MGM Grand's permanent Detroit casino now open The fireworks display was a must for the MGM Grand Detroit casino on Wednesday, when the permanent casino site was officially opened. The new $800 million 400-room 18-story hotel and casino was announced as the first Las Vegas style casino to open its doors in a major metro area outside of Nevada. The permanent casino site sits just a block away from the 1999 temporary casino. Along with the hotel and casino, new restaurants, shopping centers and spas around the MGM Grand begun welcoming customers. MGM Mirage Inc. management commented that the new site is well on its way to become not just gambling, but an entertainment spot for thousands of visitors from the surrounding states, including Canada.

 Meanwhile , the other two Detroit casinos are also working hard on bringing up their permanent sites. Greektown Casino is spending almost half a billion in expansion and renovations, scheduled for completion next year, and MotorCity Casino, which already expanded its gambling floor, is pouring in $275 million on a new hotel.
