The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Pieces of the action

The Feds are complaining that the profits from the three Cheyenne-Arapaho casinos in the state are not being spent properly.

Under an agreement with the Department of the Interior, tribal leaders have a template for disbursing the funds; the agreement has been challenged in court. While the casinos could theoretically be closed, the government has not yet imposed a deadline for compliance.

The Lucky Star casinos in Clinton and Concho — the latter heavily advertised in Oklahoma City media — earned around $10 million last year.
