Oneida Indian Nation details extensive Yellow Brick Road Casino expansion

The Oneida Indian Nation has announced a multi-million dollar expansion of its Yellow Brick Road Casino as the property enters the next stage in its renovation strategy.

Located in Chittenango, New York, the renovation project follows the addition of the Scientific Games powered sportsbook ‘The Lounge with Caesars Sports’.

“With the latest renovations to our gaming floor, the addition of The Lounge with Caesars Sports and this next phase of expansions, YBR will be completely transformed into a multi-entertainment venue unlike anything else in the area,” explained Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO. 

“This new phase of renovations at YBR is geared to exceed guest expectations, and is a reflection of the Oneida Indian Nation’s ongoing commitment to reinvesting in central New York. By expanding our offerings, we will be creating new jobs and helping to revitalise the region as a premier tourist destination.”

The development encapsulates a redesign of the casino’s exterior and gaming operations, a new entertainment wing bringing with it a variety of amenities is slated to open in early February 2020.

It will feature a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling centre, two Topgolf Swing Suite bays and a selection of other social games. The new section will also include a new full-service bar and dining, more than ten television screens and dedicated sports betting stations

Peter Kratsios, director of business development from Topgolf Swing Suite, commented: “The expansion of entertainment options at YBR Casino and the reputation the Oneida Indian Nation has for offering the best amenities for guests is consistent with the fun, social experiences guests know and expect from Topgolf.  

“More than half of the guests who enjoy Topgolf have never touched a golf club in their life, so we are confident the addition of Topgolf Swing Suites will attract new guests, golfers and non-golfers, to the property.”

Jason Dean, director of new business development for Brunswick Bowling Products, added: “We’re excited about our partnership with the Oneida Indian Nation and bringing new entertainment options to YBR Casino. 

“When experienced in an atmosphere like YBR Casino, we know that Brunswick Bowling will be the perfect complement to the YBR Casino experience.”
