Monticello WynnPlans for a new casino in Monticello, New York were revealed last night uncovering a proposed development of a $600 million resort near the site where Mohegan Sun’s planned casino, a hotel and a harness racetrack project will reside.

Theday.com reports the proposed resort would be built in Thompson on the former Concord Hotel property, a famous Catskills landmark. The $600 million project Mohegan Sun is pursuing with Louis Cappelli, a Westchester County developer, would be called the Mohegan Sun Concord.

The latest plan is being offered by Entertainment Properties Trust, which owns the land involved, and Empire Resorts, which operates the Monticello Casino & Raceway.

 

After an Alabama federal court jury acquitted Milton McGregor and five others Wednesday on charges accusing them of buying and selling votes for pro-gambling legislation, the owner of VictoryLand casino in Shorting has announced he will reopen for business in a few months’ time.

A report by 13News reveals the casino will feature electronic bingo machines just like before. An interview with Milton McGregor yesterday with The Associated Press tells us that he also plans to reopen VictoryLand’s hotel and restaurants and bring back live dog racing.

He said he won’t to try to pass legislation to allow him to have electronic bingo games at his dog track in Jefferson County.

 

Wynn Resorts was flying high today when it won its first legal battle of the Okada case. A Nevada judge ordered Wynn Resorts Ltd to turn over only two pages of the many pages of documents that Okada’s team had requested for a lawsuit related to a $135 million contribution by the Las Vegas casino to the University of Macau.

In a report by Reuters, Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez rejected Okada’s request for other documents, which she called “overbroad.”

A spokesman for Wynn had no comment  and according to Reuters, no Okada spokesman was not available.
