After several delays and postponed grand opening dates, the Kiowa Casino is now in compliance with the National Indian Gaming Commission and will be ready for business when it opens to the public May 23 near Randlett, close to the Red River border between Oklahoma and Texas. Events pre-dating the opening include a May 21 employee pep rally and a tribal celebration on May 22.
"There's actually 19 terms of our pre-opening agreement that had to be complied with, some of which had to be completed 60 days before we planned to open," said Lee Rhoades, Kiowa Casino Operating Authority chairman. "There was no way to know what that 60 days was going to be until we got that information in their hands, and they could say 'yes' or 'no.'"
Among the last of the terms to get approval from NIGC were issues of licensing up to 60 individual employees, as well as lenders, developers and consultants that are involved with the casino. Rhoades said that this process can take up to 90 days prior to the grand opening being approved.
