Dubbed, Times Square Casino, the 190,000-square-foot first-floor gaming area will include 2,280 video lottery terminals, which act like slot machines. There will also be 219 electronic table games. New York State law does not allow live table games.
It will match anything you can get in New York City,” said Resorts World President Michael Speller.
The center of the casino will house Bar 360 which will showcase a 28-foot-wide-by-18-foot-high high-definition screen for watching televised sporting events.
The casino will also include several food courts, plus a Chinese restaurant called Genting Palace, which is named after Genting Malaysia Berhad, the Malaysian-based parent company of Resorts World New York.
The Aqueduct operation will be the ninth New York casino to open at a pari-mutuel facility.
