If you are gambling in the state of New York (rather than just the famous city itself) then you will have plenty of options on offer. There are several sorts of casinos where you can go gambling in New York state: the Class III tribal Casinos, which offer table games and slot machines which pay out slips of paper to be exchanged by a cashier instead of cash; Class II tribal casinos, which offer electronic gaming machines which look like slot machines, but are actually more like bingo machines; and the racinos, which feature slot machine type video lottery machines which also pay out receipts. If you have previously visited the state and used the Opus Casino Cruise Lines, you will unfortunately not be able to do so any longer as this casino is now permanently closed down.
For casinos outside of the city, you can go for the Akwesane Mohawk Casino, in the town it is named after with two restaurants and a wide range of games. Batavia Downs Gaming in Batavia features live harness racing from August to December, as well as the Video Gaming Machines (VGMs) which are allowed at racetracks. The Finger Lakes Gaming and Racetrack in Farmington is a place to watch and bet on live thoroughbred racing from mid April through to late November, with VGMs on site. The Fairgrounds Gaming and Raceway in Hamburg also has VGMs, as well as harness racing from January through to July. Lakeside Gaming in Seneca Falls is a Class II casino that does not permit smoking, and there are also no restaurants on site, the same as the Lakeside Gaming in Union Springs. The Mohawk Bingo Palace in Hogansburg offers Class II gaming as well as bingo, and has one restaurant for you to enjoy. The Monticello Gaming and Raceway has VGMs, a restaurant, and harness racing all year round. The Saratoga Gaming and Raceway in Saratoga Springs features harness racing from March to December, while the Tioga Downs in Nicholls features it from May to September. There are five Seneca casinos where you can go gambling in New York state, with two of them in Salamanca, one in Buffalo Creek, one in Irving, and one in Niagra Falls, between them offering twelve different restaurants to make sure that your gastronomic needs are taken care of. The Turning Stone Casino Resort is in Verona with fourteen restaurants and a huge range of casino games to choose from, as well as three golf courses and a showroom. Finally, Vernon Downs has harness racing between April and November.
In the city of New York itself there are only two choices: the Resorts World New York in Jamaica, with thoroughbred racing as well as VGMs, and two restaurants, and the Empire City at Yonkers Raceway with three restaurants, VGMs, and harness racing all year round. So, no matter what your gambling tastes are, you will be able to find something to suit them if you look around the state, particularly if you are heading around the Buffalo area where most of the casinos are concentrated.
