US.- The Choctaw Nation is soon to complete a major expansion at Choctaw Casino and Resort – Durant after two and a half years of work.

The $600m expansion involves a new extension of the hotel with 21 floors, 1,000 rooms, 2 pools and a new casino to be connected to the old part of the venue by an amusement centre.

Wendy Carter, assistant general manager at Choctaw Casino and Resort, said: “I think everything as a whole is just elevated so the finishes the experience the service the menu the mixologist we’ve added so just everything you would expect to see at a 5 star resort you can find here,”

“Choctaw has been delivering exceptional experiences for 30 plus years here in Durant and we just know we can kick it up just a little notch here with new amenities.”

Brien Caldwell, director of resort marketing, said: “This is exciting, especially right now coming out of kind of a covid environment there’s not a lot of companies that can say they are on the grow and we are and we are a Tribe, Tribal Nation,”

There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony on August 5, before the venue opens the next day.

The venue had already undergone another expansion back in 2017. With a $50m investment, it added a brand new poker room, as well as the new West Wing tower with 96 rooms.
