CASINO GAMBLING COMES TO NEW YORK CITY

The Press of Atlantic City reports that a new casino is opening Friday at the Aqueduct Racetrack in New York City. The $830 million project is called Resorts World Casino New York City, with 2,280 video slot machines and 205 electronic table games. In December, owners plan to open a special-events center and concert hall with a Central Park theme. The new casino is expected to take away another chunk of gamblers from Atlantic City, already reeling from competition in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Atlantic City’s gaming industry has lost over 30 per cent  of it’s annual gaming revenue since 2006.
