Cherokee Casino Review (Tulsa, Oklahoma)
Cherokee Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma is a 95,00 square foot gambling mecca. The casino is run by the Cherokee Nation
of Indians and it is one of seven casinos in operation by the Cherokees.
The Tulsa Casino boasts 1,500 electronic gaming machines, which resemble Vegas style slots. They have recently added 476 compact machines that offer instant bingo video poker and player favorites like Wheel of Fortune.
I tried my luck at several of the machines and they play fast and are not loose. It takes a long while to traverse the casino, it is about 4 times the size of an average supermarket. I wandered through aisles of machines and tables, stopping to deposit my $20 bills in many different types, one machine played well and had my attention for about an hour, regularly giving back after four or five spins slighly more than I invested. I left that Wheel of Fortune machine up $100. Yet, I left the casino losing $200.
For the poker player, Cherokee Casino claims to have the biggest and best poker room in the Midwest. There are 36 poker tables that offer Texas Hold 'Em, Omaha, and Seven-Card Stud. Non-house banded cards games are played where the players play against each other, not the house.
There is a VIP room, the only one in Oklahoma, that caters to VIP's with high roller games. There is two deck Blackjack, Pai-Gow, and Three-Card Poker. Minimums are $25 and up. Maximum is $1,000. Mini Baccarat is also available.
