Posted August 1, 2012: The new Bordertown Casino has a name - Indigo Sky.
Construction continues on the new 80,000 square foot gaming space in Ottawa County, Oklahoma. Also included with the new casino is a 117 room hotel.
The Eastern Shawnee Tribe decided to name the casino something to go along with their heritage.
"You look around at the finishes on the property, the wall finishes, the stonework, the design the decor, even the ceiling for goodness sake, we spent time detailing that," says General Manager Jerry West. "So to me, there is no one thing that sets it apart from others - it's the entire thing and the synergy we have created between it."
The opening date for Indigo Sky has yet to be announced.
