About Kewadin Casino Hessel

The Kewadin Casino Hessel is one of five Kewadin-branded casinos owned and operated by the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, meaning the tribe accounts for just under 20% of all Michigan casinos.

Kewadin Casino Hessel opened in 1994, when the tribe also opened casinos in Manistique and Christmas.

As alluded to above, Kewadin Casino Hessel has a smaller gaming floor (6,400 square feet of gaming space), with just 150 slot and virtual table game machines available to guests. However, the casino does a reasonable job of bringing in new machines for returning players while keeping favorites around.

We recommend guests sign up for the Northern Rewards Club, which is Kewadin’s loyalty program. Players can earn points at any of the Kewadin casinos and earn discounted gameplay, free dinners and hotel stays, access to exclusive VIP events, and more!
