Empire City Casino Overhauls Gaming Floor with More Than 1,000 New Games

BCW Member Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts is overhauling its gaming floor with the addition of more than 1,000 new state-of-the-art games, making it the sixth largest casino floor in the nation and the largest in the MGM Resorts portfolio.

Helping Empire City Casino secure a full gaming license is an ongoing top legislative priority for The Business Council of Westchester. The BCW is a Co-Chair of the “A Sure Bet for New York’s Future Alliance” along with the Bronx Chamber of Commerce and the Westchester-Putnam Central Labor Board.

”In my 15 years working at Empire City, I can’t remember a time where we’ve had so many new games hit the gaming floor over a relatively short time period. MGM Resorts continues to make the necessary investments to ensure a top-tier experience for our guests. Empire City also has some of the highest payouts in the industry, which means that more of the money played at Empire City is returned as payouts to our guests,” said Ryan Munroe, Executive Director of Slot Operations.

The upgrade delivers a new experience for guests offering the most recently released titles in gaming, and replaces almost 20% of the nearly 5,000 slots and electronic table games. The additions include some of the most popular gaming titles being enjoyed in casinos across the globe, including Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes Money Coins and Dancing Drums Explosion, Konami Gaming’s Ba Fang Jin Bao & Aristocrat’s Mighty Cash Double Up.

A gaming floor overhaul of this magnitude in such a short period of time is unusual in the casino industry. Empire City expressed a desire to improve the experience for its 9 million annual guests by replacing outdated and underperforming games with the newest titles available in the industry. Recent changes by the New York State Gaming Association permitted Empire City to source games from a larger number of vendors than has historically been possible, allowing titles from Aristocrat Gaming, Konami and Alfastreet.

Since MGM Resorts acquired Empire City in 2019, the global entertainment and hospitality company has made significant investments at Empire City Casino to enhance the experience for casino guests, racing patrons, and team members alike.
