In Michigan, the Pokagon Band Of Potawatomi Indians has completed an expansion project at its Four Winds Casino Resort Dowagiac with the facility now offering an additional 2,700 sq ft of gaming space as well as an exclusive entrance and 70 parking spaces for certain members of its loyalty program.

According to a report in the South Bend Tribune newspaper, the new area at the casino in the south-western corner of the state is to be used to house 70 additional slots alongside a pair of gaming tables.

“The expansion of Four Winds Casino Resort Dowagiac not only demonstrates the success of our Four Winds Casinos but also our continued economic development, which is responsible for providing important services to Pokagon citizens including housing, education, family services, medical care and cultural preservation,” read a late-April statement released by John Warren, Chairman for the Pokagon Band Of Potawatomi Indians.

One of three casinos in the Four Winds Casinos chain operated by the tribe in Michigan, Four Winds Casino Resort Dowagiac now offers a portfolio of 370 slots along with seven table games and a Timbers restaurant that can seat approximately 30 people. The Cass County venue opened in April of 2013 and moreover features a non-smoking area offering 20 slots.

“This expansion is a direct response to players who have asked for more games at Four Winds Casio Resort Dowagiac,” said Frank Freedman, Chief Operating Officer for Four Winds Casinos. “We are also pleased to extend exclusive benefits to our Copper Members through a private entrance and parking area.”
