Lake Texoma Casinos – Our Personal Reviews

No Lake Texoma guide is complete unless you have a list of the area’s best casinos. When it comes to Lake Texoma casinos, you won’t be disappointed as there are several casinos near Lake Texoma that we think you will enjoy.

Here is a list of the ones located in the Lake Texoma area and our review of the casino.

Let’s get started.

First, all of the Lake Texoma casinos are located on the Oklahoma side of the lake. The state of Texas has yet to legalize gambling. We doubt they ever will, but that is an article for another day.

Lake Texoma Casinos

Let’s get started with our list of the Top Lake Texoma Casinos.

Chocktaw Casino & Resort

The Choctaw Casino and Resort is the premier casino in the Lake Texoma area. Even though Winstar is bigger we listed Choctaw first because it is closer to the lake area.

The floor of this casino is huge. They recently opened up the Sky Tower Hotel, which added 1,000 rooms to bring the total number of available rooms to a whopping 1,700 rooms.

The expansion area also added 3,000 slot machines and 40 new table games, bringing the total to 7,400 slot machines and over 100 table games.

But there is more to Choctaw Casino and Resort. If you are hungry there, we are sure, you’ll find something you’ll like in one of their sixteen restaurants. There’s the Butterfields Buffet, Guy Fieri’s American Kitchen and Bar, Gilley’s, and much more.

Megastar Casino

Megastar Casino is one of our favorite Lake Texoma casinos. Megastar only has slot machines. They feature over 600 of the most popular electronic gaming machines. They include Lucky Ducky, Money Bags, Crazy Cherry, and many more, including my favorite, Neptune’s Hunt for Gold.

Megastar Casino Lake Texoma

They have a small restaurant that is inexpensive. The food is not too bad. I usually order the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. There is also a convenience store connected to the casino.

The bar is not too big, but you can easily get a drink when needed. All the bartenders we have come across are exceptionally good, and the service is top-notch. Our favorite bartender when we go during the weekends is Manny.

This is one of our favorites because it’s close to our lake house in Cardinal Cove. It only takes us about 18 minutes to get there.

West Bay Casino and Resort

West Bay Casino and Resort is the newest Chickasaw Nation casino on Lake Texoma. You will enjoy slot machines and table games in a smoke-free atmosphere here. They offer over 275 of the latest slot machines with progressive play and huge payouts. Several tables are available where you can play Blackjack or 3-card poker.

The resort part of West Bay Casino includes single king rooms and double queen rooms. If you are in the mood for something a little different, try one of their premier cabins just across the street from the casino.

Texoma Casino

Texoma Casino is located just east of Kingston on US-70. This is one of the smaller Lake Texoma casinos.

It’s an 8,800-square-foot casino with over 370 electronic games. It has a small bar, and I do mean small. Only 2-3 people can stand at the counter to order a drink. A convenience store is connected to the casino.

We don’t have a player club card for this casino, so we know nothing about their rewards program.

What We LikeWhat We Don’t Like
Usually not crowdedA bit dinghy, but they are working on it
Excellent staffThe selection of machines is mediocre
Easy to get to, off US-70Small bar

Madill Gaming Center

This Lake Texoma casino is in Madill, OK, near Kingston and the Lake area. This is the smallest of all the Lake Texoma casinos.

It has about 100 electronic games, and that’s it. No table games, no bar. There is a convenience store next door.

We’ve been here a few times when we have gone to town for dining or errands. We have never bothered to get a players’ club card, so we know nothing about their promotions.

I can’t recall the last time I won anything at this casino. Others seem to do well. The staff is very good and attentive.

What We LikeWhat We Don’t Like
Not crowdedCan be very smokey
In Madill, close to shoppingThe selection of machines is poor

Winstar Casino and Resort

I left Winstar for last just because it’s the furthest from the Lake Texoma area, even though we still consider it a Lake Texoma casino.

To say the Winstar casino is huge would be an understatement. It is massive, and its 370,000 square feet of casino floor makes it the largest casino in the world.

They have nine gaming plazas named after famous destinations (Madrid, Cairo, London, New York, etc.) They have 100 table games and more than 8,600 electronic gaming machines.

The Winstar World Casino Hotel is huge and world-class. They also have a couple of smaller motels nearby and an RV park.

Plenty of restaurants for just about any palette and an event center for concerts and conferences.
