Wetumpka Hotel/Casino to Become Alabama's Largest

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Alabama's largest casino project, the 17-story Wind Creek Atmore, will soon be eclipsed by the 20-story Wind Creek Wetumpka.

Both are owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.

Property manager Cody Williamson said Thursday the casino will open Dec. 17 and the hotel in late January or early February. The Wetumpka casino has 2,520 electronic games compared to 1,600 in Atmore. The Wetumpka hotel has 283 rooms compared to 236 in Atmore.

Project director Rob Lee of the Hnedak Bobo Group of Memphis, Tenn., says the hotel is designed with all rooms facing the Coosa River, which flows alongside the hotel and casino.

The project cost $250 million. It will replace a smaller casino the Creeks have operated next door.
