Prairie Band Casino & Resort, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Prairie Band Potawatomi
Nation will enter the second phase of a two-year expansion project in Mayetta, Kansas. Prairie Band Tribal Council and Casino Board Members were present at the groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for July 19, at 4 p.m. Renovations are due to be completed in the fall of 2020.

“Our continued vision is to be a premier employer. With this expansion we will be adding
positions, which will give current staff career growth as well as offer new opportunities for
employment in the area,” said president of PBP Entertainment Corporation Frank Tecumseh.

Prairie Band Potawatomi Entertainment Corporation Board of Directors President Frank Tecumseh spoke about the employment opportunities arising from the expansion.

Currently being developed by general contractor Woodstone and Prairie Band Construction and designed by the architectural firm TBE, the Prairie Band Casino & Resort will feature 74 new guest rooms including two- and three-bay suites. Other amenities include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, dry sauna and steam room, fitness center, patio, game room with virtual Top Golf suite, multi-use rooms for parties and business meetings and an outdoor video screen for sporting events or movies.

Display boards on-site featured artist renderings of the new hotel component exterior along with an inside view of a new suite.

The expansion of the property is part of the company’s strategy to add more entertainment
options and be a destination for families of all ages. “The Prairie Band Potawatomi Board of Directors is ecstatic to begin this phase of our expansion project. These new amenities will differentiate us from our competitors and keep Prairie Band Casino & Resort as the premier destination for entertainment, golf and gaming,” said Tecumseh.

The first phase of the expansion began in 2018 with a new lobby bar, featuring specialty
cocktails and local beers; the Kapi coffee bar; the Embers Bar and Grille; and extensive cosmetic improvements to the casino floor. Guests returning to the casino floor will notice vibrant wall treatments, upgraded lighting, enhanced ceiling décor and a new carpet and floor design.
