On our travels through this great nation, there was plenty to see and plenty to do. In Minneapolis Minnesota, the only casino we went to, and the only casino in town was the Mystic Lake Hotel and Casino. Owned and operated by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux community the Mystic Lake Hotel and Casino has that combination of being within and without; a wonderfully removed appearing place with a wonderful golf course, restaurants, and sweeping vistas and yet the Mystic Lake Casino is just a short half-hour drive to the heart of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Situated on the wonderful Lake Prior, the Mystic Lake Hotel and UFA Casino is one of the entertainment destinations when you’re considering visiting the Twin Cities.
I love casinos, not because I love the endgame (when I run out of money and have to walk away empty-handed) but because of the variety of sights and sounds inside. At the Mystic Lake Casino, they have more than 4,000 slot machines, around 100 blackjack tables, and so much more. If you’re a small-time gambler or if you have no experience at the slots at all, you can still have a great time in the casino at Mystic Lake. According to their website, the Mystic Lake Casino is the Midwest’s “largest casino” and they have the most penny slots in Minnesota. So grab that jar of pennies you’ve been holding onto for all these years and get going! Penny slots are the slowest way to lose the least amount of money and you’re sure to have a great time, even if you feel you have no aim for the game.
Also at Mystic Lake Casino is plenty else to do. Mystic Lake Casino has a steakhouse, a café, a coffee shop, a buffet, and a whole host of other on-the-go food options for the busy visitor. When we were visiting the Mystic Lake Casino it was rather late but we were able to settle down on some chicken poppers from the Gamblers Grill which was one of Mystic Lake’s food-on-the-go options.
Mystic Lake Casino and Hotel has played host to a number of great stars in the past including Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Maroon 5, the Counting Crows and many more. when you’ll be in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area be sure and check back in with the Mystic Lake’s Promenade Stage and see what all the fuss is about.
Whatever your reason for being there; golf, gambling, dining, entertainment, or you just need room to lay your head; the Mystic Lake Casino and Hotel is a perfect option for your getaway dollar in the Twin Cities.
