SOUTH BEND -

The state's newest casino is slated to open January 16. Four Winds South Bend is the signature piece of a $400 million tribal village and entertainment project from the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. Work on the casino, which is the fourth Four Winds-branded property, began just over two years ago.

It is located on 166 acres of tribal trust land in Saint Joseph County and is expected to employ around 1,200. Band Chairman John Warren says "when we broke ground in December 2016, we did so knowing we'll have a significant economic impact on the region. 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. Our commitment to our tribal citizens, children and families of this region is our greatest priority. From the moment of the groundbreaking and beyond when the casino opens in January, the benefits will multiply."

The casino will feature 1,800 games, four restaurants, three bars, players lounge, coffee shop and some 4,500 parking spaces. The other Four Winds Casinos are located nearby in Michigan.
