Welcome to MGM Empire City

We’re proud that Empire City Casino has joined the MGM Resorts family. MGM is committed to the communities we serve, and to creating world-class entertainment destinations at all of our facilities around the world.

In Yonkers, transforming to a full casino would create thousands of high-quality jobs and millions of dollars in new revenue for public education in communities across New York. In fact, a recent poll indicates that Yonkers residents strongly support the conversion of Empire City into a full commercial casino. The best is yet to come.

Support Full-Scale Casinos Downstate

Sign the Petition

MGM Resorts, the new owner of Empire City Casino, is committed to investing in local economies, creating jobs, and helping fund quality education in communities across New York State. I support MGM Resorts’ efforts to bring a full-scale casino and entertainment destination to Yonkers.

Downstate Gaming Conversion

Greater Potential for New York City's Gaming Market

The New York City gaming market is letting gaming entertainment dollars get away. The lack of quality gaming options, including traditional slot machines, live table games and sports betting is sending those dollars out-of-state. All market indicators show that the State of New York is not maximizing potential gaming tax revenue.

  • 5,855 Additional Direct Hires
  • $2.3 Billion in Additional Economic Impacts
  • New York generates just $28,245 in Gross Gaming Revenue per 1,000 visitors (Pittsburgh generates $244,667 per 1,000 visitors and Chicago generates $61,991 per 1,000 visitors)
Legislative Proposal

We are working with state lawmakers to bring a full-scale casino and entertainment destination to Yonkers. MGM Resorts is committed to investing in local economies, creating jobs, and helping fund quality education in communities across New York State.

Keep Tourism Dollars in New York

Current State Of Play

Outdated laws in the state are preventing New York from generating more than $1 billion in new tax revenue and creating new economic opportunities for thousands of New Yorkers. And the state is losing this possible new revenue to other major cities across the U.S. who have embraced the benefits of gaming. The time to act is now.

Tax Dollars Flowing Out of State

Surrounding states including New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania are attracting gaming entertainment dollars from New York, capturing more of the competitive Northeast market and more revenue to support their policy priorities.
