience for all future guests. Expansions and renovations such as these are essential to attracting a large following in the casino and entertainment world, such as Americas Cardroom users.
“Since opening more than 30 years ago, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has made it a priority to evolve and meet the needs of our guests,” property CEO and General Manager Dominic Ortiz said. “Not only will this elevate the brand, [but] it will further our long-standing status as the premier entertainment destination in the region as the market becomes significantly more competitive. ”
The project will also be adding an exclusive high-limit lounge with exclusive decor and service, a craft bar, a stage, and gourmet cuisine. Construction is scheduled for completion in spring 2023.
