The Choctaw Nation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new travel center and gaming facility in Heavener, Oklahoma.

The Choctaw Travel Plaza and Casino Too features an 10,200 square-foot fueling station and a full-service kitchen. The gaming portion offers 37 electronic machines.

“We’re hoping we can create more economy, more spending … and more people staying here," Chief Gary Batton said in a press release on March 21. “We need to not let our communities die out. We need to make sure they stay strong.”

The tribe operates eight full-service casinos and 11 smaller "casino too" locations, according to Choctaw Casinos.
