The Arkansas Racing Commission has accepted casino licence applications. The first applicant is Downstream Development Authority of the Oklahoma Quapaw Tribe. The Oklahoma-based group has submitted its proposal to obtain a licence for Jefferson County.

“This is beyond just dollars and cents for the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma. This is the original homeland. This is a full-scale first-class commercial casino resort so I think that the people of Jefferson County, central Arkansas and really this part of the country are going to be excited about having this built in Jefferson County, Arkansas,” Nate Steel, a legal counsel for the applicant said.

“Within the next few years of operation, close to $10 million annually — that’s just the direct tax revenue. We’ll be looking at about 2,000 jobs during construction and 1,000 permanent jobs after that,” he added.
