Wind Creek Hospitality, the Atmore-based gaming group run by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, is proposing a $541 million casino project in Richmond, Virginia.

Wind Creek is proposing a two-phase complex, which will eventually include 100,000 square feet of gaming space (including 2,500 slot machines and 120 table games), two 252-room hotel towers, seven bars and restaurants, spa, indoor pool, fitness center and 67,000-square-foot family-friendly entertainment center.

“Wind Creek Hospitality is excited to be considered for this project,” says Arthur Mothershed, executive vice president of business development and government affairs for Wind Creek. “We operate several regional and destination casino resorts domestically and in the Caribbean and feel that our expertise in gaming, our focus on diversity and strongly partnering with the communities we serve gives us an unmatched edge against our competition.”

Wind Creek operates gaming facilities in Alabama in Atmore, Wetumpka and Montgomery. Elsewhere, they have facilities in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba, Florida and Curacao.
