Monticello Casino And Raceway Opens New Simulcasting Area
October 19, 2016
On Monday, Oct. 24, Monticello Casino and Raceway will open its new simulcasting room, with an official ribbon cutting ceremony taking place on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 11 a.m. The event is open to the public.
The new simulcasting room has over 35 television screens on which patrons can watch live harness and thoroughbred racing, and simulcasting from across the country, seven days a week. Patrons will be able to place their bets with live tellers or from SAMs (automated teller machines).
The room also offers a private high limit area with individual betting carrels equipped with flat screen monitors and their own teller and SAM machines.
Other new racing enhancements will include an enclosed and heated bleacher section on the racing apron, which can be accessed via an enclosed and heated walkway from the new simulcasting room.
The newly created simulcasting area represents a major investment on the part of Empire Resorts, the parent company of Monticello Casino and Raceway in the racing operation.
Monticello Raceway General Manager Anthony Bruno said, “The new location will offer our loyal racing patrons the same amenities that our slot players have come to enjoy, such as easy access to the food court, beverage service and our weekend entertainment.”
