VERONA, N.Y. -- The Oneida Nation hosted a grand opening for the Lounge with Caesars Sports Book Thursday morning.

Officials with Turning Stone ushered in the new era, as sports betting is now legal in New York.

There's betting at the casino, fans will be able to place bets on pro sports, future bets and some college sports.

They have 30 televisions, a lounge and bar.

The goal is to create an enjoyable place for passionate sports fans which in turn helps tourism to the county.

“It really is a great attraction and just continues the overall aspect of what turning stone has meant to the region, it puts us further ahead of tourism, attraction and growth and in terms of attention nationally and worldwide,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente.

New York is the ninth state to permit and regulate sports betting after the state's Gaming Commission approved regulations earlier this year.

The sports betting area at Yellow Brick Road Casino is expected to open later this summer in time for the NFL regular season.

The Lounge with Caesars Sports:
“The Lounge with Caesars Sports” venues feature LED terminals with high-definition resolution, state-of-the-art odds boards that constantly update and offer opportunities for in-game wagers, as well as new full-service bars, ticket windows, ultra-comfortable seating, and VIP areas with their own dedicated TV screens.

At Turning Stone, “The Lounge with Caesars Sports” is prominently located at the resort’s main entrance, featuring a massive 500-square-foot curved LED screen, with acuity similar to Times Square, visible from three sides. Plus, there are an additional 16 large LED TVs throughout the sportsbook, including a mix of 65-inch screens and 85-inch screens to put the viewers at the center of the sports action.

The new sportsbook at Point Place Casino is located within the newly expanded gaming floor, with the primary video wall featuring a 24-foot HD LED screen, plus an additional 30 LED TVs throughout the space, a mix of both 65-inch screens and 85-inch screens.

Integrated Rewards Program:
Through this new relationship with Caesars Entertainment, Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road and Point Place Casino players will be able to exchange and redeem their TS Rewards loyalty points, as well as have their player tier levels matched, for Caesars Rewards Points at all Caesars properties, with the same exchange available for Caesars players at Oneida Indian Nation properties. Caesars will also sponsor special player promotions and events at its new partner venues, further bringing the excitement of Las Vegas to New York.
