Ada Gaming Center is a small casino in Ada, Oklahoma. Owned by the Chickasaw Nation, it is one of many small casinos throughout the region, 18 per their website. Since Ada Gaming Center is such a tiny casino with few frills, we will spend some time on it and also explore the entire region.
However, we will still look closer at the gaming, dining options, and recurring promotions at the casino before we explore nearby accommodations and attractions. And you can place a winning bet that you will find a few more nearby casinos, perhaps with even more frills, such as the Artesian.
So, if you are headed to the Ada area and would like to gain insight on Ada Gaming Center and other fun things to do in the area, look no further. Let’s explore the gaming center and all of what Ada and the surrounding region offers, starting with its dynamic casino gaming.
Overview of Ada Gaming Center
Ada Gaming Center is a 24/7 casino at 1500 N. Country Club Road in Ada, Oklahoma. It comprises just over 9,000 feet of gaming space but it features slot machines, table gaming, and poker tables. You will find little in terms of the actual gaming options, but they have something for everyone.
And since Ada Gaming Center does not feature accommodations, but you’ll find plenty of them around town, along with a solid selection of area attractions. We have set aside a section for both hotels in the area, plus a few cool vacation destinations. If you’re looking for more than just the casino, read those sections.
Casino Games at Ada Gaming Center
Despite its small size, you will find excellent variety at the Ada Gaming Center. It comprises just over 9,000 square feet, but it contains 340 slot machines, keno, some table games, along with three poker tables.
Offered table games include Ultimate Texas Hold‘em and blackjack. Plus, you will find both limit and no-limit games of Texas Hold‘em.
As for the slot machines, minimum bets start at just one penny along with a few larger denominations.
The clear upside here is the diversity of gaming, even in a small casino like Ada. The downside is that you won’t find every game here at both the slots and tables. For the slots, odds are you’ll find the more popular games, so they will have something that suits your liking, guaranteed.
And if you’re a card shark, you’re in luck, which is unusual for smaller casinos like Ada. And although they offer little, it’s still better than searching aimlessly for a casino that does offer them.
Double Down Grill
Since Ada is a small casino, you will only find one dining option called Double Down Grill. Sources say little regarding the types of food and drinks offered.
However, if you plan on staying awhile at Ada Gaming Center, odds are, Double Down Grill will curb your appetite.
So, if you need a drink between or following your favorite casino games, look no further.
Ada Gaming Center Promotions
Ada Gaming Center’s promotions are some of the best around and among the most premier in the Chickasaw Nation. Here, you will find promotions like Gas and Cash, where you can win a share of $8,000 that will put some extra fuel in your tank—especially if you made that road trip to the area.
Other promotions include $1k Thunder Thursdays, where you can win your share of $1k in cash prizes every Thursday.
Of course, the above are just a few examples of what you will discover promotion-wise at Ada Gaming Center. Always check the website before you head over for more insight on current promotions, which also include Happy Hour Promos at the bar along with a stellar array of drink features.
In short, Ada Gaming Center boasts limited slots and table games, along with a fair number of promotions, along with a dining option, but not much else. Therefore, we will gear the rest of today’s post to accommodations that you can find in the area, along with nearby attractions.

Unfortunately, Ada Gaming Center has no actual accommodations, so you will need to look toward town for some solid options. Below, we have listed our favorites.
Starting at $109 per night at the time of this writing, the Hampton Inn and Suites is always the “safe pick” here, given its reputation. And the venue in Ada does not disappoint, featuring suites, family rooms, and non-smoking rooms.
The La Quinta Inn and Suites offers a more cost-effective deal in the area, starting at just $86 per night. Also a two-star venue, the La Quinta offers non-smoking rooms, family rooms, and suites, much like its Hampton Inn competitor.
However, some rooms include a fireplace. And hotel amenities as a whole include free parking, Wi-Fi, a pool, fitness center, free breakfast, pet-friendly rooms, free stays for kids, plus a business center.
SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western is yet another good option in Ada. Property amenities include free parking, breakfast, free stay for kids, pet-friendly rooms, a business center, and meeting rooms.
The rooms themselves include a few more amenities that include blackout curtains among its cable TV, bath and shower, and coffee makers. A more cost-effective option than the previous two venues, SureStay Plus starts at just $75 per night, per its page on TripAdvisor.
Again, there are plenty of awesome places to stay in Ada, but the three listed above have reputable names, plus proven track records not just in Ada, but all across America. If you’re looking to set up base camp, many hotels in the area will do just fine.
Let’s begin with the nearby Artesian Hotel, Casino, & Spa. This venue is about 25 miles from the Ada Gaming Center, and it’s also a Chickasaw-operated outlet. If you’re looking for more than just a casino, the Artesian more than has you covered.
Sure, you will stumble upon the casino and its vibrant floor, along with limited table gaming akin to what they have at Ada. However, the Artesian offers a few more dining options, meeting space, catering, and a plethora of outstanding amenities.
Just a few of its amenities include a pool and bathhouse, a spa, fitness center, and retail options.
However, if you’re looking to stay local, you will find more than a few decent options right in Ada.

Catch more family fun in Ada over at the Lazer Zone. Head over to 733 W 15th and W 14th in Ada and you’ll find the venue. Inside, they offer miniature golf, batting cages, lazer tag (yep, spelled with a Z), and bowling. If you are in town with your family, you will likely spend hours at this venue.
As you can see from today’s post, Ada Gaming Center is a smaller venue featuring mainly slot machines with a few select table games, so you’re not getting much at this Chickasaw-operated casino. However, 25 miles down the road, you will find a nice resort at the Artesian.
