Ceremonial Dice to Roll at Buffalo Run Casino
Buffalo Run Casino & Resort and other Oklahoma casinos can now open up roulette and craps tables to customers.
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed House Bill 3375 into law in April approving traditional ball and dice games in the state. The law expands gaming rules to allow roulette and craps. Many casinos had these kinds of games, but used playing cards instead of dice.
The state signed agreements with at least ten tribes.
Chief Harper, from the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma, will be throwing the ceremonial dice at Buffalo Run Casino on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.
“Vegas style gaming has finally made it to Oklahoma,” said Kassie Rogers, Table Games Shift Supervisor. “Throwing the dice gives an added excitement to not only this game, but our table games in general.” According to Buffalo Run Casino officials, craps will have 3X-4X-5X odds. There is also a Firebet side bet that allows Craps players a chance to win $1,000 or $1 on the table. Table limits range from $5 to $500. Officials say there will not be any Ante’s as long as the player is playing with a Buffalo Run Casino & Resort Player’s Club Card.
Buffalo Run Casino & Resort says preemptive training started in April. “From the moment it was first announced that Oklahoma approved ball and dice, our team started working hard to be ready for this moment,” said Cindy Courtney, Director of Table Games. “After a long journey, we are finally here! Stay tuned for Vegas Style Roulette coming next week!”
Oklahoma’s new law sweeps aside one of the last differences between Oklahoma casinos and their out-of-state competitors.
