Riverwind Casino is known as one of the largest of Oklahoma’s casinos, with an impressive 219,000 square feet of gaming space. It is also renowned for its off-track betting room, which allows visitors to watch races simultaneously from all around the world. Riverwind Casino is based in the city of Norman, to the south of Oklahoma City, and located at 1544 W State Highway 9. Like many casinos in the state, it is Native-American owned and open 24-hours. It competes with a number of other top-class casinos in the area, as Oklahoma City is developing a name as a gambling destination, although it has a long way to go before it can rival the likes of Las Vegas.
Riverwind Casino in Norman has a total of over 2,480 gaming machines, and 55 table and poker games. It offers all the games you would expect from a large casino establishment, including three-card poker, Blackjack, Mini-baccarat, and Texas Hold ‘em. What makes the Riverwind Casino special is its off-track betting facility, a room surrounded by sixteen television screens broadcasting horse racing from around the world. There are two restaurants at the Riverwind Casino, as well as two fast food joints, a café and a bakery, so no visitor is likely to go hungry. There is also a golf course about 24 miles away, so when you get tired of playing indoors, you can always take a day trip, and get a fresh breath of air.
The Riverwind Casino Hotel offers 100 rooms and, for those with the money to spare, nine spa suites with soaking tubs. All guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast and parking, and high-speed Internet access. The rooms feature plasma TVs, sofas, fridges, and coffee makers, so you’re likely to have a comfortable stay, and can come and go in between your room and the casino whenever you like. While there are many other hotels in Norman to choose from, the Riverwind Casino Hotel has the added benefit that the staff will be used to casino-goers, and will be able to provide information about the casino itself and the entertainment and dining facilities that it offers. It’s also convenient to stay at the Riverwind Casino Hotel for those booking flights into Oklahoma, as it is only 23 miles from the Will Rogers World Airport.
When you're tired of staying inside the casino, Norman is a great place to explore. The city is home to a selection of museums and galleries, such as the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art, home to the oldest collection of art in the state and one of the top things to do in Oklahoma. If you have time on your hands, Norman is only twenty miles south of downtown Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City is home to numerous parks and three stunning lakes. Its cultural attractions include the prestigious Oklahoma City Art Museum. When you’re finished gazing at the artistic and historical wonders, the city has an exciting variety of bars and restaurants, from world food in the Asia District to dainty treats in upmarket cafes built in the 1920s. As Oklahoma vacations go, visiting the Riverwind Casino has it all: great gambling facilities, comfortable accommodation, and nearby historical and cultural attractions.
