The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma's plan to build a new Harrah's hotel and casino between Oklahoma City and Tulsa is delayed due to issues with Gov. Stitt over a new gaming compact. Construction was expected to start next April and finish in mid-2026.[No Ads]
The Iowa Nation plan to replace their Ioway Casino with the larger Harrah's Oklahoma. Current access to the casino requires a five-mile detour. The tribe wants to eliminate this inconvenience and pay for a dedicated I-44 exit ramp that will lead directly to the casino.
The Tribe proposed the new I-44 exit ramp in 2019, but Gov. Stitt was resistant. Stitt insists on a new gaming pact as a condition for the ramp. A new compact would hike the state's revenue share from 6% to 13%. The Tribe claims it does not need a new compact because the 6% rate was established by the 2004 Model Gaming Compact and upheld by the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Iowa Nation Chairman, Jacob Keyes, disapproves the Governor's proposed compact and is looking to the state legislature to resolve the stalemate.
