On the heels of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approving the launch of Wind Creek’s real-money online casino on July 24th, the site is live and open for virtual play statewide.
Wind Creek Hospitality, the gaming arm of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, is revealing its online platforms in stages. After this first phase debut will be the introduction of the Wind Creek sports betting offering in partnership with BetFred USA Sports and Scientific Games Corporation, slated to go live later this fall.
Pala Interactive is powering Wind Creek Casino’s real-money online gaming platform in the state of Pennsylvania. As part of the partnership, Pala provides Wind Creek with its online player account management system and real money casino. In addition to the online gaming offering, Wind Creek will be adding Pala content to its existing free-to-play social casino platform.
“Pala Interactive has been a great partner supporting our needs throughout the preparation for this launch. We are impressed by the quality of their online gaming platform, their knowledge and guidance related to all matters necessary to securing regulatory approval, supplier content, payment and other relevant supply agreements. Together we are positioned to deliver our customers a state-of-the-art online gaming experience and we look forward to a long-term and successful relationship,” said Jay Dorris, President & CEO of Wind Creek Hospitality.
The Poarch Band Creek started gaming operations in Alabama, the Tribe’s home state, about a decade ago. Its Wind Creek Hospitality division has been expanding ever since, with Wind Creek Bethlehem in Pennsylvania its largest acquisition yet. Wind Creek Hospitality closed on a deal to buy the casino resort, previously known as the Bethlehem Sands, for $1.3 billion from Las Vegas Sands Corporation on May 30, 2019.
The Poarch Band’s Wind Creek Hospitality brand currently counts 10 properties in its portfolio, including four casino resorts in Alabama and Pennsylvania, a Greyhound racing facility in Alabama, two parimutuel tracks and poker rooms in the Florida panhandle, the Wa She Shu Casino and Travel Plaza in Nevada, and the Renaissance Aruba and Renaissance Curacao Resorts and Casinos in the Caribbean.
