Gun Lake Casino Celebrating Ten Years in the West Michigan Community

February 10, 2021 marks the 10th anniversary for Gun Lake Casino, a premiere entertainment and dining destination in Michigan. The casino has grown throughout the past decade, standing out with a respectful reputation in the casino industry.

“For ten years and counting, we have focused on the most important aspect in the gaming industry – the needs of our guests and team members. We strive to provide a memorable experience for all,” stated Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer for Gun Lake Casino. “This milestone has been achieved through the dedication and devotion of the Gun Lake Tribe, our team members and our loyal guests. We are exceptionally proud of the transformation of our business over the past decade.”

In ten years of operation, there have been incredible giveaways through the casino’s promotions and gaming services, including 184 vehicles, nearly $10 million in bonanza bucks jackpots, and over $577.4 million in jackpots.

To date, the casino offers 156,000 square feet of gaming and additional amenities, including over 2,200 slot machines, 50 table games and a sportsbook. The property also features traditional non-gaming amenities with a 225-seat café, a 300-seat buffet, and multiple bars, lounges, and live entertainment.

Gun Lake Casino has experienced continuous growth and expansion through the past ten years and by the end of the summer, the development of Gun Lake Casino’s $100 million dollar expansion will be complete. The expansion will increase gaming offerings by providing 450 more slot machines, 12 new table games and a larger non-smoking area. In total 72,000 square feet will be added to the existing 156,000 square foot facility.

Gun Lake Casino employs nearly 1,000 team members, including over 100 remaining from day one, making it one of the largest employers in Allegan County. Team members receive a wide array of valued benefits including health coverage, life insurance, paid time off and quarterly bonuses.

As a symbol of the great strides Gun Lake Casino has made to develop an unsurpassed culture within the gaming industry during the past ten years, multiple awards have been earned and received. Most recently, the casino was acknowledged as one of “West Michigan’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®” by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) and selected as the Best Casino by both The Holland Sentinel’s Best of the Best and the Best of The West Revue Reader Poll.
