Saganing Eagles Landing Casino & Hotel Review

The Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and Hotel first opened its doors in 2007. The focus at this casino is on slots, with expansions seeing more slots than ever before being introduced.

The casino is owned and operated by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan.

There are 1,100 slots to choose from. The introduction of 20 betting kiosks points to a thriving sports betting operation, which is expected to launch soon. This venue has yet to announce a partnership with any provider of online gambling software.

This page has all the key information you need ahead of a trip to the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and Hotel. You will find full details of the casino gambling and sports betting options, as well as all of the promotions offered by the casino. Entertainment offerings, hotel facilities and dining options are also covered below.

History of Saganing Eagles Landing Casino

The casino is located just outside the city of Standish, Michigan. The casino is owned by the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council, who also own and operate the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mount Pleasant. The site opened on New Year’s Eve, 2007, with more than 800 slots on the casino floor.

A huge expansion to the site in 2019 saw the addition of more gaming space, to push the number of slots over a thousand. A hotel was added to make the casino into a true resort complex, while further dining options were also added.

Slots at the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino

The casino has a gaming floor of 32,000 square feet and features in excess of 1,100 slots. The casino features a mix of different slots. They include some of the newest and liveliest games from the main slot studios.

Examples of popular games which are highlighted on the Saganing Eagles website include:

  • Hearts and Horns — This slot is based around Cupid with five levels of progressive jackpots. The Grand prize is the largest of all, offering payouts in the thousands of dollars. The bonus game is an entertaining feature where you aim to fill reels with hearts to win one of those progressive jackpots, with bonus cash to be won along the way.
  • Yardbirds 3: Return of the Chicken — This is another slot featuring a progressive jackpot. Those of you who are familiar with the Angry Birds app will see that the game’s imagery is loosely based on that. Look out for the series of fun egg-based bonus features in play.
  • Lucky Buddha — Another progressive jackpot slot — this time with major, minor, and mini payouts. The highlight of the game is the Wheel of Fortune-style bonus game where you can win either cash prizes or one of those jackpots. Lucky Buddha features Asian imagery and a traditional soundtrack.

Other highlighted slots at the casino include:

  • Ultimate Fire Link
  • Da Li Golden Wins
  • Treasure Ball
  • Wonder 4
  • Patriot
  • Dragon Link

The slot selection includes all types of games. There are games with mechanical reels, right through to the latest branded multimedia video slots.

How does the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and Hotel compare?

Saganing Eagles Landing Casino and Hotel is one of the smaller casinos in Michigan that focuses mainly on slots. With more than a thousand games to choose from, including many progressive jackpot opportunities, there is something for everyone at the casino. Linked to the larger Soaring Eagle Casino (they are both owned by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan), this casino almost acts as the smaller sister to that larger site.

With the recent renovations, including more floor room, the addition of the hotel and The Landing restaurant, as well as sports betting arriving, this casino is ready to take the next step.
