Responsible Gaming at Four Winds Casinos and Four Winds Online Casino
The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi invites you to play responsibly. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Gambling Disorder Helpline at: 800-270-7117.
To promote responsible gambling, Four Winds Casinos is committed to the prevention of the two most common gambling problems: problem gambling and underage gambling. In addition, for the safety of our guests, we closely monitor alcohol consumption and provide alcohol sensitivity training to appropriate employees and managers and require that those guests deemed to be visibly intoxicated, be removed from the Gaming Floor in an effort to prevent gaming while judgment may be impaired.
Four Winds Casinos defines problem gambling as any gambling behavior negatively impacting the lives of individuals, resulting in serious personal, financial, or legal consequences. Problem gambling may or may not reach the level of compulsive gambling disorder, i.e. gambling addiction.
The following behaviors (or combination of behaviors) may indicate that an individual has a gambling problem:
- Extensive and/or frequent playing sessions, whether rated or not
- Remains in the gaming area without playing or after their bankroll has been exhausted
- Regular credit limit increase requests
- Excessive credit card and/or cash machine use
- Requests to borrow money from other guests and/or staff
- Significant changes in betting pattern
- Losing regard for health and/or hygiene
- Verbal or written statements indicating a gambling problem
Four Winds Casinos employees are trained to recognize the signs of problem gambling and to direct our guests to the resources they made need to seek assistance.
