Greater Potential for New York’s Gaming Market

The New York gaming market is letting 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.

A Full-Scale Gaming License at Empire City Casino Means:

  • Over 10,000 new jobs, including more than 2,000 direct hires
  • A HUGE $1 billion economic boost that’s critical to New York’s recovery
  • Replacing dated electronic games with live-dealer table games, Vegas-style slots and retail sports betting
  • Exciting new amenities, providing our guests with a top-in-class entertainment experience

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Outdated laws in the state are preventing New York from generating more than $1 billion in new tax revenue and creating new economic opportunities for thousands of New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.

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.
