The Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma, headquartered in Ada, has reported $1.44 billion in net revenue from its tribal gaming enterprises during this fiscal year.
It’s an eleven percent increase from last fiscal year, and the highest ever in the nation's history, reports local media.
The Chickasaws operate several major Oklahoma gaming establishments including Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Riverwind Casino in Norman, and WinStar World Casino in Thackerville.
Among the tribe’s holdings are two off-track wagering facilities, 18 casinos, two bingo halls, 18 tribal smoke shops, seven motor fuel outlets, and two truck stops.
The Chickasaw Nation was created after the Chickasaw people were forcibly removed during the 1830’s from Southeast portion of the U.S. in what is now known as the "Trail of Tears".
