Oneida Indian Nation is preparing for the official relaunch of its sports betting offerings available on the premises of its tribal casino venues. The special areas go by the name of Lounge with Caesars Sports are expected to reopen on July 22 and bring back individuals loving wagering on sports events and the entertainment this gives them.
The Native American tribe oversees three tribal casino venues sprinkled across the State of New York. Those are the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, Point Place Casino in the Bridgeport area of Sullivan, and Yellow Brick Road Casino & Sports Book in Chittenango. All three of them come with premium sportsbooks up for grabs and players have preferred them in the past.
It could be recalled that last summer saw the official greenlighting of in-person sports wagering across New York State’s commercial and tribal casino venues. Local players were excited to have the chance to place their wagers in a legal manner using the premium sports wagering zones within the casinos. Tribal venues were among those venues offering premium sports betting also supporting their communities.
Four months ago, these venues had to close temporarily, as physical distancing was and still is the recommended practice. Over this period, individuals were deprived of the opportunity to place their wagers and potentially win big as a result of them. This is going to change very soon, as the tribal nation is paving the way for the safe reopening of its three sports wagering lounges. This happens at the right time.
The Major League Baseball season is expected to relaunch on July 23 giving players many more events to place their wagers on. The end of this month is also projected to see the official launch of the NBA basketball approaches. These diverse baseball and basketball sports tournaments will make it possible for sports wagering to return on a state level.
The unprecedented situation saw the cancelation and postponing of various tournaments all over the world. This left betting fans without any events to bet on, or with very sparse offerings. Virtual sports have experienced quite the surge of popularity, as they offer betting opportunities despite the circumstances and whenever the player might feel like wagering.
Individuals interested in in-person sports betting will have to respect the Safer Together protocol in place. The safety of both players and casino staff members is of utmost importance, calling for the implementation of special measures. The safety protocols in question will include wearing of face masks on the premises of the sports betting lounge and the casino as a whole.
Moreover, individuals traveling from one of the states exhibiting complicated health situation won’t be allowed in the venues. Sports betting enthusiasts will also have to present their ID upon entering the casino floor. Oneida Indian Nation also clarified that the food corner of the lounges will work at 50-percent capacity with the mandatory physical distance between tables.
