Oneida Indian Nation partners with Caesars Entertainment in New York

Oneida Indian Nation, owner of Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York, has announced a new partnership with Caesars Entertainment to bring sports betting to the state of New York.

The agreement is subject to a National Indian Gaming Commission Review and the New York State Gaming Commission regulating sports betting.

The partnership will involve sponsorship and loyalty program exchanges, being billed by both the tribe and operator Caesars as a "licensing and branding alliance."

Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO, Ray Halbritter, said: "When it comes to sports betting, Caesars is in a class of its own. We are pleased to be joining forces with this world-renowned gaming leader."

Christian Stuart, Caesars Entertainment Executive Vice President Gaming and Interactive Entertainment, said: "We are eagerly awaiting the National Indian Gaming Commission’s review of this innovative new partnership involving a licensing and branding arrangement.

"The Oneida Indian Nation has already established Turning Stone as the preeminent New York gaming destination, which makes the property and its sister casinos fitting partners for Caesars."
