New Buffalo, Michigan saw the opening of the world's largest automated poker room yesterday, August 2, as Four Winds Casino and Resort made its grand entry to the land-based casino industry. The new Four Winds Poker Room boasts the introduction of fifteen 10-seat poker tables and four Heads-Up tables, each exclusively powered by PokerPro® technology.

Developed by PokerTek, PokerPro® tables are completely automated, electronic tables permitting poker players to compete against one another without the need for a live dealer. Monitors are placed at each seat, where players may view their cards and execute the various options in a wide range of poker games. A large center monitor proffers community cards, pot size and individual chip stacks.

PokerPro® technology comes complete with Texas Hold'Em, available in Limit and No Limit, as well as Limit and Pot Limit varieties of Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. Single-Table and Multi-Table tournaments may be entered with a range of buy-ins. Players also have the opportunity to win seats in major events.

The technology not only implements 100% accuracy, unlike live dealer tables whop experience the occasional discrepancy disputes from players, it also presents up to a 50% increase in hands played per hour, making for much faster gameplay.

Other features of the new casino establishment include 100 table games, more than 3,000 slot machines, 165 hotel rooms, 6 restaurants and 5 bars. Officially opened August 2, 2007, Four Winds Casino and Resort is owned by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, under the management of Lakes Entertainment.
