Oneida Indian Nation will launch its new Scientific Games-powered sportsbook at its two upstate New York casinos in August.
Powered by Scientific Games’ OpenBet sports betting technology, the sportsbooks will be branded as ‘The Lounge with Caesars Sports’ under a licensing and branding alliance with Caesars Entertainment agreed earlier this year.
A grand opening celebration is planned on 1 August for Oneida Nation’s Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, and Point Place Casino in Bridgeport. A third sportsbook is slated to open at Oneida’s Yellow Brick Road Casino ahead of the start of the NFL regular season in early September.
The sportsbooks will feature LED terminals with high-definition odds boards that constantly update and offer opportunities for in-game wagers, as well as new full-service bars, ticket windows, seating and VIP areas with their own dedicated TV screens.
At Turning Stone, ‘The Lounge with Caesars Sports’ will be prominently located at the resort’s main entrance, featuring a 500-square-foot curved LED screen and an additional 16 large LED TVs throughout the sportsbook.
The new sportsbook at Point Place Casino will be in 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.
Through the partnership with Caesars, players at Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road and Point Place Casino 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.
