Gaming Regulatory Authority
The Mille Lacs Band Gaming Regulatory Authority (GRA) is an independent regulatory agency of tribal government established to separate the government’s regulatory function from the management function. 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.
The next GRA Board meeting is Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 9:00AM via Microsoft Teams.

Call or Text. Contact the Gaming Regulatory Authority if you have questions about your Exclusion from Mille Lacs Band Gaming Enterprises. Any person who has been placed on the Exclusion List may annually petition the GRA for his or her name to be removed from the List.
Temporary Suspension of Exclusion
An exclusion shall not prohibit eligible voters of the Band from entering non-gaming floor areas of a Gaming Enterprise for the purpose of exercising voting rights or attending tribal political or community meetings held in the convention/meeting areas of the Gaming Enterprise, nor shall this prevent Band employees from attending mandatory work-related meetings in the convention/meeting areas of the Gaming Enterprise during work hours. If you are excluded, contact the Gaming Regulatory Authority to request preapproval to enter the Gaming Enterprises or stay in the hotels for extenuating circumstances. These requests are subject to joint approval between the GRA and the gaming operation and are in no way guaranteed. You can email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
