The state of Michigan has become a gambling mecca. And with 23 Michigan casinos across two beautiful peninsulas, there’s no shortage of places to test your luck.
Detroit prides itself in providing exceptional gaming experiences at three impressive establishments — Greektown Casino, MGM Grand Detroit, and MotorCity Casino — but even the most dedicated gamers could use a change of scenery from this trio of Motor City venues.
Indian Trails has just expanded its Tuesday casino service to FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek, adding six Metro-Detroit pick-up locations. Bonus: Indian Trails and FireKeepers have partnered to provide free casino slot play to seniors 55 years and older on Tuesdays. Why should you go on a casino bus trip? Test your luck, have a unique experience, and enjoy luxury amenities along the way!
Here’s everything you need to know about the new weekly casino bus trips.
How much does it cost?
The $20 bus ticket includes roundtrip transportation and up to $25 in free casino play. This service is only available on Tuesdays.
How do I book my ticket?
Casino trip reservations are now first come first serve. No need to reserve your seat ahead of time - just show up at the pick-up location and pay your driver as you board the bus. Payment is available by credit card.
Where do I board?
Indian Trails offers casino trips to FireKeepers from Metro Detroit and the mid-Michigan area.
If you’re coming from the Detroit area, you’ll be picked up and dropped off at a Meijer facility. You can board at the Meijer in Rochester Hills, Southfield, Northville, Wixom, Brighton or Ann Arbor.
