Most US casinos have been closed since mid-March, and players are as a result understandably excited about being able to once again enjoy in-person gaming and entertainment at some of their favourite casinos and gaming halls.

New Rules Now Apply

A new set of rules has however been implemented at Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. Changes have been made in such a way so as to ensure the safety of guests as well as employees as far as what is practically considered possible. The wearing of face masks by players as well as casino staff has now been declared mandatory. Those players for whatever reason not in possession of a mask will on arrival be provided with one complimentary of the casino.

All guests are upon arrival requested to pass through a mandatory wellness ‘checkpoint’. Players will at this checkpoint be provided with masks, have their hands sanitized, and also their temperatures checked. Only once the temperature all-clear is received, are players allowed into the actual building. This is to ensure not only the safety of the employees, but also of all fellow patrons entering into the casino and resort.

Guests will furthermore no longer be permitted to smoke inside the casino building. A specially designated outside smoking area will be in use for an undisclosed period of time expected to last at least a couple of weeks following the reopening date. This is yet again to ensure the ongoing good health and safety of everyone entering the casino and surrounding resort. 

Limits On Numbers, No Alcohol

Players have also been advised that occupancy will for a time be limited to a pre-specified number of people being present in the casino at any given time. Furthermore, no alcohol will be served until such time as New York State has entered into its next phase of re-opening of the local economy.

Reduced opening hours now apply and will limit casino playtime to between 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. Physical distancing rules will be enforced all throughout, which will in turn lead to only every third slot machine being in operation.

The next phase in the reopening process is expected to commence on July 2nd.

Online casinos are ALWAYS open! Play ANY time.
