Four Winds Casino Hartford

Four Winds Casino Hartford is an 18,000-square-foot tribal casino located approximately 2.5 miles west of downtown Hartford, Michigan. The casino is owned and run by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, whose tribal recognition was restored by President Bill Clinton in September 1994.

Four Winds Casino Hartford is one of four casino venues owned by the tribe, with other properties located in New Buffalo, Michigan; Dowagiac, Michigan; and South Bend, Indiana. The casino is home to over 450 slot machines and seven table games, including heads-up poker games such as Mississippi Stud Progressive.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board authorized the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and its partner Pala Interactive in 2021 to launch online sportsbooks and casinos in Michigan. This made Four Winds Casino the 11th provider of both online casino gaming and sports betting in the Wolverine State.

Earlier in 2020, the Four Winds Casino Hartford partnered with Kambi to set up a retail sportsbook on the premises, as did all properties under the brand.

You must be at least 21 years old to visit Four Winds Casino in Hartford Michigan and gamble in the casino.
