Rivers Casino & Resort will open in Schenectady, New York on February 8, just one year and five days from the project’s groundbreaking ceremony and 13 months from the approval of its license. The casino’s fast development timeline could make it the first newly built, state-sanctioned casino to open in New York. It is the first to announce a grand opening date.

Officials including Greg Carlin of Rush Street Gaming, Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy, and Rivers Casino General Manager Mary Cheeks gathered to unveil the opening date on an LED sign at the casino entrance and to thank construction partners and local trades for their efforts. DMA is pleased to be part of the team leading completion of the $330 million entertainment facility, developed to be LEED-certified. In addition to gaming, Rivers Casino & Resort will feature varied dining options, an attached 165-room hotel, a 10,000-square-foot banquet facility, and riverfront views and access.
