The lights are on, the games are in, the curtain is raised on a new era of excitement. The grand opening of Oklahoma's newest casino has arrived and Kickapoo Casino Shawnee wants YOU to be a part of the fun and winnings!
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.
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.
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 features live entertainment on almost every weekend and shows the “big game” on dozens of the flat screens and the massive 133” big screen!
It is worth the trip to experience the original Kickapoo Casino, located just east of Harrah at the intersection of Highway 102 and 62. If you are traveling from I-40 eastbound from Oklahoma City, just take exit 176 (McLoud Rd) and head north. Heading westbound on I-40 from the Shawnee area, take Highway 177 north to Highway 62 west.
Increase your odds – by visiting their newest location in Shawnee. Located 30 minutes from OKC at exit 181, at the corner of Highway 177 & McArthur.
