Casino Building Design
With a 54,000 SQFT Steel Building
Designing a First Class Casino
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 premier casino in their portfolio.
“7 Clans First Council Casino is the most beautiful and exciting casino in the region.”
More Than Just a Casino Building
The Otoes and Missourias eventually settled along what is now the Missouri River, where they were known as a center for trade. In 1881, they were moved to Oklahoma, where around 3,000 members still live. The tribe uses the casino revenue to invest in other areas of commerce, including agriculture and hospitality, as well as preserving and continuing their rich tribal culture.
