The first shipments of video lottery terminals have been received by Resorts World New York as the racino at Aqueduct Race Track gears up for its October opening.
The VLTs will be installed and tested on the racinos gaming floor during the next few weeks, the company said.
The first phase of the racino project at Aqueduct is expected to be completed by October with 2,280 VLTs, entertainment space and dining options.
The second phase, slated to open by the end of the year, will bring another 2,245 VLTs and more dining and event space.
This is an exciting development. We are on the path towards creating a world-class entertainment destination, said Resorts World Casino New York City President Mike Speller. The video lottery terminals, which are a cornerstone of our casino, have been in our minds eye for nearly a year, and we are happy that the public will soon share our vision. We are in the final stage and are thrilled that Resorts World Casino New York City will welcome its guests to an optimum experience.
