As part of Seneca Resorts & Casinos phased opening plans, Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino will open to the public at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 25. Temporary hours of operation at this stage are 10 a.m. until 2 a.m. daily.
Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino will open with strict protocols in place to protect the health and safety of guests and team members alike, including limited slot machines, no table games, and minimal food and beverage service and seating to promote social distancing.
Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino phased opening will begin the following week, on Thursday, July 2.
Before arriving, guests are encouraged to visit SenecaBuffaloCreekCasino.com for “What You Need To Know Before You Go,” “Frequently Asked Questions” and a “message from Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino.” The enhanced safety measures include protocols for social distancing, disinfecting measures, facemask requirement, and wellness screenings for both team members and guests.
Highlights of this phase of reopening include:
√ All guests must be 21 years of age or older. No one under 21 will be admitted.
√ Patrons are asked to use the valet entrance to enter the casino or enter from the parking garage.
√ Every guest and team member must go through the wellness checkpoint (temperature screening). Anyone exhibiting symptoms associated with COVID-19 will be denied entry that day. Anyone registering 100.4 or above temperature will pass through a secondary screening. If the second screening registers a temperature of 100.4 or above, guest and/or team member will be denied entry that day. All temperature screenings will be done with a safe social distance through thermal imaging screeners.
√ Facemasks will be mandatory for both guests and team members and must be worn at all times while on property. No mask, no entry. If one doesn’t have a facemask, one may be provided.
√ Every guest and team member must use hand sanitizer before entering.

√ There is no smoking anywhere inside the resort. Smoking will be allowed only in outdoor designated areas and with social distancing. Any guest who goes outside to smoke must go through the wellness checkpoint upon reentering the building.
