Legends Resort & Casino is owned and operated by Cherokee Nation Businesses (CNB). CNB’s history in the hospitality and gaming industry spans more than three decades. We helped pioneer casino gaming in Oklahoma, and our operations have grown to include 10 casinos and associated hospitality amenities, including restaurants, entertainment venues, hotels, golf courses, and a horseracing track. Across our properties, CNB hosts more than 10 million annual guest visits and employs more than 4,000 team members.


Building on CNB’s growth throughout Northeast Oklahoma, Legends Resort & Casino will be CNB’s first commercial casino operation. Legends Resort & Casino will be a premier $225 million entertainment destination located off Hob Nob Road, just north of Interstate 40 between the Weir Road exit to the west and Bradley Cove Road exit to the east.


Over the course of our history, CNB has succeeded by doing business the right way – through thoughtful planning, building partnerships, and always honoring commitments. CNB’s culture of success and innovation has led to rapid growth, and our commitment to ethical operations has earned the respect of industry partners.


With robust plans for best-in-class gaming, a four-star hotel, and amenities and attractions inspired by the unique beauty of the Arkansas River Valley, Legends will offer something for everyone. Stay tuned for development updates over the coming months.


Be bold. Be surprised. Be legendary.
