MILWAUKEE (Jan. 23, 2023) – Construction will soon begin on Potawatomi Casino Hotel’s permanent sportsbook, set to be located in the northwest corner of the casino, replacing the Northern Lights Theater and the Fire Pit Sports Bar & Grill.
“This is a transformational time at Potawatomi Casino Hotel,” said Dominic Ortiz, Potawatomi Casinos and Hotels’ CEO. “For more than three decades, we have served as a leader in Tribal gaming. With the addition of sports betting, we’ll be providing our guests with even more options and welcoming new visitors to the property and the Menomonee Valley.”
In the coming weeks and throughout construction of the sportsbook venue, the casino will provide guests two locations, with 17 kiosks between them open 24 hours a day, to place bets on their favorite teams.
One of those locations will be near the former Fire Pit Sports Bar & Grill. Here, guests will find a full bar, eight high-definition televisions and one large LED screen to take in the day’s biggest games. Kiosks will also be found off of the skywalk on the property’s second level. Both locations will provide odds boards. Sports betting guests will also enjoy 20-minute dedicated parking spots in the structure. All bets must be placed on site.
Construction of the sportsbook comes in the midst of the property’s $100 million renovation to its second level, expected to be completed in phases during the summer and fall of 2023. Here, guests will enjoy a modern space with new gaming, an exclusive high-limit room, Rock & Brews – the property’s newest restaurant founded by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons of the legendary band KISS, and much more.
