Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel General Manager, Dan Stromer said that one of their main aims is to be the number one gaming destination throughout the whole Midwest. They are planning on adding a new hotel spa, an enlarge pool area, an entertainment complex and restaurants, golf course, hiking trails and even a waterpark to accomplished that goal.

General Manager Stromer added that they want to offer their customers not only gambling choices but also a variety of entertainment choices and amenities that they can enjoy with their loved ones and not only by themselves.

"It's not always about more slot machines and more tables, but it's entertainment choices and amenities and that has as much to do with it as anything," Stromer said.
