Texas Gamblers Will Soon Have Another Option As A Brand New Casino And Resort Is Set To Open This Week.

While it seems like casinos and gambling companies continue to focus on whether or not North Texas, especially Dallas, will become a gambling epicenter, Oklahoma continues to build up new and exciting areas to lure Texas gamblers across state lines.

After several months of preparation, Texans will have a new destination to get away to.

Choctaw Landing, a 100-bed resort and casino located in Hochatown, Oklahoma, is scheduled to open April 3rd.
