FireLake Casino is now the Grand Casino
The Citizen Potawatomi Nation announced they will change the name of FireLake Grand Casino to Grand Casino. As the CPN enterprises expand and develop, a name change was in order to distinguish between the original FireLake Casino in south Shawnee, the other FireLake businesses, and FireLake Grand Casino on I-40 at Exit 178 in Shawnee.
“We are excited about the growth of the CPN properties,” said Steve Degraffenreid, General Manager of the Grand Casino Resort. “Although the casino will be branded with a new name, our guests will still receive the same great service that they have enjoyed since we opened in 2006. We invite you to come out and see all of the exciting changes taking place.”
Currently, construction continues on the Grand Hotel & Resort which will feature a fourteen-story guestroom tower with 262 suites. Sporting the same architectural style as the casino, the hotel will feature a Frank Lloyd Wright influenced design. The expansion also brings in a new entertainment theater which will seat over 2,500 spectators. With meeting rooms, a spa, fitness center, an outdoor pool, and expanded entertainment area, the all new Grand Casino Resort will be an asset to loyal guests as well as the tourists traveling through Oklahoma.
The FireLake enterprises located at Hardesty Road & Gordon Cooper Drive in Shawnee include the recently finished FireLake Bowling Center, The Ball Fields at FireLake, and the Arena at FireLake. That area also houses the original FireLake Casino, FireLake Discount Foods, FireLake Convenience Store, FireLake Golf Course, FireLake Mini Putt, RV and campground area, the CPN Cultural Heritage Center, and the Citizen Potawatomi Nation’s tribal headquarters.
The changes at the Citizen Potawatomi Nation are exciting and plans for more improvements are in the works. Stop by and catch the excitement at the Grand Casino or any of the great FireLake Enterprises!
Presented with pride by the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, the Grand Casino Resort features more than 1,800 Vegas-style games in the beautiful 125,000 square foot facility, from the hottest slot machines to some 100 table games. Six percent of the Grand’s net gaming revenue goes to support the state’s public education from the games designated “Class 3, Oklahoma Compact.” Dining options range from sizzling steaks at Embers Steakhouse to the exciting Grandstand Sports Grille and The Grand Buffet. Construction is well underway for the new Grand Hotel & Resort which will feature 262 luxurious suites and a new 2,500 seat theater. These new amenities are set to open in early 2013. The Grand Casino is conveniently located just east of Oklahoma City on Interstate 40 at Exit 178 in Shawnee.
