According to the terms of the deal, GNOG will be launching its new online casino under Tioga Downs’ license in New York. The 20-year market access agreement is still subject to future legislation, regulatory approval and license eligibility.

The agreement, if approved, will see GNOG paying Tioga Downs a percentage of its net gaming revenue, subject to minimum royalty payments for the duration of the deal. Tioga Downs is one of only seven commercial and tribal casinos in the state of New York.

Again, the agreement would be contingent on the state regulating such activities. It would also require a legislation permitting casinos to operate multiple online skins as Tioga Downs currently has an agreement with FanDuel. New York congress have sponsored both pieces of necessary legislation in this year’s legislative session.

Thomas Winter, GNOG president, spoke about Golden Nugget Casino’s potential entry into the New York market in a recent press release.

“New York is key to our growth strategy and we look forward to the state embracing online gaming. We will remain focused on securing new market access partners in more US states,” Thomas stressed.
