AKWESASNE - The Mohawk Bingo Palace opened its door over 25 years ago, and they are now making another major move.
Moving the bingo palace operation under the roof the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort has been an aspiration of the St Regis Mohawk Tribe for many years. Both gaming entities are under the umbrella of the tribe.
The current $75 million expansion has many areas of growth for the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe, with the transitioning of the Mohawk Bingo Palace to the property considered to make the most sense for the continued success of the gaming industry in Northern New York.
This property will be an all inclusive resort with the addition of the Mohawk Bingo Palace, General Manager Patrick Bassney said. With the completion of the Hotel/ Spa and addition of the Mohawk Bingo Palace, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort will feature over 130,000 square feet of gaming floor, including over 2,000 slots and video gaming machines.
Mohawk Bingo Palace Manager Brenda Johnston said, The staffs of the casino have been great and very welcoming to us. I see our programs getting even more exciting, especially with the addition of Cosmic Bingo on March 16. I expect our guests will really like the transition.
