Hard Rock hopes to build a casino in or near New York, reports NBC.
Jim Allen, president of Hard Rock International, has confirmed that Hard Rock is interested in building a casino in or near New York.
Hard Rock plans to submit an expression of interest to New York state officials before the December 10 deadline.
Wynn Resorts, Bally’s Corp. and Las Vegas Sands are also vying for the rare chance to open a Las Vegas-style casino in New York City, the Hudson Valley Post reported in March. All three companies are still interested.
State officials continue to seek ways to close the historic budget deficit, including issuing three gambling licenses in “lower New York State.” Downstate is considered the Lower Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island.
Two of the three gaming licenses are expected to go to Empire City Casino in Yonkers and Resorts World Aqueduct racino in Queens, as both have been licensed to use slot machines.
This would leave a gambling license up for grabs for the big four casino companies.
