River Spirit Casino is a long-time dream come true and pays tribute to the heritage of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. Beginning in 1984 as Creek Nation Casino-Tulsa Bingo, we quickly grew to become one of Oklahoma's leading Indian gaming facilities. River Spirit Casino has one of the largest gaming floors in Oklahoma, with 200,000 square feet of the most exciting games in town! You want it, we got it. Table Games, Poker, 2,600 of the most popular Electronic Games, even a dedicated gaming area for our non-smoking guests.

Want a quick bite, or a delicious dinner? Or maybe a sports bar for catching the game on one of the biggest TVs in town?

Treat yourself to one of three casual dining options: Visions Buffet, the largest casino buffet in Oklahoma; Johnny Rockets® The Original Hamburger; and Rain Bay Express, a grab-n-go cafe for guests on the run.

Calling all Parrot Heads! The Jimmy Buffett-themed It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar is now open. Catch your team in a comfortable setting at Scoreboard Sports Bar! Watch the biggest games on our wall of HDTVs, and kick back with one of our wide selection of draft beers, signature cocktails, and wine by the glass.

Sure, there’s no shortage of entertainment choices out there. But there’s only one that simply can’t be beat - River Spirit Casino! From rockin’ live music by local artists, to electrifying performances from some of the biggest names in show business, entertaining you is what we’re all about. Which is why nobody does it better!

My wife and I enjoy coming in on Sunday nights. The casino is trying to make improvements by adding more entertainment venues within the casino. We live in midtown and are looking forward to the Ruth Chris steakhouse and Margaritaville. I can't help to believe they are trying to market to a more affluent clientele by doing these improvements.

I come here several times a year. I gamble a lot, and I have found the machines here slightly looser than those at Riverwind in Norman. (I must caution other reviewers that you never go to a Casino to make money-you simply hope to hang around for awhile without loosing heavily.) The atmosphere is remarkedly smoke-free, and the food was... More

I wrote a review back in May of this year. We haven't been going to the River Spirit casino. We went tonight and nothing has changed. Took 400.00 to gamble with and never got a hit on anything. I have read the comments from the casino personnel stating that nothing has changed. Don't let them fool you. It has changed... More

We used to go to River Spirit on a weekly basis because we had food and slot comps and we live relatively close. But since the opening of the current casino we watched the service deteriorate. First the food quality started going down at the buffet, then all the regular comps gradually disappeared. The Elements restaurant that we liked so... More

I was tricked into coming here with my now ex-girlfriend recently so that didn't help my experience. The bar service was slow, the drinks were weak, and the slots didn't pay us a dime. As a matter of fact, we lost over $250 in about 90 minutes.

Got there about 6:30 pm. By 7:00 the machines were down (at least 90% of them). The cash machines, would not cash out your tickets. Had to stand in line just to find out I had to stand in another line, because only 1 of the tickets would scan. The machines were not reading the cards. I am sure River... More

Rarely do I see anyone with a good amount of money on their machine. I watched a couple last night put a $550 ticket in, play for 30 minutes and cash out at $150. The construction has been horrific. I would wait until the hotel opens before I would go there. MAYBE they will have looser machines then. It appears... More

Just horrible the way the slot machines are set to pay out. No one wins here anymore unless you shovel in thousands of dollars. My payout over the last several months has been less than 5%.
