As part of Empire City Casino’s ongoing support of New York’s education, 52 percent of Empire City Casino net win goes directly to the Lottery to fund education.
Since opening in October 2006, Empire City Casino has generated nearly $1.5 billion in education funding for New York schools.
“Generating $1.5 Billion for schools in our state is incredible and it’s something we’re very proud of,” said Tim Rooney Jr., general counsel at Empire City Casino. “Our property accounts for nearly half of all revenues produced by racetrack casinos for education in New York and we continue to work to ensure that our numbers grow year over year. This is only the beginning.”
In addition to these financial contributions to the Lottery, Empire City Casino also contributes to the state and supports the local community. In just the past five years, Empire City Casino has contributed more than $150 million in aid to the City of Yonkers.
Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway features: 5,300 slot machines, video roulette, electronic craps and baccarat tables, Italian dining in Nonno’s Trattoria, and trackside dining in the Empire Terrace Restaurant, which overlooks the track for live harness racing, as well as a quick bite at the International Food Court and its wide-ranging menu.
