Two upstate state-licensed casinos have opened sports betting operations, while two others expect to open later this summer, including del Lago Resort & Casino.
Lance Young, new general manager of del Lago, said the casino submitted the required sports betting information to the state Gaming Commission. That includes details on internal controls, a plan of operation and house rules.
“We are working with the Commission for approval, which is expected soon,” Young said. “While an official opening date has not been set yet, construction is moving along with the grand opening slated for later this summer.”
Tioga Downs Casino & Resort in Nichols opened its sports betting operation July 19. It offers a 2,600-square-foot betting area with eight betting windows, 27 video displays, 14 self-serve betting kiosks and three sports tickers.
Bettors will be able to use 12 lounge seats, seven high tables, two drink rails, and there is seating for more than 50 people.
