Their gift shop is a very good shop to visit through. You can find shirts, jackets, small and larger gifts. You can also buy snacks, soda, and cigarettes.

Fire Keeper’s Club Card
They have a club card where when you use it when you play slots, bingo, and table games you will earn points. Everyone starts with a red card when they sign up for the card. The more you use the card and accumulate enough points during six months (depends on the points you earned) will promote you to either a silver or a black card. All cards have some benefits to them. Each level has more than the one before it.
You can also use those points for spending on things like paying for bingo, for food in one of their restaurants, and their gift shop. Those points are used as full value when you use them in these areas (for example 1000 points equals $10.00). But when you are at the slot machines they are used as half value (for example 1000 points equals $5.00).
Expansion With A Hotel

Even though the Potawatomi Bingo Casino is a very nice place to go play, eat and go see acts at the theater you got to know your limits. When you go only play with a limit in mind and stick to it. Or in this way only bring a set amount of money that you are willing to lose when you go. And when you do win a nice size amount and you still want to play that is fine. But put the extra winnings aside in a different place where you that you will not touch it and only play with the original amount that you came with to lose, so when you leave you to come ahead when you do win something. And if you don’t win at least it will be the set amount that you set yourself with to lose.
