Deadline For Casino License

Monday was the application deadline for a full casino gaming license, and now all that's left for resort owners to do--is wait.

This fall, New York State will decide which institution will receive the gaming license, which will allow for a full casino operation.

Tioga Downs submitted their bid for the license today in Schenectady. The dozens of boxes of papers include the details for other developments like a golf course, destination restaurants, a spa, and family friendly activities.

Tioga Downs already has a race track and some gambling operations at their current facility. Owner Jeff Gural believes Tioga Downs is the best option among the three bids in the Southern Tier.

"The reality is we're the only racino bidding for the license so we're the only ones that could be open in early next year," said Jeff Gural, Owner of Tioga Downs.

Gural said that he has had support from local politicians and business owners and that the gaming license will help create local jobs.
