Osage Casinos to celebrate Pawhuska casino and hotel opening

The ribbon cutting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m.

Osage Casinos is hosting a ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of its newest gaming property in Pawhuska.

The long-awaited casino and hotel features 259 slot machines, over 3,000 square feet of meeting space, a pool, and a 47-room hotel on 63 acres. The ribbon cutting will take place on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.

The event will begin with remarks from officials with Osage Casinos and the Osage Nation. The new location of the casino is 1421 John Dahl Ave. A separate event for Osage tribal members will be held on Oct. 4. Details are forthcoming.

The new Pawhuska property will stand at 87,808 square feet, employ more than 100 people and serve as a hospitality resource for the influx of visitors and businesses coming to the Osage Nation. On the day the new casino officially opens, the existing location in the Pawhuska Village will close.

An opening date for the Bartlesville casino and hotel has yet to be announced. ON government and Gaming Enterprise officials broke ground on both projects in back-to-back ceremonies on June 15, 2021.

According to a news release, before 2002, as Indian gaming received federal approval, the Osage Tribal Council created the Osage Tribe Gaming Enterprise Board. This group today provides oversight for the business entity known as Osage Casinos. Today, the Osage Nation uses revenues from the Osage Casinos to: Fund tribal government and programs; provide for the general welfare of the tribe and its members; promote tribal economic development; support charitable organizations; help fund operations of local government agencies of the Osage Nation.
