GRANT, Okla., (November 3, 2017) – Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant celebrated today the completion of a $50 million expansion project that has created more than 100 new jobs for local residents. The expanded resort and gaming amenities include the new West Wingtower with 96 well-appointed rooms including 23 suites, a deluxe resort pool, an exclusive poker room, the country’s only Chili’s Grill & Bar located in a casino, and more.

“This is a proud day for the Choctaw Nation to celebrate progress in Choctaw Country,” Chief Gary Batton told the crowd of state and local government officials, tribal leaders, and supporters. “As Choctaws, we strive to better the lives not just of our people, but all of whom we interact with,” he said standing in front of the hotel’s new West Tower.

“Located just a short drive north of Paris, Texas, many of our returning guests do so because they enjoy the resort’s features and our gaming opportunities,” explained Chris Scrivner Senior Director of Gaming Operations, Choctaw Casinos & Resorts. “To meet the growing public’s demand for affordable luxury, we’ve created a beautiful, state-of-the art property. The rooms are stylish but comfortable, and the suites have a great view of our new pool and pool bar. We also upgraded the lobby to create an arrival experience that is by far the best in the area for our guests. We’re already booking those rooms and suites for the holidays, and especially New Year’s Eve. This year, with 96 additional rooms, we’re looking forward to celebrating with more guests than ever before,” Scrivner said.

A new, exclusive poker room features five tables away from the hustle and bustle of the casino floor, with its own dedicated staff who are there to ensure the environment that poker players demand.

Delicious new food and beverage options include Chili’s Grill & Bar and Cove Café, offering made-to-order sandwiches, pizzas, pastries and desserts. Firehouse Grill and Buffet added 48 more seats.

The celebration continues all month long with fun and exciting events including a headline concert performance by Martina McBride, November 3rd in the Grant Event Center. Future concerts include Turnpike Troubadours on December 29th and Midland on January 13th. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster. The River Bar and Grill features Karaoke everyTuesday at 8 pm and live entertainment every Friday starting at 9:30 pm. One can also catch their favorite sporting event on the big screen TV while enjoying a cold beer.

“A Grander Grand Opening” $100,000 giveaway kicks off on November 4th and continues every Saturday in November. The “Tailgate in the Party Pit” promotion continues in November with Hot Seat drawings from 3 pm to 8 pm for Tailgate party SWAG and Grand Prize Drawings for $500 in Chips at 8 pm.

In addition, between November 12th and November 25th, players can earn credits to win a National Finals Rodeo Vegas Trip. Sixteen “Rapid Fire” drawings for $1,000 in Free Play will be held on Friday, November 17th from 9 pm to 12:45 am.
