The Resorts World New York casino is opening its doors earlier than expected. Although the expected date is not yet determined, the opening is set for late summer.
According to the Queens Ledger, 2,500 video lottery terminals (VLTs) will be operational – rather than the 1,600 originally slated – when the casino opens.
According to the article, with the accelerated schedule – which will now take place in two phases, rather than three – not only will more VLTs be operational when the first stage launches, but the main entry, the international buffet and the parking garage will be part of the initial opening, as well.
So, what do you think? Excited about this development? Will you visit the casino? Or does the idea of a casino in a residential neighborhood sound like a bad idea?
