MATTHEWS, North Carolina -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Four Winds Casino Resort, in New Buffalo, Michigan, opened the world's largest automated poker room today, running exclusively on PokerTek (NASDAQ: PTEK) poker tables.

The Four Winds Poker Room features fifteen PokerPro® 10-seat tables and four PokerPro Heads-Up tables.

The Four Winds property, which opened on August 2nd, is owned by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and managed by Lakes Entertainment. Four Winds has over 3,000 slot machines, 100 table games, 6 restaurants, 5 bars and 165 hotel rooms in addition to the 19-table poker room.

"Four Winds is committed to delivering the best gaming and entertainment experience possible and PokerPro is part of that commitment," said Matt Harkness, Four Winds Casino Resort General Manager. "We are proud to open this state-of-the-art, all-PokerPro poker room."

"The Pokagon Band has been an ideal partner for PokerTek's largest installation to date," said Lou White, PokerTek's Chief Executive Officer. "Their commitment to electronic poker is phenomenal, as evidenced by the size and quality of their new poker room. PokerTek is pleased to be working with an operator whose dedication to making this room a success is only rivaled by their desire to exceed player's expectations by offering such a broad range of game offerings, tournament schedules and major tournament satellite events."

The room will offer Limit and No Limit Texas Hold'em cash games, Limit and Pot Limit Omaha Hi and Hi/Lo cash games, and Single and Multi-Table tournaments with a variety of buy-ins. Players can also play to win seats into major events and compete in heads-up tournaments on one of the four PokerPro Heads-Up tables.

"We're going to offer the best action in the region," said Harkness. "Our tournament schedule is second to none, our games are all reasonably priced and playing on PokerPro gives players more action with fewer hassles and distractions."

PokerPro® is an electronic poker table that allows players to compete against each other in live poker. Players use their individual touch-screen to view their cards, call, raise or fold, while viewing the pot, community cards, and players chip stacks on the large center display. Players will notice that the games are fast with a 50% increase in the hands dealt every hour when compared to a manual poker table, as well as total accuracy and social interaction among players.
