Osage Casinos Breaks Ground on Two New Properties

Osage Groundbreaking

PAWHUSKA, OK – Osage Casinos recently broke ground on two new casino and hotel properties in Pawhuska and Bartlesville. Plans have been underway for nearly eight years. The Osage Nation applied with the U.S. Interior Department in 2014 to transfer the Bartlesville property into a federal trust for use in gaming, followed by Pawhuska. 

“We received approval for both applications last summer and immediately got to work on adjusting the scope of the properties to accommodate today’s construction costs,” said Byron Bighorse, CEO of Osage Casinos. “Demand in both markets continues to rise, and I am proud that we worked together as an enterprise to see this come to fruition.” 

Details for each casino include: 


  • 60 acres  
  • 250 electronic games 
  • 3,675 sq. ft. of meeting space  
  • 47-room hotel 
  • Pool and hot tub area 
  • Fitness center 


  • 125 acres  
  • 500 electronic games 
  • 10,560 sq. ft. of meeting space  
  • Full service catering 
  • 86 luxury hotel rooms, 15 suites 
  • Pool and hot tub area 
  • Patio 
  • Fitness Center 

Expected completion of both locations is Fall 2022.
