Cuomo strikes deal to settle top gaming resorts in NY

In an effort to bring back to life an inactive economy, the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, closed an agreement with state lawmakers to authorize new resort-style casinos.

The negotiation will improve and update the state’s constitution in allowing public, non Native American casino gambling, as until now, table and slot machine gambling is only permitted on Native American tribal land. Four Las-Vegas style casinos in the Hudson Valley, the Binghamton area and the Albany region have already initiated the arrangement.

Cumo added that the agreement will “establish world-class destination gaming resorts to attract tourists to upstate New York”.
