Resorts World Hudson Valley Sets Grand Opening Date

Genting Americas’ newest casino property in New York State, Resorts World Hudson Valley, is now just two weeks away from makings its grand opening to the public. In a press release from Monday, December 12, 2022, the company announced that the new gaming establishment in the Newburgh Mall will officially kick off operations on December 28, 2022.

Located at the Orange County at the Newburgh Mall, just 60 miles north of Manhattan, Resorts World Hudson Valley will welcome its patrons with over 1,200 slots and electronic table games. In addition to exceptional betting amenities, the property will also come with the Resorts World Bet Sports Bar, overall making it a great destination for a night out.

Save the Date

In the press release, the President of Genting Americas East, Robert DeSalvio, commented that RWHV represents the company’s vision, which will create an entertainment destination for hundreds of thousands of guests and visitors. In his words, the property will benefit the local, regional, and statewide community, and invited everyone to the soon-to-launch casino.

According to reports from the company, the Newburgh Mall gaming hall will provide over 250 new full-time jobs with an average annual wage of US$72,000. Additionally, the new venue is projected to bring over US$65 million in tax revenue for the state, which will be reinvested into public schools. The company’s casinos have already secured US$3.6 billion for New York education.

It is also worth mentioning that the new gaming venue will help revitalize the Newburgh Mall, as it is expected to benefit the other tenants and even attract new ones. Once fully, operational, RWHV will be Genting Americas’ third casino entertainment location in the Empire State, with the other two being Resorts World Catskills in Monticello and Resorts World New York City in Queens.

Last but now least, the operator also advises its guests to sign up for its Genting Rewards, which is Resorts World’s loyalty program. Being a member is free and it grants members access to unique offerings. More information on the new Orange County amenity can be found on its official website or on its official social networks.

Pursuing NYC Expansion

Meanwhile, Genting Americas is also looking to expand operations at its Resorts World New York City by transforming it into a fully-fledged casino. But in order to do so, the company would need a full-casino license from the state. According to CGS-CIMB Research, the Queens casino is considered one of the front-runners for one of the commercial licenses.

In order to be among the successful applicants, the casino would also need public backing, which RWNYC already has. Back in March 2021, many community groups and organizations from the borough voiced their support for the property’s expansion. By transforming into a full-scale casino, the property would provide many new jobs and bring in more revenue to the area.
