Oklahoma Casino Games

All Indian gaming is governed by the U.S. Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) and regulated by the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC), an agency of the U.S. Department of Interior.

Casinos are built on tribal land or off-reservation land that has been placed in trust with the federal government. Prior to construction each tribe must negotiate a gaming compact with the state defining the games played at the casino, operating hours, and the share the revenue paid to the state.

29 Tribal Nations Unite Against OK Gov

August 21, 2019

The Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association sent a letter July 26 to Governor J. Kevin Stitt and signed by leaders of 29 Oklahoma tribes. The letter unanimously opposed the governor's call to renegotiate the 2004 gaming compacts that expire Jan 1, 2020.

The letter reads, "We, the undersigned Tribal leaders, respectfully represent that we intend to stand united in response to your recent statement that the Gaming Compact will expire at the end of this year."

The letter continues to read as a statement of unity with emphasis on these points:

  1. The gaming compacts automatically renew on Jan 1, 2020.

    The letter reads, "They represent promises made by the State of Oklahoma and the Tribes. Promises we intend to fulfill now and in the future, and we expect the State to do the same."

  2. The current gaming rates paid to the state should not change.

  3. The Governor can call for renegotiation of rates, but without mutual agreement the rates remain unchanged and automatically renew.

  4. The governor should address his proposals to this group rather than to individual tribes.

    The letter reads, "We would ask that you send your proposal to each and every Tribe together so that we may consider any proposal as a unified body of tribal leaders."

The following are member tribes of the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association as listed on the organization's website (www.oiga.org).

Five Civilized Tribes Reject OK Gov's Demand to Renegotiate Compacts

July 12, 2019

The Inter-Tribal Council of the Five Civilized Tribes today rejected Gov. Kevin Stitt's position that existing gaming compacts expire Jan 1, 2020 and must be renegotiated prior to that date.

The Five Tribes passed a resolution of unity affirming their position that gaming compacts automatically renew unless the state and tribes mutually agree to changes.

The leaders signing the resolution are (left to right) Muscogee (Creek) Nation Principal Chief James R. Floyd, Choctaw Nation Chief Gary Batton, Seminole Nation Chief Greg. P. Chilcoat, Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby and Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker.

A joint statement was also issued following the meeting of the Inter-Tribal Council. A portion of the statement says:

"The recent action of Governor Stitt puts into question his sincerity to work with us in a cooperative manner moving ahead. We are resolute in our position, and it is our hope Governor Stitt and his advisors will not attempt any bad faith interference on the compact which could set back the progress we have achieved by working together."

OK Gov and Tribes Clash Over Compact Renewals

July 11. 2019

Courtesy of KFOR News 4, July 11, 2019

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has announced his intention to negotiate new gaming compacts with Oklahoma tribes, a move that surprised most tribal leaders. The current gaming compacts are scheduled to renew on January 1, 2020.

Gaming compacts are agreements with the state government granting exclusive gambling rights to individual Oklahoma tribes, and in return, the tribes pay the state between 4% and 10% of their net gambling revenues.

There is a basic disagreement between the governor and the tribes regarding the "renewal" terms of the compacts

The governor feels the compacts are 15 years old and deserve a "fresh look" based on today's gaming industry. He believes Vegas-style Class III gaming will end automatically on Jan 1 without renegotiation or court action.

The tribes disagree. They believe the compacts will automatically renew if both sides do not come to a new agreement.

Any compact changes require final approval from the federal government.

Comanche case against Chickasaw casino is rejected by U.S. Supreme Court

May 28, 2019

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case filed by the Comanche Nation seeking to block the Chickasaw Nation from building its Riverstar Casino at Terral in Jefferson County, OK.

The Comanche Nation case claimed the casino site was part of the Comanche's original reservation and was wrongfully taken into federal trust by the Secretary of Interior. The lies within 45 miles of the Comanche Red River Hotel and Casino at Devol.

The Supreme Court declined without comment to let stand a previous decision by U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Judge Heaton ruled the Terral land is now within the Chickasaw reservation and the Commanche Nation shouldhave filed a case within the six-year statute of limitations for challenging the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1986.

The Chickasaw Nation began construction on the Riverstar Casino in May 2017. It opened March 1, 2018.

The Riverstar Casino is located on U.S. Highway 81 about two miles north of the Texas border.

Will Creek Nation build a hotel in downtown Tulsa?

May 14, 2019

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation is conducting a comprehensive evaluation of building a 400-600 room hotel.

The hotel would be built near the BOK Center. The current location under consideration is two acres across Denver Ave from the BOK Center. The address is 200 W. First St. which lies between First and Second streets.

The tribe's hotel project plan with conceptual drawings has been favorably received by city and county officials. If the project seems feasible, it will continue to develop it will eventually engage an architectural firm to prepare a conceptual design.

In recent years the Creek Nation has made significant investments in south Tulsa. These include the River Spirit Casino Resort, retail development on Riverside Parkway, and the revitalization of RiverWalk.

Keetoowah Cherokee propose casino in Enid OK

September 17, 2018

There is a new casino project being proposed for Enid. The casino would be owned by the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. However, the controversy is already starting due to gaming not being allowed in the city limits.

A meeting was held on Tuesday with representatives from the tribe and the Enid City Commission. During this meeting the city was told that the project will move forward regardless of having support or not from the city.

The property that the tribe wants to use will need to be taken into federal trust before the tribe can conduct any gaming. One of the steps needed for this to have approval for the project by the Oklahoma governor.

The tribe has expressed interest in obtaining support from the city on the casino project. Step one in the approval process will be getting support from the city commission. An application asking for land to be placed into trust also needs to be submitted to the Department of Interior. An environmental impact report will need have a study conducted to ensure that the project will be in compliance with the Environmental Policy Act.

The proposed casino would offer slot machines, blackjack, poker, craps, and roulette. The building would be 20,000 square feet.

Since tribal land is considered sovereign, the tribe can agree to pay the city a fee instead of paying taxes. Over ten years a monthly payment would be made to the city based on the revenue that was made from the casino. The city will also be given $12 million for infrastructure improvements. These agreements would be done as a way to show the city that the tribe is interested in being a good neighbor.

Oklahoma craps and roulette by October 2018

July 26, 2018

The annual Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association was held this week in Oklahoma City. One of the topics of discussion was the future of gaming in the state.

Recently a law was approved that will allow for casinos to operate roulette and craps. It is estimated that tribal owned casinos will begin offering these games in October.

Supporters of the new gaming opportunities believe that it will help generate more revenue at the casinos. As well as attract more visitors to the area. The popularity of the games and not able to operate them in the state are believed to have kept many casino visitors away.

Compacts between the state and the tribes have been amended with nearly half of the tribes that own casinos. The Department of Interior will send final approval and then the games will be allowed to begin operation.

Many of the casinos have their preparations in place to start offering the games. They are only waiting the for final approval that everything is legally in place.

They are hopeful it could take place by Labor Day. However, that may be unlikely.

Another popular topic at the annual event was sports betting.

Recently the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a law that prevented sports betting in states outside of Nevada. Individual states have been given the power to decide if it will be allowed at their casinos. Oklahoma would still need to pass its own law before sports betting would be allowed.

Adding the new games of blackjack and roulette will earn an estimated $20 million for Oklahoma as soon as the games are implemented.

10 percent of the money earned from these games will be paid in taxes to the state.

Gov. Fallin signs law allowing craps and roulette in Indian casinos

April 11, 2018

Casinos owned by Native Americans in Oklahoma will now be able to offer additional games, such as craps and roulette, as a result of a new measure, H.B. 3375, that was signed on Tuesday by Governor Mary Fallin.

This is the first time ever in the state's history. The measure will allow tribal casinos to operate dice games and roulette. Tax revenue made from the games will fund education programs and salaries for teachers.

The governor also signed a bill that would remove the hotel and motel room tax of $5. Tax will also be added to purchases made online from retailers.

Taxes collected from these measures will total in the millions. It will cover an average of $6,100 pay raise for teachers. The largest in history.

There will be $353.5 million allocated for teacher salaries. Support staff will receive $52 million. Benefit flex health care will have $24.7 million. State education aid will receive $17 million. Teaching supplies and text books will be funded with a projected $50 million.

The education funding package will total $2.9 billion for the 2019 fiscal year. The plan is expected to be fulfilled. The current fiscal year ends in June of this year.

State legislators and the governor are trying to show residents in Oklahoma and educators that investing more into education is important. They want people in the state to know that investing in the education of Oklahoma will help better their lives and their futures.
