The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and Four Winds Casinos® are pleased to announce the recently constructed poker room at Four Winds South Bend® is now open to the public, following a soft opening over Labor Day weekend.
The poker room, which features live dealers, has a total of 10 tables. Games will include $1 - $2 No-Limit Hold’em, $2 - $5 No Limit Hold’em, $3 - $6 Limit Hold’em and $1 - $2 Pot Limit Omaha.
When the announcement was made in July, Chief Operating Officer Frank Freedman said guests have routinely asked for live poker tables. “Now that it’s ready, it’s surpassed our expectations. For fans of the game, the addition of the Poker Room offers something for everyone.”
According to Freedman, poker table games with live dealers fall under the same Class II gaming classification currently offered at Four Winds South Bend.
Media interested in an interview regarding the new poker room or in visiting the property, please contact Melinda Pierce or Jill Klinedinst by calling (574) 257-4332.
