Bay Mills Resort and Casino

The Bay Mills Resort and Casino is owned and operated by the Bay Mills Indian Community. The casino opened in 1995, and it is located in Brimley in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The casino has slots, table games and a live poker room, and guests can choose to stay at either the hotel or RV park.

The waterfront hotel is spacious, and there are 143 tastefully-decorated rooms. The Bay Mills Indian Community also owns a golf course within walking distance from the resort that features 18 holes and a driving range.

Though the Bay Mills Resort and Casino is the primary casino of the Bay Mills Indian Community, it is not the only casino they own, nor is it the first. The BMIC owns a smaller casino, which is known as the Kings Club Casino. The Kings Club has been open since 1984 when it went by the name of Bay Mills Blackjack Casino.

The casinos are three minutes apart by car, and each offers a different experience.

Bay Mills Resort and Casino Online Partnerships

The Bay Mills Resort and Casino did have a free-to-play online casino, but that has since been shut down. Currently, there are no public plans to open an online casino, even though it is legal to do so.

Ever since Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed legislation that made sports betting and online casinos legal, casinos have been itching to jump on the opportunity. Some casinos are aggressively pursuing online sports betting and online gaming, and other casinos have taken a more methodical approach.

There are reports that the Bay Mills Indian Community has struck a partnership with Scientific Games, an online gaming company that works with companies around the world. The two worked together to develop the Play4Fun website that is now defunct.

So far, there are no plans for any future online casinos. However, that is undoubtedly where the Michigan gaming industry is headed toward.

Bay Mills Resort and Casino Online Casino

As mentioned before, the Bay Mills Indian Community did have a free-to-play online casino experience, but that website is no longer working. A message on the shut-down site thanks players for participating.

The fact that the casino went as far as creating a free online casino indicates they are at least interested in providing an online gaming experience. If anything, the BMIC’s partnership with Scientific Games bodes well for those hoping for an online casino from the tribe.

Nothing has been announced yet, but the general manager of the casino has said more information is coming.
