Vanderbilt Casino Expansion Opens Saturday

Jan 18, 2011

A small but embattled Indian-run casino in Vanderbilt closes temporarily this week to prepare for its expansion.

The Gaylord Herald Times reports the casino will close Thursday and Friday and reopen Saturday - doubled in size.

Meanwhile, two federal lawsuits seek to have the Bay Mills Indian Community casino shuttered permanently.

Area government officials say they anticipate soon receiving their first revenue-sharing payments from the casino.
