It's about 20 miles due south of Grand Rapids, MI off US-131. 60 miles from Firekeepers, 100 miles from Four Winds, 175 miles from Detriot.

Hope that helps.

Yes it does. Firekeepers offers decent games by comparison, right? Perhaps once the novelty wears off from this place...

Still haven't heard any factual info from someone who's played the game. Appears to have similar rules to Firekeepers but we'll see.

From what I heard Fri night they were still packed to the hilt and mins were still $25 on 6d shoes.

An update on Gun Lake VP. Don't bother! Not only are there no 9/6 Jacks or Better available, the best odds you can get are 8/5 and are only available on $1 a hand or higher machines. Quarter machines are 7/5 and lower denominations are 6/5. Unfortunately people don't seem to understand anything about the odds and, at least when I was there, where swarming these machines to lose their money. Blackjack can be playable at non-peek hours, but barely.

Default Gun Lake VP

They have a small window to rip off the customer as casinos nearby have fine BJ, single 0 Roulette, nice poker rooms and hotels, restaurants and, 9/6 VP at .25 with progressives, in abundance.

Gun Lake, you suck, and soon your customers will be going elsewhere.

If you look really hard you can find a 9/6 now. But everything else is completely abysmal.

Does anyone know what kind of heat there is in BJ, I stopped by about a month ago and the games were terrible best being a 6D H17, and I think there was a notch to cut off 2decks not sure. I don't remember if you could enter midshoe either (besides the fact every table was packed even at 2am)

9/6? Where is it located and what denomination?

The notch is about 1 1/2 decks, possibly slightly less.

It's at the "HI LIMIT" pit - which for them is just the $1 multi-line machines in the middle of the casino close to the table games.

There's like 6 banks and only one has 9/6 the rest are 9/5.
