RIVERTON — After a thwarted first attempt in mid-July, the Wind River Hotel and Casino and Little Wind Casino just south of Riverton opened Friday morning.

Owned by the Northern Arapaho Tribe, both casinos had planned to reopen July 22 but were unable due to the persistence of a COVID-19 stay-at-home order issued by both the Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone Business Councils this spring.
