The Resort World Casino New York City has opened, in South Ozone Park Queens. The Aqueduct Racetrack is now home to over 4500 slot machines and 200 electronic table games like craps, roulette, and baccarat. There is currently no table betting as this type of gambling is prohibited under New York law but, Governor Andrew Cuomo says he’s looking into it.
The video lottery terminals also known as vlt’s, offer an alternative to gamblers who are used to travelling to Yonker’s, Empire City casino and Atlantic City in New Jersey. Access to the racino is convenient by car and subway and its close proximity to Kennedy Airport make it a prime spot for visitors coming into the city.
