Casino officials showed the group around the inside of the more than 25,000-square-foot casino, which aims for an opening in early December. The Fort Gibson casino opened in 2003 with 12 employees and employs 74 people. When the expanded casino opens, it will employ 150. The new casino features a full restaurant and bar, as well as an elevated stage for live music shows every Friday and Saturday.
