It’s been 12 years since we’ve opened our doors to the public, and the time has flown by! When we opened in 2006, we weren’t much more than a quaint gaming floor. Now, we’re proud to serve our friends with more than 200,000 square feet of gaming action with all the amenities to boot!
Twelve years might not seem like a long time but check this out… In 2006, Facebook had just opened to the public. The Miami Heat captured their first championship on the shoulders of Gary Payton, Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O’Neal. Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day” topped the Billboard 100.
Now that we’ve established how long ago 2006 actually was, we want to tell you a little bit about how far we’ve come. Three years after we opened our doors, the Riverwind Hotel was added. We introduced a new dining option, Chips ‘N Ales, in 2012 and four years later presented the inaugural Beats & Bites Music and Food Truck Festival, which has grown into Oklahoma City’s largest recurring festival of its kind.
We’re proud to offer more than 2,800 games, including 30 table games. There are six dining options and three bars on the gaming floor and the 1,500-seat Showplace Theatre hosts world-class talent year-round.
All the bells and whistles are nice, but it really comes down to our amazing team. We have more than 800 full and part-time team members who not only serve our patrons tirelessly, but also give back to the community through food drives with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, golf tournaments to benefit Cavett Kids and the Norman Public Schools Foundation, blood drives with the Oklahoma Blood Institute and more.
