The Iowa Tribe is the latest to announce plans for a casino and resort complex in the Oklahoma City area.

A business partner for the tribe says it will develop and manage a casino, hotel and golf course on land on Route 66 about seven miles west of Chandler. The casino is to open in early 2007 with 15-hundred electronic games, 40 table games and a poker room.

The casino is the fifth announced within 30 miles of Oklahoma City. The Chickasaw Nation plans to upgrade its casinos near Newcastle and Norman; The Citizen Potawatomi Nation is building a casino and hotel near Shawnee; and the Sac and Fox Nation is planning a casino, hotel and movie theater near Chandler.
