Four Winds Casino South Bend launches Class III gaming in Indiana
| By Daniel O'Boyle
The Pokagon Band Of Potawatomi Indians has launched Class III gaming – including slot and table games – at its Four Winds South Bend Casino in Indiana.
The Indiana Gaming Commission revealed in September 2019 that the Pokagon Band had opened negotiations on a Class III compact the previous month. This compact was then signed and approved in April of this year, allowing the tribe to offer casino-style games like slots and table gaming.
Under the new compact, the casino now offers 16 table games, including blackjack, roulette, craps and baccarat.
The casino currently offers slot-like electronic bingo games, and operates 1,400 of these machines. It will now upgrade these to full slot machines in a process that it says will “take months to complete”.
