Per a press release  dated January 2, 2018, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and its Four Winds Casinos are pleased to announce their newest property, Four Winds South Bend. This will be the first casino in the state of Indiana owned and operated by a Native American tribe. The new casino is located on 166 acres of tribal trust land on South Bend’s southwest side at 3300 Prairie Road near the US 31/20 bypass. The Four Winds South Bend casino will open to the public on Tuesday, January 16 at 4 p.m.

“This property will be an entertainment destination that complements our Four Winds brand,” said Frank Freedman, COO of Four Winds Casinos. “From the moment we began construction, we did so with the full support and cooperation from the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), our local, county and state governments, and most importantly, from the community. We are proud of the coordinated efforts of all of our partners in construction to keep us moving forward.”

The tribe says the 175,000 square foot casino will have about 1,800 games, four restaurants, three bars and employ about 1,200 people.

“When we broke ground in December 2016, we did so knowing we’ll have a significant economic impact on the region,” said John P. Warren, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. “Once operating, it will generate revenue to fund services and programs that will create additional economic opportunities for Pokagon Citizens, the city of South Bend, and also fund community projects, local organizations and schools.

The casino shares the Four Winds brand with the other Pokagon casino locations including New Buffalo, Hartford and Dowagiac, Michigan.
