On June 14, 2012, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians (Tribe) announced that the Pokagon Township Board had voted in favor of plans to build a second satellite casino in Dowagiac, Michigan.  The consent of Pokagon Township is required by the state of Michigan in order for the Tribe to proceed with their plans to build Four Winds Dowagiac.

“Four Winds Dowagiac is the next step in the continued economic development of the Pokagon Band and will build upon the tremendous success of our locations in New Buffalo and Hartford, Michigan,” said Matt Wesaw, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians.  “100 new jobs will be created to support the casino and there will also be a significant number of people working during construction.”

Four Winds Dowagiac is scheduled to open in 2013 and will include 200 slot machines, four table games, and a 3,000 square foot multi-use space and restaurant.   Its appearance will be similar to the Tribe’s existing casinos, the Four Winds Casinos in New Buffalo and Hartford, Michigan.

Additionally, Four Winds Casino announced that the Hard Rock Café at Four Winds New Buffalo will open on Wednesday, July 11, at 11:00 a.m. 

“We are thrilled to bring Hard Rock Café, one of the world’s most iconic brands, to our guests at Four Winds New Buffalo,” said Mr. Wesaw.

The 12,000 square foot Hard Rock Café Four Winds will span two floors and include seating for over 275 guests.  The restaurant will also feature a live music stage and rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia.
