Gun Lake Casino Review

Sports bettors in Michigan have several online options available to them. Several casinos, like the Gun Lake Casino in Wayland, offer an online experience, but still require you to be present to place your bet. The Gun Lake app allows you to build bet slips from anywhere in the world, but in order to execute them, you must present at the casino. 

Here is what you can expect from the Gun Lake Betslip Builder app in conjunction with the Gun Lake Casino Sportsbook.

Gun Lake Casino Locations

The Gun Lake Casino operates the 131 Sportsbook & Lounge which is located on property near Wayland, Michigan. There is a companion mobile app available. However, the app can only be used to generate a QR code that you must take to a retail counter or kiosk in order to place your bets. You can also access the sportsbook options on a website which mimics the app visually and functionally.  

Sports Leagues to Bet On

NFL Betting

The depth of betting possibilities for the NFL slate surpasses several of their major national competitors. Of course there are the basics including moneyline, spread, and point total bets, but those only scratch the surface.

Each game also breaks out into a bounty of additional possibilities. Among them are same game parlays that allow you to build your own monster line choosing from moneyline and spreads, but also, total points per each team, exact winning margin, and many more options. 

A full menu of game props is also available to include first to a point total, first scoring play among others. On top of all of that, a healthy dose of player props can be found offering bets on  offense, defense, and special teams.

Something highly exciting for bettors is the ability to tease points spreads directly from the app. Futures bets are also live with chances to bet on not only the Super Bowl champions, but also the first overall bet in the NFL Draft.        

NBA Betting

Basketball bettors will find a full slate of NBA games to choose from every day. As always, you can place bets on the standard game outcomes. Along with those, you can find a few more interesting options such as “result at the end of the 4th quarter,” and “total points odd/even.” As with every sport on the books, you are given the ability to tease points spread to your own comfortability. 

There is no shortage of bets in the NBA futures markets here as well. Pick the overall champion, or dive deeper and bet on conference winners or even divisional winners. But, it doesn’t stop there. Individual team markets are available with the ability to bet on season win totals and playoff appearance. 

Individual player and coach bets are offered as well with league leading scorer, 6th Man, defensive player, coach of the year, and most improved player award bets listed.      

College Football

Fans of college football betting will not be disappointed in what Gun Lake Sportsbook has to offer them. All of the FBS games for the weekend are available with plenty of action to be had. Not only will they get what they expect to find on every other book in the market, but they will also find plenty of game and player props as well. Same game parlays can be built across the entire offering of lines.    

A healthy futures market can be found including conference winners, Heisman winners, and of course, which team will win it all.  

College Basketball

The NCAA college basketball scene is well represented here. In season action includes daily, single-game betting. Preseason bets are also available including final four odds as well as championship lines.    

NHL Betting

Stick and puck fans can find all of their favorite hockey action offered on the app. There is a general lack of prop betting options unfortunately, but there are game combos that combine outright winners and total goals as well as an option to combine spreads and total goals. 

MLB Betting

It’s almost impossible to find a betting angle that is not offered on the Gun Lake platform. Full game slates are standard, but the bigger draw for MLB bettors are the wealth of prop bets available within each game. Player props covering both hitting and pitching totals as well as individual inning outputs are among the plethora of props you can find. 

Other Sports Leagues

The Gun Lake Sportsbook lets you dive deep down the rabbit hole offering secondary market sports such as soccer leagues from around the world, Euroleague and FIBA World Cup basketball, golf, boxing, UFC/MMA, Formula 1, NASCAR, Australian Rules football, cricket, darts, floorball, rugby, and even snooker. You can also bet on the winner of the Academy Awards if you so choose.

Online Betting Experience

Website Experience

The Gun Lake Sportsbook offers a clean and easy to navigate web client. It mimics the mobile app in every way including the layout and functionality. You will find a listing of available options at the top of the page with a search bar perched on top of it.

Large, engaging graphics underneath those will take you straight to the action as well. Among them is a tab that will tell you how many live events are being offered. It will also take you directly to the live betting page when clicked. 

A full content tree can be found on the left hand side of the page. A tally of the available bets for each sport is displayed alongside each listing. 

As with the mobile app, you are unable to place actual bets. Instead, you build a retail bet ticket that generates a QR code that must be scanned in person at the casino.

Mobile Betting and Betting App

You will not be able to find the mobile app on the Google Play store. Instead, you must download it straight from the Gun Lake website. A direct download link can be found under the “131 Sportsbook,” tab. A link to the App Store listing can also be found on the page as well, or just search for, “Gun Lake Betslip Builder.”

Once you open it, the app takes you instantly to the action. All of the available games are listed on the home screen as well as options to navigate to individual sports offerings at the top. Everything is well labeled, distinct, and easy to access.

Along the left hand side, you’ll find a complete listing of available bets. Each sport also features the number of bets currently offered. You can also access live betting options as well as soon to start events.

I found this app to be extremely straightforward and actually fun to use. Building bets never took me away from the lines and the betslip display was not confusing or frustrating. What’s more, teasing bets is as easy as dragging a slider giving you even more control over your bets.   

Live Betting

Not only are there an abundance of live betting options, but they are not hard to find. There is a tab dedicated to the sports happening at the moment. Baseball live betting even gets as specific as pitch-by-pitch predictions. Tennis and soccer live betting even display a graphic display of the action in real time.     

Casino, Poker, & Other Gaming Options

The Gun Lake Casino is partnered with the Parx Casino in Philadelphia to offer their sportsbook. Casino games are available on the website and are also a product of the betParx brand. However, you can not access casino games from the Gun Lake Sportsbook app.   

Gun Lake Casino History

In 2011, the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians opened the Gun Lake Casino. When their doors opened, they offered over 1,400 slot and video poker machines as well as table games like blackjack, roulette, and craps.  

In October of 2020, the casino opened the Stage 131 Sportsbook in which sports bettors could place bets on location. Almost a year later, in August of 2021, the Gun Lake Casino officially launched its online companion platform via its mobile app and website. This allowed for bettors to build betslips from anywhere in the world.   

Customer Ratings & Reputation

There is nothing to go on in terms of reviews for the app. Currently, the App Store has one, 1-star review from 2021 stating that the app did not work, or open. Obviously, that issue was resolved as I was not only able to open the app, but spent plenty of time building bets. 

Customer Service

Any immediate problems can be addressed by calling the casino directly. If you can wait for a reply, filling out the contact form on the page will get you the answers you need. 

Gun Lake Casino Contact

There is no option to contact customer support directly from the app, or the web client of the sportsbook. You can find a contact form on the Gun Lake Casino’s main website. Or, you can visit or call the main casino.

Why Choose Gun Lake Casino?

There are many reasons to turn to the Gun Lake Sportsbook if you are in the area and willing to visit the physical casino location. You can find favorable odds, plenty of betting options to choose from, as well as an extremely user-friendly mobile app. Obviously, the biggest drawback here is not being able to deposit funds or cash out bets directly from the app. However, the lack of that option is understandable given the desire for bettors to spend time and money at their casino. 

An abundance of live betting opportunities will also keep you close to the betting counter. And, while the lounge may close at 10 PM daily, sports bettors can still access the retail kiosks 24-hours a day.
