Choctaw Nation Oklahoma, one of the largest Indian Nations in the United States, partnered with sports betting technology provider Kambi to enhance its online gaming entities. 

Choctaw Nation is the exclusive casino, resort partner of the MLB’s Texas Rangers

This news was highly anticipated by southern gamblers. Choctaw Nation, operator of Choctaw Casinos & Resorts, owns a number of gaming and hospitality destinations throughout southeastern Oklahoma. 

It is also the exclusive casino and resort partner of the MLB’s Texas Rangers. Of course, Choctaw Nation’s flagship resort is located near the Texas-Oklahoma border.

The goal of Choctaw Nation is to “combine its digital and ecommerce expertise with Kambi sportsbook with the ambition to become an online and retail sports betting powerhouse,” according to the official press release.

Not only does Choctaw Nation have fantastic, well positioned gaming and entertainment facilities in Oklahoma, but its proven track record in developing successful digital businesses gives me every confidence that together we will create thrilling sports betting experiences for its players. 

“Due to these exciting credentials, Choctaw Nation was an obvious partner, so I am therefore delighted it saw the benefits of Kambi’s proven technology and recognized our shared values. Trust remains paramount through each tribal partnership, and we look forward to delivering a best-in-class sportsbook that generates long-term sustainable revenues for the Choctaw Nation.”
