Groundbreaking For New York City Slot Parlor Is Thursday

Feather News

The groundbreaking for a facility that will hold the first 1,600 VLT slot machines at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y., will be on Thursday.

Resorts World New York, as it will be known, will eventually grow to include about 4,500 VLT slot machines.

Resorts World is about 130 miles from the Mohegan Sun and will likely be the casino's next competitor since the first phase of the slot parlor is expected to be completed in May.

Genting New York LLC, was awarded a 30-year franchise during the summer to build and operate the slot parlor. Genting is a subsidiary of the Malaysian company that financed the building of Foxwoods casino.
