There are four New York tribes that own federally-approved casinos and Indian gaming facilities.
Three New York tribes have negotiated Class III gaming compacts with the state to allow them to operate Vegas-style games. These tribes are the Seneca Nation of Indians, the Oneida Indian Nation of New York and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe.
The first gaming compact was signed on April 16, 1993 by the Oneida Indian Nation and former Governor Mario M. Cuomo. On July 20, 1993 the Oneida opened Turning-Stone Casino Resort.
The second gaming compact was signed on October 15, 1993 by Governor Cuomo and the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe. On April 12, 1999 the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe opened Akwesasne Mohawk Casino.
Former Governor George E. Pataki signed the third gaming compact on August 18, 2002 with the Seneca Nation of Indians. On December 31, 2002 the Seneca Nation opened the Seneca Niagara Casino. On May 1, 2004 they opened the Seneca Allegany Casino and on July 3, 2007 they opened the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino.
