Oneida tribe to invest $28M in Wis. casino remodel

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- The Oneida Tribe of Indians is planning a nearly $28 million expansion and remodeling of its casino near Green Bay.

The project will give the main gambling floor a facelift and transform the atrium into an expanded gambling area. General manager Louise Cornelius tells Gannett Wisconsin Media that the tribe also is adding new restaurants that include a sports bar and grill in an effort to bring in more non-gamblers.

The tribe also is installing more slot machines and adding a new VIP lounge at its smaller casino on West Mason Street in Green Bay.

The main casino in Ashwaubenon cost $36 million when it was built in 1993. It draws about 2 million people per year.
