The opening of Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady, New York was “all good news” for Governor Andrew Cuomo, who praised the project and its economic benefits for the area at Wednesday’s public opening. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy and Rush Street Gaming’s Neil Bluhm also spoke about the positive transformation of the Mohawk Harbor site and the collaborative efforts that made it possible. Hundreds of interested visitors gathered to be among the first admitted to the $330 million entertainment facility, which opened almost exactly one year after the initial groundbreaking.

DMA team members Adrian Hogg, Glenn Bedford, and Ronnie Schermerhorn worked onsite in Schenectady throughout the construction process, completed ahead of schedule. They celebrated the milestone at a soft opening earlier this week, including owners, DMA staff, architects, contractors, designers, and others who contributed to the project. DMA will continue to be involved with work on an attached 165-room hotel.
