Talks Planned For Increased Gaming In Indiana Tribal Casino

Indiana authorities are to begin negotiating with a Native American tribe on enabling extended gambling at their South Bend casino.

Last month, the Michigan-based Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians told Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb to open talks on an arrangement to potentially add live table games such as roulette and blackjack, as well as sports betting at their Four Winds South Bend Casino.

The casino opened in January 2018 but without a government contract under federal legislation. is restricted to digital games and a poker room. The tribe already has such an arrangement in place for its three casinos in Michigan.

Sara Gonso Tait, Indiana Gaming Commission, informs the South Bend Tribune that the negotiating commission of the state has not yet been appointed and has refused to comment on a timeframe for the discussions.
