The purpose of the GRA is to ensure that all gaming activities on Mille Lacs Band land are carried out in compliance with the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, Title 15 of the Mille Lacs Band statutes, tribal and state compacts, the GRA’s Detailed Gaming Regulations (DGR), and all other applicable laws.

Our Mission Statement: Dedicated to providing protection, value, and regulatory excellence in gaming for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.
