About Four Winds Casinos
The Four Winds Casinos are a group of casinos in the United States. They are in the states of Indiana and Michigan. The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians currently operates as the owner. The main property is in New Buffalo Township, Michigan, and there are also properties in Hartford, Dowagiac, and South Bend, Indiana.
As a recognized tribe by the federal government, the Pokagon Band was able to build Four Winds New Buffalo in New Buffalo Township on the Pokagon Reservation in 2007. It was possible because of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and a compact with Michigan. Four Winds Hartford, a second satellite casino, opened on August 30, 2011, and Four Winds Dowagiac, a third, opened on April 30, 2013.
Pokagon Band could only have three casinos because of a deal it made with the state of Michigan in 2008. Since then, it has built a casino in South Bend, Indiana, on land it said could be used for gambling under certain parts of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.
Back in 2012, the Pokagon Band said it wanted to build this 164-acre "tribal village" with housing, health care, government buildings, and a casino and hotel. On January 16, 2018, Four Winds South Bend opened.
