Gun Lake Casino Extends Closure Until Further Notice

The top priority for Gun Lake Casino remains the health and safety of our guests and team members – and the best interest of this community is at the core of every thought-out decision made.

“We have been working quickly to adapt to the growing Coronavirus pandemic. It is important for us to remain in touch with our guests, team members, and our entire community, especially now during these uncertain times.  To prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to support Governor Whitmer’s original directive and extend our voluntary short-term closure until further notice,” said Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer for Gun Lake Casino. “We will be placing certain team member groups on a short-term furlough to navigate through the financial impact caused by the pandemic.  Additionally, we will be temporarily reducing the base salary of key members of management and the entire executive team. Gun Lake Casino team members are family and this was a very difficult decision.”

Gun Lake Casino was also the first casino in the state to provide full compensation and benefits to team members for one month during the short-term closure – a tremendous display of compassion and generosity by the Gun Lake Tribal Gaming Authority and commitment to our team members.

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).

All casino events, including promotions, free play offers, and dining offers are postponed and Gun Lake Casino will reopen to provide the ultimate entertainment experience in West Michigan as soon as it is safe.

All updates regarding Gun Lake Casino’s schedule to reopen will be posted on the Gun Lake Casino website (www.gunlakecasino.com) and on social media accounts.
