Lucky Eagle Casino: The Chehalis Tribe Actively Promotes Both Community and Individual Success!
With a menu that highlights everything from filet mignon burgers and T-bone steak to a full range buffet at budget pricing, it’s no wonder the Lucky Eagle Casino and Hotel always looks like a party. Additionally, when celebrations are planned for their 17th Anniversary, even Randy Travis is invited.
Even though Travis concert tickets are already sold out, other community events are planned throughout the month to continue their anniversary celebrations. Visitors can expect to enjoy weekly slot tournaments in addition to their regular gaming and dining options. The popularity of Lucky Eagle has continued to grow and is obvious by their expanded lodging which went from 69 to 162 newly completed guest rooms.
It takes a lot of people to provide an amazing customer experience, and nearly 700 associates are employed at the Lucky Eagle Casino, according to Chief Executive Officer John Setterstrom. Setterstrom gets the most personal satisfaction from watching associates in their personal and professional development, and enjoying the action and excitement on the casino floor, “particularly when a player wins and you see them throw their hands up in the air and run around the casino screaming”, he said.
“The Chehalis Tribe actively promotes both community and individual success,” said Setterstrom, who helped launch Lucky Eagle Casino with Tribe in 1995. “There are so many philanthropic events we support,” he said, as he quickly recalled the generosity of the associates in raising $50 thousand for the United Way, and donating funds after Hurricane Katrina and the events of September 11th.
Lucky Eagle invests back into the local community by serving on boards that are doing great things for individuals, businesses, and the economy. Setterstrom and the casino vice presidents are actively involved in many charitable organizations. “Giving back to the community is essential,” he said.
Whether someone is looking for gaming excitement or they simply want to enjoy a memorable meal and relax at Eagles Landing Hotel, their experience begins at Lucky Eagle Casino, located just 7 miles west of exit 88 in Rochester.
