Celebrating Gaming Compact

Last week marked the 20-year anniversary of the Seneca Nation of Indians and its Seneca Gaming Corp. gaming compact with the Empire State. Leaders of the tribe such as Mr. Nephew and President of the Nation Matthew Pagels gathered at the Niagara Falls casino to celebrate the occasion and discuss the plans for a potential new gaming compact with the state.

Back in March New York State’s administration resorted to extreme actions to force the Nation to pay its overdue slot revenue payments. However, Mr. Pagels commented that this is something of the past. And that now, the tribe is optimistic about the discussion regarding a new gaming compact with the state. The current one expires in December 2023 and negotiations have already kicked off.
