In March 2008, 7 Clans Casinos opened its second casino, First Council Casino Hotel in Newkirk, Oklahoma. The luxurious casino in Northwest Oklahoma, just south of the Kansas-Oklahoma border, offers 18 game tables, 1,250 gaming machines, a poker room, blackjack room and bingo. But this facility has more than just gaming. It features full-service bars, a restaurant, snack bar and the Council Bluff Event Center, where national touring acts take the stage. The casino building also has added a hotel – home to 86 rooms and suites, making it a premier destination in the region.
The Otoe-Missouria Development Authority owns and operates five casino buildings in Oklahoma. According to the Missouria Tribe, the 7 Clans First Council Casino building from General Steel is the premeir casino in their portfolio.
Building a Casino in Oklahoma with General Steel
Incorporating every aspect of your vision is our goal.
7 Clans Casinos approached General Steel about building a casino and restaurant in 2007. We worked with 7 Clans Casinos to make sure our building would meet the requirements of a multi-use facility. With a gaming floor, multiple gaming rooms, bars and a restaurant, it was important that the casino building design would be versatile enough to maximize the functionality of each building component.

Why First Council Chose a Prefab Steel Building
Our buildings are versatile, open and last for generations.
When you first examine this casino building project, the insulated stucco panels may have grabbed your attention. These panels are distinctive and offer a high insulation value, but the added value is in the manufacturing process. Similar to how all General Steel components are prepunched when the building is fabricated, the stucco is pre-applied to the panels at the factory. This ultimately saves time and money without sacrificing aesthetics.
The First Council Casino hotel also benefits from three other distinct features of a General Steel building:
- Customization: The casino building is home to more than just gaming, which requires a one-of-a-kind design specific to the needs of 7 Clans Casino
- Clear Span: Provides column-free interiors for uninterrupted floor space for gaming
- Durability: General Steel buildings are made of the highest quality steel, and combined with a 50-year warranty, provide 7 Clans Casinos with a facility they can count on for years to come.
