Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (February 11, 2020) – Oneida Indian Nation held a press conference today to kick-off the grand opening of the major expansion at YBR Casino & Sports Book. YBR Casino’s latest expansion is a 19,400 sq. ft entertainment venue which includes, “The Lanes,” a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling Center; two high-tech Topgolf Swing Suite bays; multiple pool tables; shuffleboard; sports-betting desk; more than 65 additional slot machines; more than 20 LED screens; and an expansive full-service bar and dining area with a menu developed by an award-winning culinary team.

This evening, YBR Casino & Sports Book will host its official public grand opening event and fundraiser, offering guests an exclusive first look at the new social games and amenities. Proceeds from tonight’s event will support The Good Life CNY and Generation Next, two CenterState CEO initiatives that directly align with the Oneida Indian Nation’s commitment to promoting Central New York as a vibrant and diverse place to live, work, visit and play.

YBR Casino’s new entertainment amenities are the continuation of significant investments made by the Oneida Indian Nation into the property over the last year. The all-new YBR Casino & Sports Book features a brand new gaming floor with a contemporary industrial design, in honor of the region story, and The Lounge with Caesars Sports, the largest sports book in New York with VIP amenities, luxury seating and fan caves.
