    Largest Land Based Casino In America -WinStar World Casino
    By Christina Applebaum

    The largest casino in the United States used to be Foxwood Resorts located in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Though the Foxwood boasts over 400,000 square feet of casino action, they were replaced as the largest in America in 2013 by WinStar World Casino and Resort making the Foxwood the second largest casino in the United States.

    WinStar is located in a little place called Thackerville, Oklahoma and belongs to the Chickasaw Nation, if you happen to be coming from the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas, no sooner than you cross the Red River and you are there. WinStar completed their expansion in late 2013 which dwarfed the Foxwood with WinStar's 519,000 square feet of gaming space.

    Currently the largest casino in the world, which is The Venetian Macao which can be found in Macau, China, has 550,000 square feet of games which puts WinStar not too far behind. I do believe WinStar may have their eye on that moniker as well. (that moniker being worlds largest casino - not just America's largest casino) WinStar is about an hour and a half drive from where I live and I do indeed frequent it often, and from what I've seen I don't believe the additions that WinStar has been continually making will stop any time soon. As a matter of fact I'm certain that one part or another of this casino has been under construction since I started playing there four years ago.

    Lyndon Stromberg designed the exterior of WinStar, he worked on the MGM Grand and the The Venetian in Las Vegas as well, and I can tell you the atmosphere gives you the sense of a real Las Vegas casino - only much larger! Now, I have been to Las Vegas and though it is probably the largest cluster of casinos in the U.S., there is no single casino in Vegas as large as Winstar. Inside the casino you will be swept around the world as each section of WinStar is named and decorated to reflect various world destinations such as Rome, Madrid, London and many more. The outside of WinStar Casino is impressive in its own right as it is covered with replicas of the Arc de Triomphe, Rome's Coliseum and London's Big Ben in accordance with its "world casino" theme.

    Planning a vacation in your RV touring The U.S.A? Put Thackerville, Oklahoma on your itinerary and stay at WinStar's RV Park and enjoy all the amenities of home such as laundry facilities, WiFi, showers and maybe a few ammenities you don't have at home such as 24-hour security and access to their clubhouse pavilion. Shuttles run every few minutes 24-hours a day to take you from the RV Park to the casino and back.

    If you are looking to play a few holes of golf on your vacation, WinStar has a World Class 27- hole golf course that caters to all player's skill levels. You can even get help with your game at the Winstar Golf academy.

    In short whatever kind of entertainment you are looking for WinStar is sure to offer it, Bingo Halls, Poker Rooms, hundreds of thousands of square feet of Slots and other Electronic Games, not to mention their own Bull Riding Arena, Spa and Luxury Hotel (as well as the WinStar Inn just up the road a piece if your looking for a more economical choice for lodging). You can also enjoy big name concerts and shows on the weekends.

    Food won't be a problem as WinStar houses Over 13 restaurants including a "Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill" and the brand new Gran Via Buffet.

    I have to say that in writing this review I'm starting to feel a road trip coming on if you know what I mean. WinStar is truly one of my favorite places to play and for sure is the largest casino I have ever seen, if you have never been and find yourself near the Texas- Oklahoma state line area, I highly recommend you check it out!
