What About Naskila Casino In Polk County?

With the United States Supreme Court recently ruling in favor of the tribes, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe can expand their gaming facilities in Polk County. Naskila Casino, the tribe’s current bingo hall, has been in a Texas gambling battle with state officials for years over its legality.

Now that the Supreme Court overturned the decision that the tribe’s gaming rights were governed by the Texas Restoration Act, the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe is free to build another location. The new Alabama-Coushatta Tribe casino expects to dwarf the current Naskila Casino in size, meaning more jobs and greater economic impact on the region.

The Naskila Casino offers 800 bingo based slot machines cross their 30,000 square feet of gaming space. Texas residents have plenty to be excited about for the tribe’s future casino.
