Indiana’s Four Winds Casino – South Bend, to launch new slots
Indiana’s tribal South Bend Casino, publicized the launch of a set of brand-new gaming expansions, under a Class III certification.
Under the new Class III license, after years of operating with a Class II certification, the casino establishment will be able to provide Las-Vegas-styled titles, which include classic games such as roulette and blackjack.
During a press interview, Matthew Wesaw – current chair of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Natives, the tribe that owns Four Winds Casino, explained:
“We are excited to see that the newly opened tables are already full, which means we can now healthily compete with the other casino establishments in the scene. That is a crucial thing for our casino.”
Four Winds’ South Bend is presently the only native-american-owned casino in Indiana, which means that the ways in which it operates is also different.
The tribe sent a request for a Class III certification back in 2019, and the formalities are still in the process.
The chairman also added:
“The difference between a Class II and Class III license is that with Class II the casino doesn’t have to pay taxes to the state, while with a Class III license, Four Winds Casino will now be required to pay an 8% tax to Indiana.”
Together with the new table games and slots, the casino also announced a retail sports betting addition, as well as a large gaming floor, as the renovative constructions continue at Four Winds South Bend.
