The Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians has completed the second phase of a casino expansion project.

The Grand Portage Lodge and Casino added 12,000 square-feet of space, according to news reports. There's room for 430 slot machines, blackjack tables and more dining options.

“Everybody’s excited about our offerings,” general manager Steven StandingCloud told Fox 21. He noted that the upgrades have incorporated elements of tribal culture.

The first phase of the project was completed in late 2015. It included upgrades to the 95 hotel rooms at the facility.

The third and final phase will bring new office space, an convention / event center and other amenities. It's due to be completed later this year.

The casino is located in Grand Portage, several miles south of the U.S.-Canadian border.
