Kambi Group plc, the leading global sports betting supplier, is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi’s Four Winds Casinos. Four Winds Casinos has three locations in Michigan and one location in Indiana.
Four Winds is consistently ranked as one of the top gaming and entertainment brands in the Midwest. Its flagship property, Four Winds New Buffalo, which has also received recognition as one of the top resorts in the United States, is located in New Buffalo, Michigan and offers approximately 125,000 square feet of gaming with more than 2,400 slot machines, 48 table games, five restaurants, the 17,000 square feet multi-use Silver Creek Event Center, retail venues, a pool, and a 415-room hotel.
Following a competitive tender process, Kambi was selected by Four Winds Casinos for its high-quality on-property and online product, a strong regulatory and compliance record, and its position as the independent sports betting technology partner trusted by operators and regulators alike in the United States.
Kambi’s on-property offering and unmatched track record of successful delivery have been central to the provider’s progress in the US regulated market, with its kiosks and unique Bring Your Own Device technology transforming the way people choose to bet.
Kristian Nylén, Kambi’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are very proud to be entering this partnership with the Pokagon Band and its Four Winds Casinos. They are a leading operator in the Midwest and share our commitment to providing customers with consistently engaging experiences.
“Kambi has established itself as the trusted partner to Tribal casino gaming enterprises that wish to leverage the strength of their brand to truly capitalise on the sports betting opportunity, and we are excited to be supporting Four Winds as they look to fulfil their online and on-property ambitions.”
Frank Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Gaming Operations for Four Winds Casinos, said: “We are excited to partner with Kambi to bring sports betting to Four Winds Casinos and take the gaming experience we offer guests to the next level.
“We look forward to announcing the details of the sports betting options we will offer at our Michigan locations in the near future.”
Kambi is set to install its suite of on-property sports wagering products in Four Winds’ casino locations in New Buffalo, Dowagiac and Hartford, Michigan, with an online launch to follow.
This agreement sees the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi become the third major tribal nation to choose Kambi to power its online and on-property sports betting ambitions, with Seneca Gaming Corporation and Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment having partnered with Kambi in 2019.
Kambi recently achieved its latest market first in the US, processing the first legal online wager in Illinois with Rush Street Interactive.
