The grand opening of the new Choctaw Nation casino resort took place on the final week of May 2024 and was welcomed by over 300 customers.

It was unveiled by Chief Gary Batton of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, as he cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony – which was supported with dancers and singers.

The opening ceremony was also full of traditional Choctaw activities, which were welcomed by the 300 visitors in attendance.

Additionally, the new casino resort in Oklahoma has a large gaming space with around 600 slot machines/online casino games and eight new table games.

There are also some elite resort services, including conference sections, a pool opening, concert nights and cultural entertainment which will begin in the near future.

Alongside an elite casino set-up, there are 100 guest rooms with 15 suites, three new conference rooms, an elite restaurant and a meeting space that is over 4,300 square feet – which has a gym, pool, two hot tubs and three fire pits.

Chief Batton spoke about the new casino resort and how it signifies a great step in combining the Choctaw culture with Oklahoma residents.

Batton said (Via Choctaw Nation Oklahoma): “Any time you can bring our culture and our history together, along with economic development for our Tribal members and the citizens of this area, it’s a great day.

“We broke ground down here two years ago, and to see our grand opening today and all the things we’re going to be able to bring to McCurtain County, it’s exciting.

“I love that we’re seeing our culture and history displayed here and that it’s an economic boost to this area. Hopefully people will learn about Choctaw Nation here more than ever before.”
