The Lounge with Caesars Sports … Coming Soon

As expected, 2019 is proving to jump right in with announcements in the U.S legalized sports betting market. Turning to tribal gaming, Oneida Indian Nation, owner of Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y., announced that it will be partnering with global gaming leader Caesars Entertainment to bring sports betting to Upstate New York with a licensing and branding alliance, subject to National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) review. The Lounge with Caesars Sports will reportedly open at Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road Casino and Point Place Casino in 2019, following completion of the NIGC review and the New York State Gaming Commission’s issuance of sports betting regulations, which the Nation will reportedly adopt for its casinos pursuant to the Nation-State gaming compact. 

Through this new relationship, Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road and Point Place Casino players will be able to exchange and redeem their TS Rewards loyalty points, as well as have their player tier levels matched, for Total Rewards Points at all Caesars properties, with the same exchange available for Caesars players at Oneida Indian Nation properties.  Caesars will also sponsor special player promotions and events at its new partner venues, according to press materials.

“When it comes to sports betting, Caesars is in a class of its own,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “We are pleased to be joining forces with this world-renowned gaming leader.Like Oneida Nation Enterprises, Caesars has built its business on exceptional service, as well as a dedication to constant innovation. These shared values create the perfect synergy for a meaningful long-term partnership.”  

“We are eagerly awaiting the National Indian Gaming Commission’s review of this innovative new partnership involving a licensing and branding arrangement.  The Oneida Indian Nation has already established Turning Stone as the preeminent New York gaming destination, which makes the property and its sister casinos fitting partners for Caesars,” said Christian Stuart, executive vice president gaming and interactive entertainment. “When it comes to partnerships, Caesars seeks collaborators who share our commitment to exceeding guest expectations, and we are confident that The Lounge with Caesars Sports at Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road Casino and Point Place Casino will be a top sports betting destination in New York.”
