The Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation of North Dakota debuted its casino yacht just in time for the July 4 holiday.

The 149-passenger yacht will offer gaming and entertainment. Gaming was authorized by the tribe's new Class III gaming compact.

"We're back at the river," Chairman Tex Hall said at the launch of the maiden voyage, referring to the tribe's historic connection to the water, The Minot Daily News reported.

The yacht is part of the 4 Bears Casino and Lodge.
