Four Winds South Bend To Open This Month


From the Associated Press — A Native American tribe is set to open its first Indiana casino to join three it already operates in southwest Michigan. The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi announced Tuesday that the Four Winds South Bend casino will open to the public
on January 16. It will be Indiana’s first tribal casino. The tribe says the casino will have about 1,800 games, four restaurants, three
bars and employ about 1,200 people. The new casino is on South Bend’s southwest side, near the U.S. 31/20 bypass. A study for the Casino Association of Indiana estimates the tribal casino will cut Indiana’s tax revenue by more $350 million in its first five years because
it will reduce business at the state’s other casinos and won’t pay state gambling taxes.
