The Oneida Indian Nation has announced its Yellow Brick Road Casino’s multi-million dollar expansion as the property enters its development plan into the next phase.
The renovation project is located in Chittenango, New York, following the addition of the sportsbook ‘The Lounge with Caesars Sports’ operated by the Scientific Games.
Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO explained: “With the latest renovations to our gaming floor, the addition of The Lounge with Caesars Sports and this next phase of expansions, YBR will be completely transformed into a multi-entertainment venue unlike anything else in the area.
“This new phase of renovations at YBR is geared to exceed guest expectations, and is a reflection of the Oneida Indian Nation’s ongoing commitment to reinvesting in central New York. By expanding our offerings, we will be creating new jobs and helping to revitalise the region as a premier tourist destination.”
The project encapsulates a renovation of the exterior and gaming operations of the casino, and a new entertainment wing is scheduled to open in early February 2020, bringing with it a range of amenities.
It will have a six-lane luxury Bowling Center in Brunswick, two bays in the Topgolf Swing Suite and a number of other social games. The new section will also include a new full-service bar and restaurant, more than 10 TV screens and sports betting stations.
Peter Kratsios, director of business development from Topgolf Swing Suite, commented: “The expansion of entertainment options at YBR Casino and the reputation the Oneida Indian Nation has for offering the best amenities for guests is consistent with the fun, social experiences guests know and expect from Topgolf.
“More than half of the guests who enjoy Topgolf have never touched a golf club in their life, so we are confident the addition of Topgolf Swing Suites will attract new guests, golfers and non-golfers, to the property.”
Jason Dean, director of new business development for Brunswick Bowling Products, added: “We’re excited about our partnership with the Oneida Indian Nation and bringing new entertainment options to YBR Casino.
“When experienced in an atmosphere like YBR Casino, we know that Brunswick Bowling will be the perfect complement to the YBR Casino experience.”
