ROLAND, Okla. (AP) - The Cherokee Nation is marking the topping out of construction on an $80 million casino and hotel project.

The new Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland is slated to be finished this summer and bring 100 new jobs to the region. The tribe marked the building milestone at a ceremony earlier this week.

The casino will offer 850 electronic games, table games and a poker room. Guests can choose from two dining options: a grab-and-go café and Las Vegas-style buffet.

Plans for the project include a resort-style hotel with 120 rooms and convention space to host conferences, special events, weddings and trade shows.
