A little bit about us:

A team of three licensing employees (Licensing Agent, Background Investigator and Licensing Assistant) work closely together to ensure that the licensing process is as smooth as possible and to ensure that applications are processed as quickly as possible.

These three employees will take all necessary steps to maintain the honesty, integrity, fairness, and security of the gaming operation. One of the steps in the licensing process is to conduct a background investigation on all Chinook Winds employees and vendors as applicable. Conducting investigations shall assist in preventing theft, cheating and to protect the gaming operation from the influence or control by form of criminal activity or organization. These steps will also assist in ensuring the employees meet all applicable laws for obtaining a gaming license.
