Opened by the Ho-Chunk Nation in July 1999, Dejope Bingo & Entertainment offered a 1,100 seat high-stakes paper bingo hall, pull tabs and electronic bingo. The high-stakes bingo games provided an opportunity for traditional bingo players to win large cash prizes up to $100,000. Although the traditional bingo proved to be successful, technology and Dejope’s goal of always providing a first-class atmosphere led to new state-of-the-art games and renovation of the facility.
With its grand re-opening on Dec. 31, 2006, the “Dejope Gaming” interior was designed to reflect a prairie-style atmosphere with touches of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired styling that flows throughout the corridors and gaming floor. Dejope also unveiled 1,100 state-of-the-art Class II bingo slot games, casual dining at the Gamers Grille and hired more than 200 employees.
In 2010, the facility rebranded itself as “Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison” after introducing a loyalty program that benefits guests who visit all six Ho-Chunk Nation Gaming facilities in Wisconsin. The “Rewards Club” is a points based program redeemable for hotel rooms and merchandise as well as special offers, food discounts, entertainment discounts and other incentives.
As the only facility in Wisconsin dedicated to Class II gaming, its mission to create an atmosphere that is fun, relaxing, exciting and rewarding for guests is illustrated daily by its employees.
