River Spirit Casino opens in Tulsa March 31

February 5, 2009

TULSA - The Muscogee (Creek) Nation announced the tribe's new River Spirit Casino will open March 31st.

Jennifer Cross, director of marketing for the Creek Nation Casino, said ''It's a go. No matter what, we're opening. We're very, very excited because it's been in the works for multiple years."

Tribe officials planned to open it this month but bad weather and construction delays have pushed it into March.

The $195 million casino is near 81st Street and Riverside Drive. With 300,000 square feet it will be one of the largest casinos in Oklahoma.

Gaming will include 2,800 slot machines, 24 table games, a 15-table poker room, and a High Stakes VIP lounge. The casino will also have four dining areas, a live entertainment venue, and a 1,300-space parking garage. About 650 more employees will be added to the current staff at the existing Creek Nation Casino.

A second phase will begin construction later this year. Chief A.D. Ellis said "I think within the next five or six years, this is going to surpass Oklahoma City's Bricktown. We have about 140 acres, so it's probably unlimited what we can do. We're really going to help the city of Tulsa grow."

Grand opening festivities for the River Spirit Casino have not been finalized.
