Oneida Indian Nation revealed the official launch date for sports wagering at its third tribal casino resort. Yellow Brick Road Casino is about to cut the ribbon of its brand new sports wagering lounge on September 4 and welcome the first betting enthusiasts eagerly anticipating it. The tribal casino resort joins five sports wagering locations across New York State that greenlighted legal wagering on sports events earlier this summer.
New York players all around the state have the opportunity to bet legally on sports events, bringing them windfalls. As many as five locations have already greenlighted sports wagering operation teaming up with some of the leading international gaming giants, aiming to meet the expectations of local players.
September 4 Sees Official Launch
Four commercial and seven tribal casino venues have a permission to oversee legal sports wagering and for the time being three commercial and two tribal casino locations offer their sportsbooks. Those are Del Lago Resort Casion near Waterloo in the Finger Lakes, Rivers Casino Resort in Schenectady, as well as Tioga Downs west of Binghamton in the Southern Tier. Oneida Indian Nation manages the two tribal casino venues.
Now it is time for the official launch of Yellow Brick Road Casino’s sportsbook that is once again possible thanks to Caesars Entertainment. The international leader powers all three of the sports lounges managed by the Native American tribe. Chittenango is about to welcome the new offering at the beginning of September and there is less than a week left until this happens. Locals are already excited to see the brand new offering, as rendering have sparked their interest.
The Lounge with Caesars Sports is going to see its official first hours of operation and the first bet place in the area. Starting at 11 a.m. the new lounge would showcase premium amenities for all betting enthusiasts ready to try their luck at the tribal casino venue. It all happens just in time for the start of the NFL season that would be greenlighted on September 5.
More Players May Enter the Field
What should be pointed out is that the sports wagering lounge would be the largest one on a state level, spanning over 8,000 square feet. For the time being, sports wagering in New York is in-person only and mobile bets are still considered illegal. This could change next year, as lawmakers take their time and come up with the most appropriate set of rules governing the online betting offering.
As a result, New York State would become a more competitive rival to neighboring states that have already approved well-rounded sports wagering. Turning Stone Casino Resort in Verona, Oneida County, and Point Place Casino in Bridgeport, Madison County are the other tribal casino resorts overseen by Oneida Indian Nation.
The Seneca Nation of Indians recently posted a job offer seeking Executive Director of Sportsbook and Interactive Gaming in Niagara Falls. This could indicate interest towards developing its own sportsbook that would be implemented at Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, and Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in Buffalo, New York.
