In 2012, the Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe opened the doors to their second casino facility, East Wind Casino. Their first casino, Prairie Wind Casino & Hotel, has proved to be a successful enterprise in providing first-class gaming and entertainment in southwestern South Dakota, and the Tribe wanted to provide an additional option for people to enjoy.
East Wind Casino is located on the east edge of Martin, SD on Highway 18. If you're coming from the east on Highway 18, it's 100 miles from Winner, SD and only 60 miles from Mission, SD. If you're coming from the west on Highway 18, we're just 45 miles west of Pine Ridge, SD.
