Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (September 4, 2019) – Timed for the beginning of the NFL regular season, the Oneida Indian Nation officially opened its newest The Lounge with Caesars Sports at Yellow Brick Road Casino today, the largest sports book in New York.  The newest sports book is the Oneida Indian Nation’s third sports book, following the Aug. 1 opening of The Lounge with Caesars Sports at Turning Stone Resort Casino and Point Place Casino.

At this morning’s grand opening event, Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Turning Stone Enterprises CEO was joined New York State Senator Bob Antonacci, Madison County Chairman John Becker, and President of the Central–Northern New York Trades Council Greg Lancette. In honor of the community’s devotion to professional football, The Stampede, the official drumline of the Buffalo Bills, also participated in the grand opening event.

The nearly 9,000 square foot venue is designed to accommodate more than 250 sports fans, featuring a custom-built 32-foot LED screen and more than 35 additional large-screen TVs for the ultimate viewing experience from any location in the lounge. Guests can also enjoy games at the full-service bar with cocktails and menu items developed by the Oneida Indian Nation’s award-winning culinary team.

Adding to the excitement is the introduction of six exclusive “Fan Caves,” which offer private lounge-style viewing areas with luxurious leather couches and chairs, guest controlled screens, and personal food and beverage service.

Sports fans enjoying games at any of The Lounge with Caesars Sports locations are also able to listen to any game being shown in the sports books by simply downloading the free “Listen Everywhere” app.
