Casinos shut down operations for almost three months because of the threat of the virus. Investors saw revenue significantly declining as states impose stay-at-home protocols. Gamblers were stuck at home, unable to visit gambling venues.
Prolonged government coronavirus measures resulted in unprecedented losses for many casinos. Operators continued paying wages of employees and paying rents while the lockdowns were implemented. Thousands of workers lost their jobs while the casinos are in lockdown.

Some leaders of the states are opposing the reopening of the casinos, warning people that the threat of the coronavirus still lures in the region. However, states’ power over the autonomous tribal areas is limited. Tribes reopened despite opposition from leaders arguing their sovereignty.

Eldorado opened the business in Missouri, Iowa, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
