US.- Empire City Casino President and Chief Operating Officer Uri Clinton have resigned. The move comes almost a year after Clinton was appointed, but he will continue working with the company. Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ed Domingo will be responsible for day-to-day operations in the meantime.
Debra DeShong, the spokeswoman for MGM Resorts, said that Uri Clinton will continue to work as a consultant to support the company’s efforts to develop a major entertainment and casino facility in Yonkers, New York.
Mayor Mike Spano, who had previously praised Clinton’s work for the casino’s performance in the state, said: “MGM has a deep management bench, so we look forward to continuing to work with them in bringing more economic development to Yonkers and full gaming to Empire Casino.”
Tribal casinos to offer sports betting in New York
The Seneca Nation of Indians announced it may soon offer sports betting in its western New York casinos. The tribe would launch operations in lounges in Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Salamanca before 2020. That would let gamblers place their bets for a potential Buffalo Bills (NFL) playoff run.
“We know Buffalo is a sports town,” Seneca Gaming CEO Holly Gagnon told Buffalo Business First. “And, we know it is a very passionate sports town. That’s why we are bringing the (sports betting) lounges to the (New York) casinos.”
