Long gone are the days when the gambling meccas of Las Vegas and Atlantic City held exclusive rights over heart-pumping casino action. Home to some of the hottest casinos around, Oklahoma ups the ante with big name stars, state-of-the-art machines and the enthusiastic energy of an industry on the rise.
Kickapoo Casino’s first location is located in Harrah at the intersection of Highway 102 and 62. With the success of the Harrah location, the Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma has expanded their operations with the opening of their second location in Shawnee, just 30 minutes east of the metro. The new casino, which is phase I of a multi-phase project, is home to over 300 machines and includes a full bar and snack shop featuring tasty bites such as nachos, hot dogs, sliders and more. Phase II begins is scheduled to begin in 2013 with construction starting on the main casino building and full service hotel.
Visitors who are new to Oklahoma gaming have lots of choices around the metro area. Understanding why they are - where they are involves a history lesson. Oklahoma casinos are operated by Native American Tribes under a compact with the State of Oklahoma. In 2004, Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly approved a new compact with Oklahoma tribes which catapulted Indian gaming into the Class III “big leagues.” The casinos must be located on allotted land. Under the compacts, tribes pay “exclusivity fees” to the state from their Class III gaming revenues, and those fees are specifically earmarked for state educational purposes.
Kickapoo Casino Harrah and Shawnee will feature similar reward styles and programs which Oklahoman's have come to enjoy. The boutique casino atmosphere of Kickapoo Casino Harrah and the unique architectural design and artistic elements create a comfortable environment and ambiance unlike any other. Kickapoo Casino Shawnee will create a similar ambiance but create a pleasant breath of fresh air from the typical casino atmospheres.
In addition to gaming, Kickapoo Casino Harrah offers the perfect venue for entertainment, The Eaglerock Lounge. When you want to take a break from the casino action, enjoy one of the most exciting and intriguing atmospheres in Oklahoma. The lounge offers a full service bar and wait staff that will serve you the perfect drink every time. The Eagle Rock Lounge also features live entrainment on almost every weekend and shows the “big game” on dozens of the flat screens and the massive 133” big screen! Raise your dining expectations when you visit Redfork, a unique restaurant with distinct offerings, located just off the casino floor. Redfork offers a casual environment where you can enjoy delectable cuisines ranging from quick bites to fine dining.
