WinnaVegas Casino Resort To Remain ClosedReturn
May 29, 2020
Sloan, Iowa – WinnaVegas Casino Resort announced today that the Casino Resort will remain closed due to concerns over rising COVID-19 cases on the Winnebago Indian Reservation. Although the Casino is located in Sloan, Iowa, many of the casino employees live in Winnebago, Nebraska. The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska oversees and has full authority over WinnaVegas Casino Resort operations. The Winnebago Tribal Council met Friday morning and agreed to keep the entire resort closed until further notice. The Tribal Council is scheduled to reconvene on June 12 and will re-evaluate reopening the Casino Resort at that time.
“This was a tough decision but this is all about protecting the safety and well-being of our employees, guests and surrounding communities,” said WinnaVegas General Manager Mayan Beltran, “We will continue to monitor the data released by local and state public health agencies and will make a decision to reopen when we feel confident that our community as a whole is safe.”
Casino management will continue to utilize social media and their website (www.winnavegas.com) to communicate and inform the public on any new developments.
