Oklahoma: Most casinos won’t take gamble on reopening Emily Collins, 8-ABC-Tulsa · May 6, 2020 at 1:46 am Ready to hit the jackpot? I wouldn’t bet on it just yet. Casinos across Oklahoma are taking their time cashing in on Gov. Stitt’s phased reopening. Many claim opening for business in the middle of a global pandemic is too risky no matter how you roll the dice. “Our top priority is health and safety and anything past that is secondary,” said Jason Salsman, press secretary for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. “And we’ll worry about that once health and safety is taken care of.” Salsman said a reopening date has yet to be set for the nation’s nine gaming sites.
