Correction: Earlier, we cited the South Bend Tribune’s report that there won’t be table games because of failed negotiations with former Gov. Mike Pence’s administration. This is incorrect and we have removed that information from this story. We apologize for any misunderstanding.
Progress at the new Four Winds Casino in South Bend is going so smoothly, job fairs have begun to pop up.
The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians told the South Bend Tribune that they hope to finish the casino on the southwest side of South Bend by early next year. They hope to hire 1,200 people to fill mostly hospitality positions.
Four job fairs have been announced in South Bend:
- July 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Jackson Middle School
- Aug. 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Four Winds Field
- Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Jackson Middle School
- Oct. 3 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Century Center
In addition, 300 temporary construction jobs have been created as construction continues on the casino.
The casino will feature slot and video machines, but no table games as it will be a Class 2 facility. There also won’t be a hotel, night club, or event center like their New Buffalo location has, but those could be added later.
