RAISING UP RICHMOND
WE BUILD MORE THAN CASINOS, WE BUILD COMMUNITIES.
Any gaming company can bring short-term jobs and tax dollars to a community. It’s another thing entirely to be a long-term partner. At Wind Creek Hospitality, that’s how we operate, how we think and how we build: with the long-term in mind. We’re different because we’re committed to our communities, building together, succeeding as one, and sticking around as a partner you can depend on for the long-haul.
A PARTNER YOU CAN COUNT ON
Just like our other property communities, we’ll be there for Richmond, celebrating when times are great and being a partner to rely on in times of challenge. We’ve donated over $1.2 million in COVID-19 relief, while paying more than $42 million in full-time salaries, benefits and payroll tax while we were closed.
This is what we promise: to bring 1,535 Richmond citizens into our Wind Creek family, giving them not only jobs, but opportunities to grow and flourish, with an average yearly salary of more than $51,000.
We’ll build the largest casino floor of any proposal, in a world-class resort that offers the only family friendly entertainment venue with a movie theater, bowling alley and an arcade.
We promise to reinvest in Richmond, because for us, reinvestment is just as important as investment, which is why we’ve reinvested more than $360 million dollars into our resort casino properties, with another $160 million scheduled for 2021.

WHY IS WIND CREEK THE BEST PARTNER FOR RICHMOND?
Only the right partnership will strengthen Richmond for decades to come. That’s the partner we promise to be. You can trust us to deliver on that promise, because it’s the partner we’ve been in every community we serve.
When they came to Bethlehem, we were a little hesitant about a new operator. What we've seen is Wind Creek really cares about our community. Our previous operator was more Vegas-driven.“ ”

I watched very carefully in terms of what type of role minorites play at Wind Creek. And I had a chance to witness what I considered something very unique from my experience with corporate America. We think they're a game changer.“ ”
Wind Creek Employees
Will Wind Creek continue to reinvest in their property and the Richmond community?
When it comes to our communities, we follow our Wind Creek commitment – we maintain top-notch facilities, always look at the long term for our employees, put our communities first and consider reinvestment to be just as important as investment. In the past eight years alone, we've reinvested more than $360 million into our resort casino properties, with another $160 million scheduled for2021. Our conservative financial strategy, for heavily reinvesting profits into property renovations and upgrades is a major reason why we’re one of the most respected brands in the gaming industry, both tribal and state regulated with a gaming portfolio that includes six AAA, four Diamond Casino resortsin Alabama, Pennsylvania and the Caribbean.
We’re in the business to acquire and grow. We don’t sell. So if we’re there with Richmond, we’re going to be a long-time partner.“ ”
