Oneida-Owned NY Sportsbooks

  • All three locations of the Oneida Indian Nation casinos will reopen their sportsbooks on July 22.
  • Each casino will be following health and safety guidelines that mirror the state’s protocols.
  • According to their safety plan, guests of sportsbooks cannot be traveling from 22 states in the country that are labeled as having increasing COVID-19 cases.

NEW YORK – With the restarting of major sports quickly approaching, the Oneida Indian Nation will be reopening their sportsbooks in all three casinos in New York on July 22.

Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, Point Place Casino in Bridgeport, and Yellow Brick Road Casino in Chittenango all reopened the doors of their casinos on June 10 and over a month later the sportsbooks are finally reopening.

The sportsbook in each casino is named The Lounge with Caesars Sports as the Oneidas have partnered with Las Vegas-based Caesar Sports to offer sports fans this platform to wager on their favorite sports.

Each sportsbook will be enforcing health and safety procedures and protocols which are outlined in the casinos “Safer Together” guidelines. These regulations align with New York’s continuing efforts to slow the spread of the virus.

“Sports fans interested in enjoying the start of professional baseball season and the restart of professional basketball at The Lounge with Caesars Sports will be required to follow the same Safer Together protocols as all Oneida Indian Nation venues,” stated a release made by Oneida. “Health and safety protocols include prohibiting access for guests traveling from one of the 22 states identified as having increased cases, requiring a valid ID and mandatory face coverings to enter the property.”

The New York sportsbooks will not allow access to any guest traveling from the following states: Florida, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, California, Iowa, Oklahoma, Idaho, Kansas, Utah, Minnesota, New Mexico, Mississippi, North Carolina, Arizona, Ohio, South Carolina, Nevada, or Wisconsin.

There are no mobile or online legal sports betting platforms allowed in New York, so going to these venues will be many people’s only choice. Bettors also cannot place wagers on New York-based college teams even if they return to play.

Though commercial casinos in Upstate New York are still closed due to the executive orders of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Oneidas and other Indian nation casinos have been able to reopen to the public.
