Tribal Organization: Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas
333 State Park Road 56
Livingston, Texas 77351
Opening date June 2, 2016.
The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas originally a casino in 2001. After 9 months of operation Texas ruled that state law supersedes national Indian law and the casino was shut down.
Near the end of 2015 the U.S. Department of Interior and the National Indian Gaming Commission ruled that the tribe can operate games on its reservation.
Michael Odle with the National Indian Gaming Commission said in November 2015, "After evaluating a recent court decision it is in our belief, as well as the Department of the Interior, it provides the tribes in Texas the ability to game under Class II gaming. Generally what you will see is various forms of bingo, both hard copy and electronic forms." Class II gaming excludes poker tables, slot machines or roulette.
The new Naskila Entertainment casino replaced the former Livingston Entertainment Center. It is located off U.S. 190 between Woodville and Livingston about 17 miles east of the city of Livingston and 240 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
