I am pointing out their total stupidity by their refusal to compete! A bad casino near me means nothing to me, except that my neighbors will be losing their money on trash games,,,a bad thing.

here's what they are saying in this link:
http://www.battlecreekenquirer.com/a...14/1002/NEWS01

Officials at both casinos said they weren't worried about the competition.

Mike Facenda, FireKeepers spokesman, in fact extended public congratulations to the Gun Lake Tribe on behalf of the Athens Township-based Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi, which owns FireKeepers.

And D.K. Sprague, tribal chairman of the Gun Lake Tribe, said Wednesday, "I don't like the word 'competition.' We have a lot of brothers and sisters in that tribe. We're all a family."

Meanwhile, George Erickcek, a Kalamazoo economist studying FireKeepers' impact on Calhoun County, said he didn't think Gun Lake would pull much business from FireKeepers.

The local casino, located midway between Battle Creek and Marshall, likely pulls most of its traffic from I-94, Erickcek said, while Gun Lake will rely more on U.S. 131 traffic. Both casinos are visible from those respective highways.

Facenda would not say how much business FireKeepers pulls from the Grand Rapids market, but the two casinos are competing.

My Dear friend Sage,

I was at FK tonight and GL was the talk of the casino workers and MGMT. They were concerned about it's opening Friday Morn. The article was very polite, but in reality they both will be at each others throat,,and GL has a long ways to go to close the gap with the other casinos.

Default So Casinos Do Matter

This is probably how casinos compete and apparently rarely realize it. The innocent casino civilian goes to casino A 3 times and loses. So he decides to try his luck at casino B and wins. Where do you think the patron will go next? Now, the casino that has better games is probably the one where the patron won.


good cards

If you're going there this weekend, good luck getting there!

One would think the interchange @ US-131 would have been rebuilt prior to the opening and one might also think that the Tribal leaders would have built more than a 2500 car parking lot, but nooooooooooooooooooo!

The state highway department is responsible for all interchanges on US highway.

Oh I'm well aware of that. You'd think MDOT could have seen this problem coming years in advance though.

Default Don't bother is an understatement!

I decided to check this place out during the wee hours of the morning. I didn't stay more than about 5 minutes. All the lower limit tables were CSM. The 6-deck shoes tables were all $25 min on up. They had a $100 min table that had $1000 max. I couldn't get close enough to a table to check pen.

I checked out VP in 2 diffrent locations. Jacks or Better were all set to 8:5 not 9:6. There may be 9:6 somewhere in the building but I wasn't about to waste time searching for them.

I'm hoping once the crowds thin out the mins on the shoe tables will come down, but for right now there is absolutely no reason to visit this place unless you enjoy waiting for hours in traffic and then getting ripped off once you enter the building.

I am unfamiliar with the local geography, how far is this burn joint from the nearest competing casino?
