On Wednesday, October 2, 2013, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians (“Tribe”) presented the Pokagon-Dowagiac Area Local Revenue Sharing Board (“LRSB”) with a check in the amount of $183,014.07. The payment represents two percent of the annual revenue from the Tribe’s electronic gaming machines at the Four Winds Dowagiac.

The LRSB is established through the Tribe’s Gaming Compact with the State of Michigan and consists of representatives from the Tribe, Cass County, City of Dowagiac, and other local governing bodies. In accordance with the compact, two percent of the net win from electronic games of chance for each of the Tribe’s Four Winds Casinos is allocated to the LRSB for distribution to the local area. The funds are distributed to local units of government to offset costs related to police, fire, and public safety services, as well as contribute to local schools and other community services.

The Tribe opened the Four Winds Dowagiac on April 30, 2013, and it is the Tribe’s third casino property in the state. In addition, the Tribe operates the Four Winds Casino Resort in New Buffalo, Michigan, and the Four Winds Casino in Hartford, Michigan. According to the Michigan Gaming Control Board, the Tribe has made over $38 Million in local revenue sharing payments for its casino properties between August 2007 and July 2013.
