Caesars to Run Tribal Casino near Tulsa, Oklahoma
The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma is partnering with Caesars Entertainment to establish a new casino resort. Strategically positioned between Tulsa and Oklahoma City, the project aims to revamp the local entertainment landscape and generate substantial economic advantages for both the Tribe and Oklahoma.
Building on Trust and Reputation
The Tribe's collaboration with Caesars stems from the latter's outstanding reputation in the gaming sector. Recognized as North America's top gaming company, Caesars has a rich history of associations with several Native Indian tribes. Tribal Chairman Perri Ahhaitty praised Caesars for their consistent success with similar projects.Related: Caesars Entertainment Debuts Proprietary Online Casino in North America
One of the partnership's notable benefits is the integration of the Caesars Rewards program. This initiative will allow guests to accumulate and redeem points across Caesars' global venues, amplifying the appeal of the forthcoming resort. Ahhaitty indicated that this integration would enhance their outreach beyond Oklahoma.
The partnership also promises significant economic dividends. The tribes are pivotal employers in Oklahoma, and this joint venture is anticipated to introduce hundreds of jobs, especially with the progression of the hotel project.
A Glimpse into Harrah's Casino Resort
The upcoming Harrah's-branded establishment will be developed in phases. The initial phase will concentrate on the casino and diversifying dining choices for visitors. A state-of-the-art hotel is planned for the subsequent phase, aiming to enrich the resort's offerings.
Robert Livingston, SVP of Development at Caesars, shared the company's excitement about the venture. He believes the extensive Caesars' footprint in the Midwest makes Harrah's a fitting brand for the Oklahoma market.
The Iowa Tribe is not a newcomer in the gaming sector. They already manage entities like the Cimarron Casino and Ioway Casino. Their operations also extend to the Iowa Travel Plaza and Mart, where they host a number of slot machines.
The alliance between the Iowa Tribe and Caesars Entertainment is seen as a major leap in boosting the region's entertainment quotient. More than just an entertainment initiative, it's an economic catalyst set to drive growth in the region. With shared aspirations, both entities are preparing to ensure the project's grand success.
