Extension of Closure at Gun Lake Casino for the Health and Safety of Guests and Team Members

To protect the wellbeing of all Gun Lake Casino guests and team members, the voluntary short-term closure, originally scheduled to end on March 30, 2020, has been extended until April 13, 2020. Gun Lake Casino team members will continue to receive full compensation. All casino events, including promotions, free bet offers, free slot play offers, and dining offers are cancelled.

“In the midst of this worldwide crisis, the Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority along with Gun Lake Casino management have been working diligently to uphold our commitment to our team members and the community,” said Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer for Gun Lake Casino. “We truly look forward to continuing to provide the ultimate entertainment experience in West Michigan, and we will do so as soon as it is safe. For now, our priority focus is to continue to take care of our team members, providing our guests with vital updates, and monitoring this sensitive situation.”

During this unpredictable time, Gun Lake Casino has made a strong commitment to ensure every team member has access to many benefits and compensation. All team members were fully compensated for the initial closure from March 16, 2020 through March 30, 2020. In an unprecedented move, and a show of dedication to being a premier employer in West Michigan, all team members will continue to receive these same benefits and compensation through April 13, 2020, totaling four weeks of benefits.

In addition to full compensation, team members are provided with health care benefits and access to the Gun Lake Tribal Health Center, located in the Gun Lake Tribe Government Campus across from Gun Lake Casino.

Gun Lake Casino will continue to monitor this situation closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Michigan Department for Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
