So many casinos, so little time. If you're like me you just can't keep up with all the different casinos they've been proposing to pop up in the Albany area lately. Here you can find a breakdown of the 4 major contenders that were presented to the Gaming Facility Location Board this past Monday.
Thanks to All Over Albany, they broke down the nitty gritty details of what we would expect from one of the 4 casinos proposed to be put in the area - the Capital View Casino & Resort in East Greenbush, the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Rensselaer, the Howe Caverns Resort & Casino in Cobleskill, and the Rivers Casino & Resort at Mohawk Harbor in Schenectady.
All four of them have their perks, but also all threaten to take away money, what they're calling "cannibalization" from the current Saratoga Casino & Raceway. Check out the details of what we could expect here
Personally, I'm pulling for the Hard Rock option. Not necessarily for the location, but knowing the brand is HUGE and selfishly wanting more musical acts to come through the area (shocker giving what I do for a living, I know!). Just taking a look at some of the acts coming to other Hard Rock's around the country, I've found Lorde, Phillip Phillips, 3 Doors Down, and many others coming to their locations in just the next few weeks! The Hard Rock brand can help bring in more artists to see, and I for one and okay with that.
Based off these different casinos, which one are you pulling for?
