New York Gambling News Brief

Casino's second floor opens to public

Queens Tribune,  Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 1:02:30 PM

Resorts World Casino New York City President Michael Speller glanced over the railing in the casino's second floor Liberty Bar down to the stage at Bar360; his arms behind his back, his expression a mix of relief and excitement. Behind him, workers carried ladders across the freshly-laid carpet, eyeing the light fixtures to make sure each is working properly while workers test the remaining video lottery terminals.

A decade after casino gambling was authorized at Aqueduct Racetrack, 14 months after ground broke on the site, and seven weeks after the first bets were placed in the 2,280 VLTs on the casino's first floor, the second and third floors of the complex, including two restaurants and 70,000 square feet of event space, opened to the public at 1 p.m. on Dec. 16.

The second floor, called the Fifth Avenue Casino, is designed to be more sophisticated and geared toward those who are serious gamers, Speller explained. He described it as "more conservative looking" and "aimed to capture the attention of those going out of state for their gaming experience." The spaces between the slot machines are wider and many of the games have higher limits. the source
