The Choctaw Nation celebrating the completion of a $50 million expansion project at one of its casinos in Oklahoma.

The Choctaw Casino and Resort in Grant now boasts a new hotel wing with 96 rooms, more gaming machines, a new poker room, a pool, a new cafe and a larger buffet. It's also home to the first and only Chili's Grill & Bar in a gaming facility in the entire United States.

"This is a proud day for the Choctaw Nation to celebrate progress in Choctaw Country," Chief Gary Batton said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, according to a press release.

The tribe broke ground on the project in August 2016.
