A year after announcing plans to build a casino in D'Iberville, additional land has been purchased. The Wind Creek casino project is owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.
Just west of Interstate 110, the site of the former Royal D'Iberville was bought by the tribe in March of last year. Recently more land was purchased in D'Iberville's Back Bay. The additional land will provide the tribe with two potential legal locations for a casino. The total amount of land owned is 34 acres.
It will take about six months to complete research of the local market and talk to focus groups before making any decisions for the proposed casino.
A casino gaming floor of a minimum of 40,000 square feet, restaurants, and a hotel with at least 300 guest rooms are required by the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
The proposed Wind Creek Casino would operate Class III slot machines. The tax rate is 12% of the gaming revenues since the casino would not be located on tribal land. That is the same tax rate that the other casinos in the area pay. The money will go to the area schools, municipality, and the state.

ATMORE, AL - Wind Creek Casino and Hotel has celebrated its first anniversary of operation, and business has been thriving.
The $245 million resort features 57,000 square feet of gaming floor, more than 1,600 Class II gaming machines, a 17-floor, 236-room hotel, four restaurants, and an outdoor amphitheater.
"It's been extremely exciting," said Arthur Mothershed, property manager at the casino. "It's hard to believe that Wind Creek has been open a year already. I am very proud of the team at Wind Creek. Everyone has contributed to a very successful operation."
"As always we hope to do even better in 2010," Mothershed continued. "We have seen growth in our operations despite the downturn in the economy. I attribute our success to the team at Wind Creek. Without their hard work and commitment to guest service it would not have been possible."
"For the first year, we are happy with the accomplishments we achieved at Wind Creek," said Jay Dorris, CEO of gaming for the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. "We will never be satisfied and we look forward to bigger and better things in our second year."

ATMORE, AL - Construction of the hotel tower can be seen by motorists passing by on Interstate 65 as workers set the exterior glass 16 floors high. The new Wind Creek Casino is on schedule to open in January and the luxury hotel will follow in February.
When finished the exterior will feature stone and copper finishes with Indian motifs, while the interior will look and feel like Las Vegas.

The Poarch Creek Tribe would like install Class III gaming, such as blackjack, roulette, craps, and other table games, however, the Alabama governors have historically fought to prevent any gambling beyond Class II gaming which is allowed on reservations by federal law. Class II gaming allows players to play against other players, not against the house. It includes electronic bingo games which can appear nearly indistinguishable from Class III slot machines.
The 16-story hotel includes upscale suites at the top which will cost several hundred dollars per night. Luxury suites over the gaming area will cost $2,000 to $3,000 a night and will overlook the lake or the amphitheater.
When the casino and hotel are completed, the present Poarch Creek Entertainment Center will be replaced by a 5-acre lake and pool and a golf course. Later, when the casino and hotel are financially successful, the tribe plans to double the casino' size and build two more hotel towers.
ATMORE, AL - The Poarch Band of Creek Indians are constructing a new casino and hotel behind the Creek Entertainment Center in Atmore, Alabama, about 50 miles northwest of Pensacola. When finished in 2009, the old building will be dismantled.
The Wind Creek Casino Hotel and Resort will be a $250 million, 16-story bingo palace. Steel girders of the new building can already be seen rising three stories high.
"We are currently still in the planning stages of our expansion," Poarch Creek Tribal Chairman Buford Rolin said. "But we look forward to unveiling our final plans in the next few months and hope the community will attend the official ceremony and share our excitement and optimism about our future endeavors."
The city of Atmore has purchased 650 acres across from the proposed casino for commercial development with hope to boost the local economy.
