The grand opening of the Riverwind Casino in Norman isn't for another couple of weeks, but our camera was allowed inside Wednesday, to give you a first look at the 219,000 square foot facility.

Riverwind will be the state's largest casino.

The Chickasaw Nation has hired nearly 1,800 Oklahomans to work inside the casino's gaming floor, restaurants and concert theater.

The official ribbing cutting is set for August 10th and after that Riverwind is expecting some busy weekends ahead, especially during OU home games.

Riverwind's concert hall is still under construction, but they say it will be done in time for the Temptations to take the stage August 25th.
