ST. CROIX CASINO BREAKS GROUND ON NEW HOTEL

 ST. CROIX CASINO BREAKS GROUND ON NEW HOTEL
 TURTLE LAKE, Wis., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- With representatives from


the village of Turtle Lake and the Chippewa Band of St. Croix Indians looking on, officials with St. Croix Casino today broke ground for a new hotel to be located adjacent to the casino. The 159-unit hotel will significantly increase the number of hotel rooms available in the area, and casino officials said the hotel is needed to meet the demand created by Las Vegas-style gaming in this north-central Wisconsin town.
 "This is an important chapter in the growth of Native American gaming in this region," Tribal Chairman Don Saros said. "The casino has experienced much success since its opening, but we knew that many of the people who come here were unable to find overnight accommodations. The new hotel will help solve that problem."
 The new three-story hotel is to be built on the site of the old Lake Motel on Highway 8. Prior to its demolition, the Lake Motel was booked at capacity due to the influx of casino goers. But with less than 20 units, the old motel was unable to meet the demand for rooms.
 "Adding 159 hotel rooms in this area of Wisconsin is a significant investment," said Roy Palmer, a partner of Buffalo Brothers, Inc., a casino-management company that operates St. Croix Casino on behalf of the Chippewas and Buffalo Brothers Management, Inc., and operated as an adjunct to St. Croix Casino. "We know the demand is there. We've already received calls for reservations and we just broke ground."
 Saros said that 50 of the hotel's 159 units should be ready by Dec. 30, with the remaining units completed in March 1993.
 Casino officials said the decision to build the hotel is indicative of the overall success of the St. Croix Casino, which opened in May. The casino boasts Las Vegas-style blackjack tables, slot machines, video poker machines, nightly live entertainment and lavish buffets.
 "The response to the casino has been exceptional," said the casino's Director of Marketing Joseph Hunt. "People enjoy our hospitality, the Native American decor and the gaming opportunities that we offer. And as a result, the tribe and the community are realizing significant increases in revenues. We believe the hotel will only add to the success that we've achieved to date."
 Persons wanting information on reservations should call St. Croix Casino at 1-800-U-GO-U-WIN.
