New York’s Largest Casino Now Open in the Catskills
Resorts World Catskills has opened their doors today, Feb. 8.
We reported last month that according to Lohud.com, Resorts World Catskills announced that doors would open Thursday, Feb. 8 at 8am, opening ahead of it's original schedule.
The $1 billion facility was initially scheduled to open on March 1. It's been a 40 year wait for a full-scale casino in the Catskills, and World Resorts Catskills president Ryan Eller is hopeful that the new casino will bring people back to the area. The Catskill area was once a booming tourist region for New York City residents who would make the 90 mile trip to the Mountains to get away from the everyday city life. "Our staff has worked tirelessly to ensure that when we open our doors for the first time, we will be ready to provide our guests with unparalleled experience," Eller said.
