Oklahoma Casinos, Wedding Chapels Busy On 11-11-11

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - From casinos to wedding chapels, Oklahomans are feeling lucky.

Friday is the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011. The rare alignment of numbers - 11-11-11 - is being used by several Oklahoma casinos to lure in players, and it's also proving to be a popular wedding date.

The Lucky Star Casino in El Reno will hold $11,000 cash drawings for 11 hours. The Riverwind Casino in Norman is giving away $11,000 in cash and prizes from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Oklahoma City's Remington Park racetrack and casino will give away a cash prize of $1,111.11 following the last race.

At the Arbuckle Wedding Chapel near Davis, seven couples are scheduled to exchange vows. Owner Joan Bratcher says that many bookings in one day "is unbelievable."
