Gun Lake Casino

Gun Lake Casino made its presence felt throughout West Michigan in 2021 in more ways than one. 

It made headlines when it became the new name-in-title sponsor of one of the most recognizable entertainment venues in Grand Rapids. Formerly known as 20 Monroe Live, Gun Lake Casino attached its name to the venue when it was renamed GLC Live at 20 Monroe. 

The casino also launched an online casino platform called Play Gun Lake. It offers visitors an array of online slots and table games accessible from anywhere in the state, including classic slots, video slots, progressive jackpot slots, blackjack, roulette and baccarat.

Along with the new gaming opportunities, the casino now offers new entertainment and dining options after the completion of its expansion project. The casino now spans 229,000 square feet with three new restaurants: SHKODÉ Chophouse, CBK and 131 Sportsbar & Lounge.

Gun Lake Casino President and COO Sal Semola also ensured that the casino gave back to the community in a more personal way.

The Gun Lake Tribe and Gun Lake Casino made financial donations to the Wayland Fire Department that allowed it to purchase an EFORCE 17c-SL3 combination cutter and spreader, a small, battery-operated cutter.

The equipment allows the department to perform different types of forced entry, vehicle extrication and farm-related emergencies.

“Gun Lake Casino is committed to helping our local first responders and departments in any way possible,” said Semola. “The donation of funds for this tool further exemplifies our dedication to making our local community a safer place.”
