Grand Casino Mille Lacs is among the premier casinos in Minnesota, and this has a lot to do with its wide array of gaming options. At this attractive casino resort, fans of slot machines have nearly 2,000 to choose from, and some of these machines offer denominations as low as a penny. When a break from the slots is due, checking out the poker room is always an option, as it is open 24 hours a day. You can also saunter up to one of the blackjack tables should you please, and there's often plenty of action going on in the bingo hall. Bingo is offered on a daily basis, though the hours vary, so checking the schedule in advance is recommended.
As is true of its sister property, the Grand Casino Hinckley, the Grand Casino Mille Lacs offers fun pull tab games to go with its other gaming options. Four of the pull tab games can be enjoyed in the bingo hall, while the other seven are offered in the main gaming area. It should also be noted that anyone who signs up for the Grand Rewards Players Club at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs can enjoy special discounts and privileges at the Hinckley establishment as well. The Players Club points that you can earn while gaming at either casino resort can be redeemed for things such as cash back for play, meal comps, and discounted tickets for concerts or other shows.
The Mille Lacs Casino concerts feature some of the biggest names in the music industry, and as such, tickets tend to go fast. Before your concert of choice gets under way, you might treat yourself to a meal at the casino. In addition to an award-winning steakhouse and a buffet that is available seven days a week, the Mille Lacs Casino offers a family-friendly grill, a waterfront eatery that is open for breakfast and lunch, and a low-fuss, fast-food restaurant that serves up sandwiches, pizza, burgers, ice cream, and other quick-eat favorites. It should be noted that unlike its sister casino, the Grand Casino Mille Lacs is a dry casino. As such, it's not exactly the best place to get some drinks while in the area.
Whether you have gaming action in mind or you simply want to enjoy some all around fun in the Mille Lacs area, staying at the Mille Lacs Casino Hotel is worth considering. There are 494 total guest units to choose from at this budget-friendly hotel, and they include both rooms and suites. Standard in-room amenity highlights include flat-screen TVs, free coffee, and hair dryers. Book a suite, and you'll enjoy some added perks to go with your added space. These perks include a microwave and a mini fridge, and depending on which suite you secure, you might also have a fireplace and a whirlpool tub at your disposal. Included in the friendly rates at the Mille Lacs Casino Hotel is high-speed Internet access, and while pets aren't allowed in the hotel itself, the casino offers free kennel services during the peak summer season.
During a stay at the Mille Lacs Casino Hotel, there will be a satisfying variety of things to do on the side when you're not hanging out at the casino. For golfing enthusiasts, area courses such as Fiddlestix and Ruttgers deserve a look, and due to the casino's location on the banks of Lake Mille Lacs, boating and canoeing are among the preferred outdoor things to do. Excellent fishing can also be enjoyed while in the area, especially if you're interested in snagging some walleye, and you don't have to show up in the summer to enjoy it. Ice fishing is a possibility in the winter months, and should you be enjoying a cold weather stay, you can also take to the snowmobile trails that are within easy reach of the hotel's front door or engage in some cross-country skiing on the side. Checking out the Mille Lacs Indian Museum is just one more option for things to do in the area, and back at the hotel, you can fill some of your down time at the arcade or one of the three onsite shops.
