We had a great nights sleep and were on the road again early this morning. We drove about 220 miles and stopped in Thackerville, Oklahoma. We wanted to see the world’s largest casino, the WinStar. It has the most square feet of slot machines in the world. They also have a wonderful campground, if you go and sign in with a player’s card, they give you the first night free, even if you don’t play a dime. Not a bad deal! The WinStar RV park has 200 spaces and offers a shuttle service to the casino for all guest in the RV Park. It is a fabulous park, huge spaces and the Wi-Fi and everything works well. It is a bargain at $30 a night after the first free night.

The casino is fabulous! The long façade exterior of WinStar World Casino features replicas of London's Parliament Building, Rome's Coliseum and the Arc de Triomphe from Paris. The casino’s 3,500 seats Global Event Center has been home to some popular entertainment attractions including Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Adam Lambert, Weezer, Lil Wayne, ZZ Top, Maroon 5, Kid Rock, Tony Bennett, and Davy Jones, who gave his final concert at WinStar on February 19, 2012. It is divided into different counties and is absolutely beautiful inside.

WinStar World Casino and Resort is home to the 12-story, 395-room WinStar World Casino Hotel that’s adjacent to the gaming floor. On August 6, 2009, the 395-room hotel tower held a grand opening celebration that featured performances by American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Meeting rooms that have varied capacities of 10-200 people, a resort-style pool with a custom-built waterfall grotto, the Spa Habitat, and the Cloverleaf Boutique gift shop also opened on this date. WinStar World Casino and Resort also offers a variety of restaurants, many of which are open until late night hours. This place is like visiting Disney World, it would take days to see it all. Don’t miss this one if you are anywhere near Thackerville, Oklahoma. Check back later for more of our travel days, we will be crossing the border into Texas next, it is only one mile away.
