The Cherokee Nation continues to expand its gaming operations.
It says it will spend nearly $78 million in profits for projects at two of its casino's.
One of them is the Cherokee Casino Resort in Catoosa, which is undergoing a $125 million expansion. When it is done, 450 jobs will be created.
And 500 jobs will be added at the tribe's casino in West Siloam Springs, which is also undergoing a $108 million expansion.
That expansion is expected to be finished next year.
