BATTLE CREEK - The FireKeepers Casino had a soft opening today after a ten year quest to bring the casino to Emmett Township. The exact opening date was not announced in advance as the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi held to an "early August" opening. The past few days of testing the operations with invited guest proved the casino was ready for the public. So this morning at 10 a.m. the casino executives held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and photo opportunity for the press.

About 500 local people showed up for the opening after hearing rumors in the early morning that the casino was opening.

"We're happy to see it open on-time, under budget and without injury," said Laura Spurr, the Tribal Chairperson.

The FireKeepers is a $300 million casino with 236,000 square feet and 2,680-slot machines, 78 table games, a 120-seat poker room and a bingo hall. For more information visit our FireKeepers Casino page.
