The Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, also known as the Gun Lake Tribe, is taking steps to expand its casino in Michigan.

After years of litigation, the tribe opened the Gun Lake Casino in early 2011. The tribe is now seeking to expand the site by filling in four acres of wetlands around the facility.

Plans haven't been finalized but an expansion could include a hotel, a spa, another parking garage, a bowling alley and a cinema, The Grand Rapids Press reported. A wetlands application that was filed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers envisions a five-year endeavour, the paper said.

“The tribe has explored numerous options for new amenities that would maintain viability in an increasingly competitive casino resort marketplace, while also offering new career opportunities, and more revenue to state and local governments. New amenities would also enhance the entertainment product currently offered to our guests," John Shagonaby, the CEO of the Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority, told the paper in a statement.
