Four Winds negotiating tribal compact for Indiana betting

12 September 2019

The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, which operates the Four Winds chain of casinos in Indiana and Michigan, has begun negotiations to introduce Class III games, including sports betting, in its South Bend, Indiana venue.

Sports betting was launched in Indiana on September 1, after Governor Eric Holcomb signed the state’s sports betting bill into law in May.

However, while 13 commercial casinos have received authorization from the Indiana Gaming Commission to go live with sports betting, Four Winds — the state’s only tribal casino — would need to negotiate a new compact with the state in order to do so.

Indiana Gaming Commission executive director Sara Gonso Tate told iGB North America that the Pokagon Band requested to begin Class III negotiations on 13 August. A timeline for the launch of Class III games at the casino is not currently known.
