The date has been for August 13, 2020. To either win or donate. Legends Casino Hotel prepares to reopen. With some changes including barries on slot machines and table games for social distancing. Temperature checks and screening before entering the casino. And a change in hours.

Before I entered the casino Legends security guard Art gave me a temperature check and asked me a series of questions to make sure I was healthy enough to go in. The staff members I talked to on the property are very excited to have guests back. I was told that all shows are postponed until further notice. Which is something to look forward to.

I was able to take a tour of Legends to see what was different. From what I saw, plastic barriers were put up at the table games and slot machines. Everything was designed for social distancing. Overall I believe guests should expect a very nice experience. It did kinda feel like I was in a Vegas casino.

Every other slot machine was off or has a barrier for social distancing.

Signs were placed on top of a lot of the slot machines to remind guests it is a smoke-free environment. To also social distance themselves and to wear a face mask. Both guests and employees will be required to wear a face mask. The smoke-free environment is temporary. There will be designated smoking areas outside of the casino

I sat down with General Manager Letisha Peterson. To ask her a few questions about the reopening.  From what the employees are doing to prepare. Since Legends is a tribal casino. Did she and the management staff take a look at what other tribal casinos doing? Check out the interview in the video below.  Make sure to subscribe to the 107.3 KFFM Youtube channel.

Letisha wants to makes sure the public will have a great experience. That all proper protocols are in place. She also mentioned that you do not have to show up on the first date. As employees get re-acclimated.

So please remember as Legends Casino Hotel reopens. Kindness can really go a long way. And of course, practice social distancing. Wear your face mask because it is required.

As mentioned before there some changes. The hours for the casino to be open will be from 10 AM to 2 AM. Both the casino and hotel will open at 50% capacity. Before entering, guests will go through a temperature screening. But overall enjoy the experience. Legends Casino Hotel management and staff are getting ready to say "Welcome Back".
