SeatGeek brings leading fan experience to Oklahoma’s two largest casinos
Partnership with WinStar World Casino and Resort and Riverwind Casino is ticketing platform’s first in the casino entertainment space
NEW YORK, NY (July 23, 2020) — SeatGeek and the Chickasaw Nation today announced a partnership that will see SeatGeek serve as the Official Ticketing Partner for events at both WinStar World Casino and Resort and Riverwind Casino.
Fans attending events at WinStar and Riverwind will find a high-quality ticketing experience, making it easier than ever before to purchase, transfer and enter events at the venues. Both WinStar and Riverwind will take advantage of SeatGeek’s best-in-class mobile experience, giving patrons the ability to buy and share tickets right on their phone, while also having access to other helpful features like the ability to book a hotel room directly in the SeatGeek app.
“Our focus on providing world-class entertainment continues through this new partnership with SeatGeek,” said Jack Parkinson, WinStar World Casino and Resort General Manager. “We hope SeatGeek’s enhanced mobile platform and its integration with our on-property casino amenities provide a streamlined and immersive experience that exceeds patrons’ expectations at WinStar World Casino and Resort.”
WinStar and Riverwind are two of the top live entertainment destinations in Oklahoma, hosting a variety of events annually, from concerts to comedy to magic shows. WinStar World Casino and Resort, located just across the border from Texas and a popular destination for those living in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, has hosted top performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Brad Paisley and Pitbull. Riverwind Casino, located in Norman and just south of Oklahoma City, has welcomed a variety of acts like Josh Turner, REO Speedwagon and Ken Jeong in recent times.
“Our patrons value the best entertainment experience at our Showplace Theatre and that experience starts with the ticketing purchase process,” said Justin Yahola, Riverwind Casino General Manager. “We hope this partnership with SeatGeek and the technologies offered through the platform will add to the immersive casino experience and unmatched service our patrons have come to expect at Riverwind Casino.”
The two venues are the first casinos to join SeatGeek’s growing list of clients. While SeatGeek tickets some of the biggest brands in sports – teams like the Dallas Cowboys and Liverpool FC – in recent months SeatGeek has also broken into a number of new verticals, including tennis, golf, lacrosse and college football. WinStar and Riverwind are yet another example of SeatGeek’s efforts to scale the business across different venue types.
“WinStar and Riverwind are two of the top-rated casinos in the country, and they not only provide a great experience but also bring in an incredible list of talent every year,” said Jeff Ianello, EVP of Client Partnerships. “We look forward to delivering a much improved experience to their visitors, and to work with the Chickasaw Nation to continue to expand SeatGeek’s presence in the casino entertainment space.”
