The three commercial casinos in New York totaled US$764k from poker rooms in July.
US.- The New York State Gaming Commission reported that the three commercial casinos in the state reached US$764k during last month’s operations. The facilities have been reporting underwhelming results when compared to the expectations.
Rivers Casino and Resort was the top scorer as it achieved US$469k in revenue from its 16 poker tables, as Card Player revealed. Moreover del Lago Resort and Casino was in second place with US$220k from its 14 tables, whilst Tioga Downs Casino’s 12 tables managed to get US$75k.
Earlier this month, state regulators said that the three casinos only contributed with US$50.2 million so far. Whilst they didn’t specify how much tax revenue was expected, the number was supposed to be significantly higher. The money that New York gets from casino goes directly to social funds like education and property tax relief. Despite the shortfall, state officials said that the number is not worrying as the facilities have created multiple construction and regular jobs.
Early next year, Montreign Resort Casino in Sullivan County is supposed to open its doors in the Empire State. The casino is the priciest of the new commercial casinos in upstate New York, and will feature 14-16 table poker room, the news outlet confirmed.
