The new Ohiya Casino & Lodge is approximately 2 miles east of the former Ohiya Casino & Bingo. Its ground-breaking ceremony was October 14, 2011 after the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) of Minnesota loaned $20 million to the Santee Sioux Nation to build the new 25,000-square-foot casino.
Ohiya Casino & Resort includes a 7-room lodge with two luxury suites, a conference center, an event center, a convenience store and a gas station. An 18-hole golf course and club house opened in Fall 2013.
