Choctaw Casino | Resort is a gaming & tourist destination in southern Oklahoma owned & operated by the Choctaw Nation, a Native American Indian tribal organization. Choctaw Event Center is the main entertainment stage at the Durant location, the flagship franchise of a larger operation that covers the southeastern portion of the state. The $300 million resort is one of the largest not just in Oklahoma but in the United States.

The original facility, erected in 1987, centered primarily around a large bingo hall and slot machines. In just a few years the casino’s popularity outstripped its capacity, and tribal officials approved a massive expansion of the site. Demolition began in 2008 and various renovations/new construction projects followed. Apart from a general enlargement of gaming space, new additions to the complex include a 12-story hotel; multiple restaurants; a wellness center complete with exercise facilities and a full gymnasium; “The Oasis,” a swimming & water park contained on the resort premises; and the expanded/remodeled Choctaw Nation Event Center, opened in 2008, for music concerts and similar entertainment events.

Venue specifics:
The Choctaw Event Center auditorium is a non-smoking facility. Concessions are sold on the premises but alcohol is not allowed. Only non-professional grade cameras are permitted during shows. Seating capacity is roughly 3,500. Persons in wheelchairs can be accommodated with ramp access and companion seating. Shuttle services are available to transport guests between the CEC and the main casino.
