Empire Resorts 'lauds' Supreme Court's decision on sports betting
Empire Resorts lauds the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to strike down PASPA and thereby open the door to expanded legalization of sports betting. "We are prepared to implement sports betting as part of the gaming experience at our resort casino, Resorts World Catskills, upon the formulation of relevant regulations in New York State," said Ryan Eller, President and CEO of the company. "We believe the ruling has the potential to transform how Americans bet on sports and we are one of the few New York State venues that can be authorized to host a sports pool under New York's Gaming Act. It is our hope that New York State will be ready for New Yorkers to place legal sports bets in time for the fall football season, baseball's World Series, or even sooner."
