As you may already know, New York is home to a number of casinos, both public and private. Plus, due to the industry playing a major role in tourism, even the government is helping improve New York’s gambling operators.
Now, another big-time casino will be opening its doors to the public – the Resorts World Catskills. The name came from the 18-story hotel tower in Thompson, Sullivan County where it was called the Catskills of the Borscht Belt era.
The hotel tower is already known for its luxury, excitement, and especially, entertainment. With the addition of the new casino, business will boom in the next months or even years.
What They Offer
There are many casinos in New York, and Resorts World Catskills would have to compete against all of them. The said casino prides itself with their wide-range of table games, with more than 150 games and 2,150 slot machines.
If you were to compare it with another casino, it would be the Empire City Casino with 5,222 video-lottery terminals located in the Yonkers Raceway.
Resorts World Catskills is, however, looking to increase the number of slot games they offer to cater to high rollers. What’s more, you just have to travel 90 miles from New York City to get to this casino.
Political figures such as Governor Cuomo looks forward to this development. Plus, you’ll get the option of 332 all-suite rooms in the hotel tower, as well as villas with pools which cater to big spenders and high rollers.
The Future of The Casino
Overall, the cost of the casino and hotel is about $900 million although there are still parts of the building under construction.
You can also expect entertainment to improve in this area. This is due to the owner’s desire to make the building cater more to families with shopping areas and other means of entertainment.
One of this is the indoor waterpark planned to be opened to the public in the building, which is to be called the Kartrite Hotel & Indoor Waterpark.
Another entertainment feature is the “Monster” golf course that is announced to be reopened at the Concord after getting a new design based on the Rees Jones course.
What’s to Expect
Resorts World Catskills is expected to be the center of the gaming market in the Northeast and is expected to continue doing so in the future.
It is also the 20th casino in New York although some of them have failed to meet the expectations of the public.
While this may bring tremendous pressure to the citizens, Resorts World hopefully fulfills their mission to compete with other casinos for customers as an established competitor.
With the addition of this new casino, entertainment will improve in New York and the history of gambling is continued. Not everyone expects it to be the best among the casinos, but supporters at least expect it to succeed in its venture.
