Oklahoma: WinStar World Casino and Resorts opens Lucas Oil Live venue

November 2, 2023

The entertainment center is the result of a partnership with the Indianapolis-based company.

Oklahoma’s WinStar World Casino and Resort has debuted Lucas Oil Live, its new performance venue, according to a local news report from Fox 25.

The new destination is the result of a partnership between casino resort officials and Indianapolis-based Lucas Oil Products.

Part of the agreement included naming rights for Lucas Oil Live, according to the local report.

The new entertainment venue features a 6,500-seating capacity within its 250,000-square-foot space, along with a 140-decibel loud-speaker system and two 32-foot-by-18-foot LED video screens.

Guests can take advantage of Lucas Oil Live’s VIP, Club and Suite seating. The venue also offers a VIP lounge designed for groups, concerts and large events.

WinStar’s Lucas Oil Live opening is part of a larger expansion project across the resort. Other additions to the property include a WinStar Spa, a pool complex, a spa tower and extensive renovations to the existing WinStar Golf Club.

Lucas Oil Live will welcome several notable entertainers through the rest of the year, including The Beach Boys, Leon Bridges, Smokey Robinson, Tim McGraw, Adam Sandler, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blake Shelton.

WinStar World Casino and Resort GM Jack Parkinson shared his enthusiasm with local news by saying, "Lucas Oil Live elevates our ability to provide the best live entertainment for patrons who want to make memories seeing their favorite performers and extends the unforgettable experience our patrons have grown to appreciate with every trip to WinStar.

“This world-class venue enables us to attract the biggest names in entertainment. We have deep appreciation for the naming rights partnership with Lucas Oil that helped make Lucas Oil Live a reality."
