Osage Nation starts work on second casino expansion project

The Osage Nation of Oklahoma broke ground on a second casino expansion project on Wednesday.

The Osage Casino in Skiatook will grow to 78,000 square-feet when it's completed in fall of 2013. The facility will feature a restaurant, sports bar and a 33-room hotel.

The land for the casino placed in trust last year. The hotel, however, will be located on non-trust land.

The tribe is upgrading all seven of its casinos.
