Poarch Band of Creek Indians acquires two gaming properties on Caribbean islands

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians continues to expand its gaming empire beyond the tribe's homelands in Alabama.

Wind Creek Hospitality, the tribe's gaming and entertainment arm, recently acquired two gaming properties on islands in the Caribbean. The Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino is located in Oranjestad, Aruba, and the Renaissance Curacao Resort and Casino is located in Willemstad, Curacao.

"We are thrilled to add these incredible properties to our Wind Creek portfolio," Chair Stephanie Bryan said in a press release. "We look forward to being part of the communities in Aruba and in Curacao."

Wind Creek operates three gaming facilities on the tribe's reservation in Alabama. Additionally, the tribe operates commercial racetracks in Alabama and Florida, and manages a casino in Nevada for the Washoe Tribe.
