    Mich. Indian Casino Has Problem: Gambling Illegal

    Mich. Indian Casino Has Problem: Gambling Illegal

    ST. IGNACE, Mich. -- There is one thing missing at a new Indian casino in Michigan's Upper Peninsula: gambling.

    The $36 million casino and hotel complex was mistakenly built in an area where gambling is illegal. It opened in June and has restaurants, a lounge and an indoor pool overlooking Lake Huron's Horseshoe Bay north of the Mackinac Bridge.

    However, its 29,000-square-foot casino with 800 slot machines and 26 gambling tables has been unable to operate. The U.S. government said part of the casino was built on land where Indian gambling is not allowed.

    Members of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians are debating who was responsible for the mistake, with the tribe's current and former chairmen blaming each other.
