The state presently allows table gambling in Native American resorts and permits companies to open and run video lottery terminals at so-called racinos.

“We are finally confronting the reality that while New York is already in the gaming business, we need a real plan to regulate and capitalize on the industry,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, after the casino agreement was reached. “This is a process that will ultimately put thousands of New Yorkers to work, drive our economy, and help keep billions of dollars spent by New Yorkers on gaming in the state,” Cuomo said in a statement.
