"We thought it was a fun idea in terms of sprucing up the surrounding area. It’s not the front door, but it's the first piece of real estate you see on your way to us," a Motor City Casino spokesperson told Metro Times."Our local landscaper said 'how about some palm trees?' and we thought it would be awesome. Our branding from a marketing standpoint is "a million miles away, right down the street" so it's sort of an escape, like teleporting away."
