The spring of 2023 was the start of a major expansion project at Bay Mills Resort & Casino. The casino in Brimley undergoes a $65 million renovation project.
It is also set to create a large number of new job opportunities for the residents in addition to additional amenities for visitors. Plans are for the project to be completed in its entirety by 2024.
The Bay Mills Development Project
2023 is set to be a very productive and successful year for Michigan’s gambling market.
It was earlier reported that Bay Mills is set to start construction on a $65 million project in 2023. The current Bay Mills facilities are undergoing several renovations as part of this $65 million project.
The following improvements to the interior are all included in the plan:
134 extra balconied rooms, a brand-new restaurant, a spa with massage treatment rooms, a pool with a water play area, hot tubs, a nail salon, a fitness center, an arcade, conference rooms, and a storefront.
Also, the resort will provide its staff members access to a larger break area with more space for relaxation, including.
New fishing piers, gazebos, gardens, marina renovations, outdoor patios, and other external resort improvements are all part of the expansion plans.
The Launch Of DraftKings Sportsbook In Bay Mills
In addition to the project, Bay Mills Resort & Casino planned to launch a retail sportsbook. Bay Mills launched a temporary DraftKings retail sportsbook in June of 2022 with the intention to finish the construction by the Fall of 2022.
That long-term vision was complete. Bay Mills made a grand opening on November 6 during Week 9 of the NFL season right before a match between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.
The full DraftKings Sportsbook now includes an over-the-counter ticket cage, a big television wall and odds board, and many self-service kiosks.
Bay Mills has had a lot of success online with DraftKings Sportsbook MI. With approximately $88 million in revenue, it ranks third in Michigan’s all-time sportsbook handle of $1.61 billion.
