Yellow Brick Road Casino is working on an extensive renovation and an entirely new phase of its operation, as Oneida Indian Nation recently revealed. The casino hotspot of Chittenango is undergoing an extensive renovation, as well as the introduction of many new offerings over the months leading up to February 2020. The project is part of a larger US$10-million investment in the casino complex.
Gaming expansion and remaining relevant in an ever-changing field is essential for the gambling operation of every venue. Tribal casinos are among the preferred gaming hotspots and they compete for casino patrons with the four commercial casino locations in Upstate New York. Keeping up with them is a task that needs constant attention and work, which has led to the expansion announcement.
February 2020 Sees Completed Expansion
The expansion is about to introduce a wider variety of gambling opportunities on the premises of Yellow Brick Road Casino. This would include both slot machines and sports wagering stations for the individuals ready to place their wagers on their favorite teams. This is about to make the casino location even more competitive on a regional level, as it would bring legal sports betting on site.
It is no secret that New York State is currently working on its sports betting offerings and tribal casinos are on track to launching their own sports betting lounges. A sports wagering offering available at Yellow Brick Road Casino would make Chittenango a popular destination for individuals of the neighboring communities. The tribal casino venue introduced earlier this year The Lounge, a brand new experience powered by Caesars Sports.
Long with the gaming offerings introduced, the family-friendly factor would also be bolstered. The expansion eyes the introduction of a special indoor golf range for the individuals looking forward to some golfing action in the warmer months of 2020. In addition to that, the location is also going to welcome a brand new bar area for the individuals ready to make a night of it.
US$10m Investment in the Casino
Moreover, the expansion is going to bring several dining options able to meet the high expectations of locals and people visiting the premium casino complex. For the people looking for a fun time on the premises of Yellow Brick Road, the expansion is about to introduce an extensive bowling center, as well as more gaming opportunities to the likes of shuffleboard and pool.
The expansion commenced at the beginning of June and it is expected to come to an end in February 2020, bringing an entirely new exterior of the building as well. It could be recalled that the casino used to have a liquor store, but it was closed for good, as to accommodate the gaming floor expansion and the introduction of the sports lounge. Investment in their properties is a common practice for the tribal casino operator.
Earlier this year, Oneida Indian Nation invested in the expansion of its Point Place Casino located in Bridgeport, resulting in a wider and more spacious casino venue for all patrons, as well as new gaming offerings. Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona was also subjected to expansion with both a gambling and family-friendly expansion taking place there. The adjacent hotel building saw an upgrade of its accommodation.
