Empire Resorts sees opportunity in Supreme Court decision on sports betting

15 May 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Empire Resorts, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries) lauds the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to strike down PASPA and thereby open the door to expanded legalization of sports betting.

“We are prepared to implement sports betting as part of the gaming experience at our resort casino, Resorts World Catskills, upon the formulation of relevant regulations in New York State,” said Ryan Eller, President and Chief Executive Officer of the company. “We believe the ruling has the potential to transform how Americans bet on sports and we are one of the few New York State venues that can be authorized to host a sports pool under New York’s Gaming Act. It is our hope that New York State will be ready for New Yorkers to place legal sports bets in time for the fall football season, baseball’s World Series, or even sooner.”

The New York State Gaming Commission will need to formulate regulations to govern sports pools before the company can apply for a license to offer sports betting at Resorts World Catskills.

The company held the Grand Opening of Resorts World Catskills this past weekend from 11 May through 13 May. Headlining the festivities was a performance by legendary comedian and producer Jerry Seinfeld. The celebration will continue throughout the month of May with a performance by award-winning singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw, who is a native of Sullivan County, New York, on Friday, 18 May. The grand opening of Cellaio, an Italian steakhouse created by celebrity chef Scott Conant, will follow on 19 May.
