About Four Winds Casino New Buffalo in MI

Four Winds Casino New Buffalo opened in 2007 and was the first of four gambling operations launched by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. The Band has since launched two other satellite facilities in Michigan (in Hartford and Dowagiac), and one in South Bend, IN.

Plans for casino construction began in May 1996, with a total construction cost of $180 million. Four Winds New Buffalo also underwent a major renovation in 2011, which added 250 hotel rooms and a multi-purpose facility to the venue (which opened in 2012).

In 2015, USA Today named Four Winds Casino New Buffalo as one of the 10 best U.S. casinos outside of Las Vegas.

Four Winds Casino runs a rewards program called the W♣ Players Club, where players can earn rewards points based on the length of time they play and the size of their bet. Program perks can include free slot play, dining discounts, access to the Players Lounge, expedited cashier service, shopping discounts, and more.

The massive gaming floor houses more than 3,000 slot machines, as well as an ample selection of table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette, and pai gow.
