Bay Mills Resort & Casino

Bay Mills Resort & Casino is a casino complex located on the banks of Lake Superior’s Waiska Bay in Brimley, on the bucolic Lakeshore Drive. It is owned and operated by the Bay Mills Indian Community, leaders of casino enterprise operations among native tribes in Northern Michigan. The Bay Mills Indian Community opened Michigan’s first casino, the Kings Club Casino, back in 1984.

Bay Mills Resort & Casino opened in November 1995 on more than 17,000 square feet of gaming space, with close to 700 of the hottest new slot machines and eight table games with the friendliest of dealers. Bay Mills Resort & Casino partnered with DraftKings in 2020 to bring online casino gaming and sports betting to the Upper Peninsula of the Great Lakes State. DraftKings’ online casino and sportsbook app went live on Jan. 22, 2021.

DraftKings first opened a temporary retail sportsbook at Bay Mills Resort & Casino on June 22, 2022, pending the completion of a permanent DraftKings retail sportsbook. The grand opening of the new sportsbook occurred on Nov. 6, 2022.

Bay Mills Resort & Casino property is also home to a 143-room waterfront hotel, an RV trailer park, several restaurants, a casino gift shop, and a championship 18-hole golf course.

Bay Mills Resort & Casino slot machines

Over 600 different slot machines are spread across 17,000 feet of gaming space at Bay Mills Resort & Casino. The slots are provided by leading software companies such as IGT, Aristocrat, Konami, Everi, and many others. From penny to multi-dollar machines, Bay Mills Casino slots include all the hottest and most exclusive titles in the industry. The latest exclusives to the area include Everi’s Fu Lu Shou™ Land of Wealth, Aristocrats COIN TRIO™, and several other exclusive releases.

Among the most popular slots on offer, patrons can find the following:

  • Dragon Link — There are four Asian-themed games in the Aristocrat’s Dragon Link series with progressive jackpots and multiple bonus features, such as Hold & Spin with an orb trigger symbol that appears across all titles. Dragon Link slots are available in multiple denominations.
  • Dollar Storm — The Dollar Storm series of slots brings multiple titles, such as Caribbean Gold, Ninja Moon and Egyptian Jewels under one roof. All of these multi-denomination games from the series feature the Hold & Spin bonus as well as free games, retriggers and progressive jackpots, with the six-figure Super Grand Jackpot as the top prize.
  • Reef of Riches 3-D — Reef of Riches is a 3D slot game by IGT with a 5×4 reel set and an exciting pirate theme. It’s a Trigger Tiles slot, just like IGT’s Jungle Riches, where you need to shatter all 20 titles to trigger the bonus game. They shatter when you get two or more scatters; if a symbol lines up and the tile behind it hasn’t shattered, it will do so at any random spin. Reef of Riches brings three different jackpots available at any bet level.
  • Buffalo Ascension ™ — Buffalo Ascension is another release from Aristocrat’s iconic Buffalo series. This time, the slot comes with 5,488 ways, a progressive jackpot and an enhanced free spins feature with multipliers.
  • Super Buffalo ™ — Super Buffalo™ is Everi’s latest 243-ways-to-win slot with 15 reels and scores of bonus features. If you collect six bonus symbols, you’ll activate the wheel bonus and possibly win a multiplier up to 10X or a chance to win 10 wheel prizes. The game comes with a progressive jackpot bonus as well.
