Authorities gave the all-clear Thursday morning following a reported bomb threat at Tulsa’s Osage Casino, which prompted an evacuation.

Dispatchers say the Osage County Sheriff's Office called around 1 a.m for Tulsa Police assistance.

Tribal police immediately evacuated the casino while investigating the threat.

Officers say they searched, but did not find anything suspicious.

This is the second time in the past 24 hours that police had to be called in to investigation a potential bomb threat at a US-based casino.

On Wednesday morning, the Las Vegas bomb squad was called after a suspicious package had been left in the lobby of the Silver Sevens Casino.

This was later determined to be a beer cooler left by a drunk guest.
