Treasure Island receives ‘sexiest casino’ recognition


RED WING, Minn. – Native American Casino Magazine has placed Treasure Island Resort & Casino third in its choices for top 10 sexiest casinos.

NAC evaluated more than 360 Native American casinos in North America on architecture and design, inside and outside of the casino, the hotel, entertainment, restaurants, golf course, gaming facilities and several other categories. Treasure Island Resort & Casino was the highest rated casino in the Midwest and the only Minnesota casino to make the list.

“Treasure Island Resort & Casino works very hard to provide a memorable entertainment experience for everyone – people who love to game, people who are looking for exciting entertainment options and families. It is also a reflection of how hard our team members work to provide world class service to our guests,” said Marcene Hardy, director of marketing. “Last fall we completed a $50 million project that would establish Treasure Island as the premier destination resort casino in the Midwest and it is great to receive this award.”

The new 3,000-seat Treasure Island Event Center is a non-smoking facility that hosts national entertainment and performers, and no seat is more than 125 feet from the main stage with state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment.

With an award-winning chef, six restaurants and food options for everyone, Treasure Island has it all. The hotel offers 480 rooms and suites plus an experienced staff to ensure every visit is exceptional. The Island Xtreme Bowl and arcade features a 24-lane Brunswick bowling alley and more than 40 of the hottest arcade games.

Golf is available at Mount Frontenac and the on-site marina and 120-passenger cruise ship offer other entertainment options.

According to Mark White of NAC, Treasure Island Resort & Casino had the right combination of hot games and sizzling entertainment plus fun amenities for families.

“A sexy casino is one that leaves a person feeling the gaming experience from head to toe. It is a casino that takes your imagination to places it’s never been while touching on all the senses,” said Melanie Dellas, NAC editor. Native American Casino is a respected and award-winning gaming publication that covers the Native American casino industry. The results of the sexiest casino were published in the May issue.
