Sal Semola, the CEO of Gun Lake Casino, said he was proud to receive this recognition. He believes the award validates the efforts of team members who strive to create a special gaming and entertainment atmosphere for guests.

With the casino industry size growing exponentially, the return on investment in casinos is likely to be good. A $350 million renovation is currently taking place at Gun Lake Casino, and it is expected to be concluded in early 2024. It includes a hotel resort, outdoor gardens, an aquadome, and entertainment stages. This will make Gun Lake Casino one of the most modern and biggest facilities in Michigan. The hotel will have 252 rooms and a 32,000 sq. ft. indoor pool complex. It will include tropical vegetation and two pools enclosed by a glass atrium that allows the daylight in.
