The FireKeepers Casino took its first bets Wednesday, but Lansing-area residents were cashing in long before then. Several local contractors have worked on the $300 million, 236,000-square-foot casino along Interstate 94 near Battle Creek. And about 90 Lansing-area residents have gone to work there as part of an overall staff of 1,500.
