OIN releases renderings for sports betting lounges


The Oneida Indian Nation has released renderings depicting its planned sports betting lounges it hopes to open at Turning Stone, Yellow Brick Road and Point Place casinos sometime this year.

The images follow last week’s announcement that the Oneida Nation has entered a partnership with Caesars Entertainment to run sports betting venues
subject to review by the National Indian Gaming Commission and rules by the New York Gaming Commission. That follows a ruling last summer by the U.S. Supreme Court declaring laws outlawing sports gambling unconstitutional.

The sports-betting venues will have LED terminals with high-defintion boards that constantly update and offer opportunities for in-game waters, along with new full-service bars, ticket windows and VIP areas.

At Turning Stone, the nation’s flagship casino resort in Vernon, The Lounge with Caesars ports will be at the present Season’s Harvest patio, which will remain open.

It’ll have a 48-by-9-foot curved screen visible from three sides, along with 12 65-inch-screen and five 85-inch-screen monitors.

Point Place is to get a primary video wall with a screen of 24 feet by nearly 7 feet and 23 65-inch, and 11 85-inch screens. 

Point Place and Turning Stone sports-betting venues are scheduled to open first, with Yellow Brick Road to come later as part of a total renovation that includes closing the Tin Woodman’s Flask packaged-beverage store.
