The new Akwesasne Mohawk Casino opened. It is located on tribal land. Just along New York's northern border.
The new gaming facility operates 400 gaming machines. There are plans for future expansion and even poker games.
A casino located 6 miles from the new casino has been issuing criticism over the Akwesasne casino. The Three Feathers Casino states that their casino is the only legitimate gaming facility. They also state that they operate their gaming machines under the set regulations of the state compact.
The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino does not have federal or state approval.
