Significant Economic Impact on Local Community

The Chickasaw Nation boasts this latest gaming and entertainment venue will have a significant impact on the revenues of the local community.

The entertainment resort has generated over 450 jobs in a variety of roles. The positions are both full-time and part-time, with payroll costs running at an estimated $3.7 million annually. In the last year, there has been a flow of $102.4 million in revenue which includes the cost of construction.

The amount in projected income to the local economy and surrounding areas over the next five years is thought to be over $307.6 million.

The opening of Lakecrest follows a busy period for the Chickasaw Nation after they launched the Choctaw Landing resort and casino in Hochatown. The resort has 600 slots and eight table games and is due to be open to the public later this month.

When we look at this property, we see more than just the fun and entertainment, or the peace and relaxation of luxury accommodations, We see employment and the creation of hundreds of new jobs. We see the positive economic impact on the economies of Ardmore and Carter County. Most of all, we see the multitude of ways it will directly contribute to meeting our mission to enhance the overall quality of life of the Chickasaw people.
