As announced in a recent press release, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians recently held a press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony to announce that the Four Winds® Casinos in South Bend, Indiana was pleased to unveil its new Class III gaming amenities. 

Matthew Wesaw, Tribal Council Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and CEO of the Pokagon Gaming Authority, said, “Not only is Class III gaming in Indiana a historic and important milestone for the Pokagon Band and our Four Winds Casinos, but the expansion of Four Winds South Bend will create numerous additional economic benefits with the State of Indiana and the City of South Bend.  We’ve also created hundreds of temporary constructions jobs, approximately 100 permanent new jobs to support our ongoing operations, and an education program for our Pokagon Citizens to attend state funded institutions of higher education, including 2- and 4-year colleges, plus trade/vocational schools with all expenses covered.  It’s a great day to be Pokagon and we are very excited for what the future holds.”   

Commenting on the Class III gaming amenities, Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Officer of Four Winds Casinos said, “Four Winds Casinos have consistently been ranked among the best gaming destinations in the country and we believe the addition of table games and popular Class III slot titles, combined with our 23-story hotel tower and several other amenities currently under construction, will bring the guest experience at Four Winds South Bend to another level and deliver on the premium resort-style feel and amenities you’ll find at other top resorts including Four Winds New Buffalo.  We are very excited for this next phase of development and appreciate all the hard work and dedication of all Four Winds employees to help us reach this important milestone.  We are excited and can’t wait to show everyone the finished product once construction is complete.”

With the announcement, Four Winds South Bend now offers 16 table games.  They are currently in the process of installing many popular Class III slot titles with some of the most popular games already available.  The process of converting all of Four Winds South Bend’s 1,400 plus slot machines to Class III will take several months to complete. 

Four Winds South Bend currently has 140,000 square feet of gaming space and includes more than 1,400 games, four restaurants, a coffee shop, three bars, and approximately 4,500 parking spaces including an enclosed parking structure.
