Winstar Previews New Convention Center

Posted:

THACKERVILLE, OK -- A Texoma business expansion is complete.  

With 600,000 square feet, Winstar World Casino and Resort is the largest casino in the world.

And in April 2015, managers decided to gamble on going even bigger, adding another 65,000 square feet.

Now, 17 months later, the casino is unveiling its new state of the art convention center.

From ballrooms to board rooms, the building is covered with high tech lighting and upscale décor.

The facility features a 1,500 square foot grand ballroom that can fit up to 1,200 people.

And for smaller, more intimate events, the junior ballroom is set for up to accommodate about 500.

The center also includes a full service food and beverage kitchen.

But Winstar says they're most excited about bringing in more than 50 jobs they say will help the local economy.
