The New York Gaming Facility Location Board today approved the Request for Applications to Develop and Operate a Gaming Facility in New York State and opened the bidding period for commercial casino applicants.
The Request for Applications (RFA) may be downloaded at www.gaming.ny.gov/gaming/casinos.php.
The RFA, as mandated by the Upstate New York Gaming and Economic Development Act establishes minimum license fees for commercial casino licenses in each region and details how local support must be illustrated. Applicants are required to participate in an April 30, 2014 Applicants Conference, which will take place in the Capital Region, be open to the public and streamed online. Details on the conference will be made available in the near future.
Applications for gaming facilities will be accepted until June 30, 2014.
