Prairie Band wanted to create a much more welcoming and exciting gaming environment that built on elements that were culturally significant to their tribe. In addition to refreshing the overall image of the gaming floor for a better guest experience, Prairie Band identified several non-performing areas to be transformed into a new lounge area and a new coffee bar.
Design & Planning
Planning for the hotel lobby included transforming the lobby seating area into a brand-new Lobby Bar – a social gathering spot to refresh after a round of golf, recharge between gaming sessions, or meet for drinks before dinner. The gaming floor renovation featured an updated game layout, all new finishes, custom décor, and theming.
Build & Install
All decor was prefabricated offsite, including this central structure that was sized for the gaming floor and was approximately 46’x22′. Pre-fabrication of the large structures added to the efficiency of the onsite construction and reduced installation timeframes. The custom chain structure that stretches from one end of the gaming floor to the other, had pre-programmed, color-changing lighting integrated before the structure was installed in the casino. The lighting plays custom timelines created for holidays, gamedays, and other special occasions.
The flowing décor, custom chandeliers, and beautiful ceiling features create a memorable resort destination for casino guests and staff. The all-new areas have contributed to the customer draw for the property and enhanced the guest experience.
“I’ve never seen a gaming floor remodel turn out this seamlessly and end up with such a beautiful product. I really enjoy it, and the feedback that we’re getting from our customers is that it’s just amazing; it looks like a whole new property.”
