FireKeepers Casino offers plenty of games and facilities for an entertaining night out. Additionally, it also allows you to wager on sports at Dacey’s Sportsbook and Taphouse. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the FireKeepers in Michigan and give you our full report.
Take a look at another soon-to-be online sportsbook, Pointsbet.
FireKeepers Casino in Michigan
Firekeepers Casino Hotel spans across 235,000 square feet, with a 111,700 square feet gaming floor. Located in Battle Creek, Michigan, the casino officially opened its doors in 2009.
In the intervening years, the establishment has continued to evolve and expand. At the moment, FireKeepers features 2,900 slot machines, 76 table games, a bingo room, and a live poker room.
Recently, FireKeepers announced a new phase of operations. Namely, with the recent passage of a bill that legalizes online casino and sports betting within Michigan, FireKeepers is getting ready for its online debut.
The operator partnered with Scientific Gaming Corporation which will provide iGaming and sports betting services across the Great Lakes State. So, as soon as the regulations allow it, we can look forward to having the full range of FireKeerpers’ services available online.
Facilities at FireKeepers Casino
FireKeepers casino features five restaurants and a buffet. The venue also hosts a sports bar and cabaret. Only three years following its opening, FireKeepers officially completed the construction of an 8-story hotel.
The resort-style Firekeepers hotel features 243 rooms with 26 suites, an exercise facility, an indoor pool, a full-service restaurant, and a business center.
The hotel area also houses a multi-purpose Event Center that can seat up to 2,000 guests. It is often used as a concert venue, but can also accommodate trade shows, corporate events, and banquets.
In 2016, FireKeepers added a gas station and a convenience store, named “FireKeepers Pit Stop”. Located adjacent to the casino, it allows customers to quickly top up their gas tank while visiting.
Looking into the future, the casino is planning to further expand both online and offline. In 2019, FireKeepers broke ground on the construction of a new hotel tower. The hotel tower will add another 203 rooms, which include 14 suites, a new restaurant, as well as a new high-limit slot and table game areas.
What do the Dacey’s Sportsbook and Taphouse Offer?
In mid-2020, FireKeepers officially cut the ribbon on the first tribally-owned casino sportsbook in Michigan. Dacey’s Taphouse, a popular restaurant and bar, known for its offering of craft beers, became Dacey’s Sportsbook and Taphouse.
So, apart from providing great food and beer, the venue now features self-service betting kiosks and live wagering windows for on-property betting. The restaurant also has multiple TV screens, allowing its patrons to watch the world’s top sporting events.
Dacey’s Sportsbook and Taphouse can host up to 125 guests at the restaurant and bar area. Additionally, there is a mezzanine with room for another 36 guests.
Will there be a Welcome Offer?
At this point, we found no information on a welcome offer. However, this doesn’t mean that we won’t see one available in the future. If there is any new information regarding promotional offers, we’ll make sure to give you an update.
Dacey’s Sportsbook Betting Markets
At this point, Dacey’s Sportsbook offers wagering on golf, soccer, UFC, auto racing, MLB, NBA, and NHL. Additionally, bettors will be able to make wagers on Triple Crown horse races and college sports. We can expect the offering of betting markets to expand even further in the coming months.
Final Thoughts on FireKeepers Casino & Sportsbook
Firekeepers Sportsbook & Casino offer an overall excellent experience, both when it comes to gambling and sports betting. The venue provides its guests with top of the line service, with excellent restaurants, entertaining events and a large selection of casino games.
It is also encouraging to see that the place continues to expand and evolve, constantly adapting to its customers’ needs.
With an online launch bound to happen soon, we are definitely excited to see how the operator’s services translate online. Partnering with Scientific Gaming Corporation is a promising first sign.
The operator seems ready to hit the ground running as soon as the legislation gives it a green light. We will, of course, be there to give you our full report of the operator’s services and promotional offers as soon as the website goes live. So, stay tuned.
