With the health and safety of our guests, team members and the community at the forefront of our decision-making process, the Tulalip Gaming Organization (Tulalip Resort Casino, Quil Ceda Creek Casino and Tulalip Bingo & Slots) will remain temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Governor Jay Inslee's order to "Stay Home, Stay Safe."
This is a unique crisis impacting all of us and conditions have evolved on an almost daily basis. For this reason, we have extended our team members’ base wages and benefits another week. We will continue to monitor the situation - including local, state and national guidelines - before determining a date for re-opening all three properties.
We look forward to re-opening our doors and welcoming back our team members and guests. We understand that the past few weeks have been full of challenges for all of us, and we appreciate the support we’ve received from our guests and team members. We will work together to overcome this, and we will all emerge stronger. We want to let you know that when the time is right and you’re ready, we’ll be ready.
We also realize that during this uncertain time, many of our guests are wondering about how this temporary shutdown will impact their promotions, offers and benefits. We are dedicated to taking the necessary actions to ensure your ONE club membership provides the offers, rewards and benefits you’ve come to expect from us. Below are a few of the steps we are taking to make that happen:
- If you receive any Free Slot Play, Match Play and hotel offers that are valid during the time we are closed, please be assured that new, similar offers will be available to you when we reopen.
- We understand the importance of your ONE club status level and that the current earning period was impacted by this shutdown. Because of that, we will grandfather your status through the next period of evaluation.
- Birthday offers issued during the closure period will be extended. We'll let you know more specific details after a later date.
- We are making plans to extend any expiring Free Play and comps during the affected months. Once we resume daily operations, please bring cash-out vouchers with an expiration date during the closure to the casino cashier for review.
We’ll continue to stay connected and provide you with regular communication. You can find those updates on our websites. Please visit these pages often and check your email inbox for important updates and information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We wish you good health and well-being.Download the PDF

We commend Governor Inslee’s leadership and his response to the Coronavirus pandemic. In this case, the Tulalip Tribes were already in the process of developing a plan for closure to protect the health of our guests, tribal members, team members and our community at large. The Tulalip Gaming Organization (Tulalip Resort Casino, Quil Ceda Creek Casino and Tulalip Bingo & Slots) has made the decision to temporarily close our three properties effective at 6PM today.
We don’t take this decision lightly. We know it will impact the lives of our team who work so hard to create the world-class experience our guests enjoy at our properties. To that end, we will provide our team members with their regular base pay and benefits through March 30, 2020.
We are saddened by the hardship this places on our team members, who we view as part of our extended Tulalip family. Family is at the core of our tribal heritage. There is much about this unique crisis that is unknown. We are resilient and we will lean on one another to get us through.
In the not so distant future, we know we will be ready to welcome the thousands of guests who come to our facilities every day to be served by the most amazing employees in the industry. In the meantime, we will remain in contact with tribal leaders, the Tulalip emergency management team and Snohomish County emergency personnel.Download the PDF
