Tulalip Bingo and Slots hall set to reopen next week

The bingo and slot machine parlor closed in late March. When it resumes, masks will be required.

TULALIP — People could soon holler “Bingo!” in Tulalip again.

The Tulalip Bingo and Slots hall is set to reopen next Wednesday, July 22, almost four months after closing because of public health concern over the new coronavirus, The Tulalip Tribes said in a news release Tuesday. But there are new rules.

As with the Tulalip Tribes’ other casinos, bingo hall guests must properly wear a face covering and receive a no-touch temperature check. Bingo sessions are limited to 300 players, who should be 6 feet apart from each other unless they’re from the same household.

New temporary hours are noon to midnight, with bingo sessions at 1 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. The deli will be open. Free Play and comps with expiration dates during the closure will be extended.

During the closures, almost 3,000 of the tribes’ 3,700 employees were furloughed, Tulalip Chairwoman Teri Gobin said in May.

The Tulalip Tribes’ larger gambling venues, Quil Ceda Creek Casino and Tulalip Resort Casino, reopened in late May. When their doors opened, hundreds of people showed up to see if luck landed their way.
