Milwaukee is not just famous for beer and brats anymore. Add bingo to the list.

The Potawatomi Bingo Casino will draw three million visitors in its first year of operation, according to a Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune report.

The casino, with a 95-foot simulated torch, will bring in roughly 200,000 more people than Miller Park, home of major league baseball's Milwaukee Brewers.

The gaming house, which opened last November, is also attracing more people than the Midwest Express Center, the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Milwaukee County Zoo.

The Patawatomi replaced its bingo hall with a $120 million Vegas-style casino, which also has five restaurants and two theaters.
