It all started with a small bingo hall.

Twenty-one years ago, 789 SmokeShop and Casino was the first legalized gaming establishment in Wyoming with bingo being at the cornerstone. Bingo was a social game that brought in regular players throughout the county who enjoyed its relaxed and friendly environment. The bingo hall brought an employment opportunity to the Wind River Indian Reservation and served as a launch pad for economic development.

In 2005, Vegas style slot machines were introduced to the bingo hall and construction on the Wind River Hotel and Casino began. Today, Wind River is the largest gaming facility in the state with 750 slot machines, 10 table games, two restaurants, a 90 room hotel and so much more.
