US.- The Gun Lake Casino in Michigan has handed out over $611,000 in bonuses to employees this month.

The casino, which is owned by the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, said in a press release that the bonuses were “a token of gratitude for the essential role each employee has played in making Gun Lake Casino the best location to work for in West Michigan.”

With around 1,000 workers, Gun Lake is one of the largest employment providers in the area.

Since 2011, the company has handed out over $16.4m to employees through its bonus programme.

Having recently added a Stage 131 sportsbook and lounge to its facilities, the casino continues to grow and has promised additional job opportunities.

Meanwhile, three casinos on the Las Vegas strip announced further lay-offs last month due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
